Could you lead, shape and inspire PETA Limited to even greater success?

Our longstanding CEO is retiring after many successful years and we are now seeking a new Chief Executive Officer to lead, shape and inspire our highly successful organisation.

As an employer led organisation and an Ofsted-assured ‘Good’ training provider, with many strengths, and an excellent reputation for the delivery of apprenticeships and corporate training, we are an impressive company in every respect, yet we won’t rest on our laurels as we strive to become ‘Outstanding’ in everything we do.

In return, we offer a progressive, market rate salary package, a supportive and committed Board of Directors, underpinned by superb staff and excellent estates and working environments.

Note:  A telephone call can be arranged with the retiring CEO, Bob Hiskey, for interested candidates.  This can be arranged through his PA Sarah Duffett.

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent
  • Proven track record in senior management and leadership
  • Sound financial management experience
  • Good commercial business acumen to deliver cost effective services
  • Numerate, with well-developed analytical and problem solving-skills
