Chief Executive, Kent
Salary £65,000-£75,000 p.a. depending on experience
Based in the heart of Kent, Crossways Community has been providing care and support to people with poor mental health for over 50 years. In that time our award winning services have been able to make a huge impact on people in our society; people who are often marginalised or misunderstood.
We have a well thought-out Vision, Mission and Strategic Plan and a Business Plan that supports our strategy, and having a sound, financial model to rely on, a new CEO will have the opportunity to review, revise and refine our plans for the future. So as our new CEO we would welcome your own ideas, initiatives and vision to take the charity further in the direction we are going or indeed to embark on other needed and worthwhile initiatives.
We look forward to meeting people with an extraordinary drive and passion who will be able to step out in their Christian faith and drive forward our vision to achieve excellence and growth in our services where people with poor mental health are not alone, but receive the care, respect and support they need.
You will have the relevant qualifications and experience and believe you can successfully take on this important role. An exciting and rewarding future awaits the right candidate!

Crossways Community is a Christian charity which provides housing and support for adults suffering a range of mental illnesses.
We also run a social enterprise focussing on furniture upcycling and provide training for schools, businesses, churches and community groups to help people understand their own mental health and build better mental resilience. Our cafe ‘The Kitchen Table’ in Camden Road Tunbridge Wells is a cafe for everyone but with a special focus on providing a supportive environment for those living with poor mental health and those who support them. In 2017, Crossways started working in partnership with Mental Health Residential Limited (MHR), another mental health charity in Southborough; on 1st May 2020, the two charities merged under the Crossways Community name.
