Using gardening to change lives!

Thrive is the leading charity in the UK using gardening to change the lives of disabled people.

Gardening is a wonderfully flexible medium that can transform lives and Thrive sees first-hand how gardening can help
everyone, regardless of age or disability.

Social and therapeutic horticulture is the process of using plants and gardens to improve physical and mental health, as well as communication and thinking skills. It also uses the garden as a safe and secure place to develop someone's ability to mix socially, make friends and learn practical skills that will help them to be more independent.

As a key member of the Senior Management team and reporting directly to the CEO, the Head of Client Services has direct responsibility for the strategy, delivery and development of Thrive's Client Services and will be the vital link between strategic and operational duties.

The successful candidate will have a track record of stakeholder engagement and the project management of person-centred client services, including leading on the management and review of safeguarding procedures and operational quality standards.

This is a unique and vital role where multi-tasking, decision making, and prioritisation of tasks is the norm, which will include budgetary responsibility and the inspirational line management of three Regional Centre Managers (London, Reading and Birmingham).
