Our Search for A New Chief Executive Begins


We announced in late December 2018 that Chief Executive John Yarham was to leave the business after six years. Having teamed up with specialist recruiters, Peridot Partners, the search has now begun to find a replacement.

Tim Richmond OBE - Chair of the Board said, “I am looking forward to welcoming a new CEO who will equally espouse the strong sense of values that we hold, whilst combining this with exciting and innovative plans for our further growth.

“Futures has a long history – over twenty years have passed since we first spun out of Nottinghamshire County Council – and our endurance has been founded on a combination of quality and enterprise. We place impact on individuals’ lives and the strengthening of local economies at the forefront of our activity, which was recognised in our ground-breaking Ofsted rating of Outstanding in 2017.

“Over the next few years we wish to grow further to establish an even greater impact on more people’s lives and to work with a broader range of partners to achieve this. To achieve this exciting vision, we are looking for a creative and skilled leader who combines strong values aligned to our mission with entrepreneurial flair.”

The closing date for formal applications is 9.00am on Thursday 14th February 2019. For more information about the role and Futures please visit their site.
