WHO Foundation
Chief Operating Officer

The WHO Foundation is an independent grant-making foundation that is unique in the area of world health. Its aim is to enhance the global public health system through the resource it raises and in the way it uses it. Impact, innovation, and service are the values that inform everything it does.

By funding high-impact initiatives and advancing strategies of innovation, effectiveness, and rapid response, in the World Health Organisation (WHO) and its partners, the Foundation strengthens the global health ecosystem. Headquartered in Geneva and legally independent from WHO, the Foundation works with individual donors, the general public and corporate partners to strengthen health systems globally. Specifically, the WHO Foundation supports global public health needs, from prevention, mental health, and non-communicable diseases to emergency preparedness, outbreak response and health system strengthening.

The WHO Foundation has been created to complement resources to support WHO and its implementing partners in this vital work. Anil Soni is the Foundation's first CEO. He is now building the team that will give shape to this vision and lead the organisation in the realisation of its initial target of $1 billion of new funding. For more information please visit the foundation's website.

WHO Foundation Strategic Objectives

  • Support the global health ecosystem and promote health as a global public good.
  • Conduct advocacy campaigns that will: support the implementation of WHO GPW; support WHO implementing partners (IPs); promote WHO's leadership in global health and strengthen its independence.
  • Support the financing of WHO's GPW13 (and subsequent GPWs) by complementing WHO's resource mobilisation strategy and facilitating areas where WHO is not traditionally structured and equipped, including modalities for engagement and fundraising with HNWI and the general public.​

The programming of the WHO Foundation is divided into 3 thematic areas: (i) keep the world safe, (ii) promote health, and (iii) serve the vulnerable; these themes are adapted regionally for fundraising purposes, so that HNWI, corporate actors and the general public in each region can fund projects that will interest them in their region. These themes are the basis for programming, the baskets from which the Foundation will identify projects.

The Chief Operational Officer (COO) will be responsible for the “engine room" of the WHO Foundation. S/he will ensure the optimal day-to-day operation while supporting the CEO in developing and driving the strategic agenda. Specifically, the COO will be responsible for Finance and Accounting, Human Resources, and IT.

Chichester Festival Theatre
Chair


Chichester
2012-069L

Chichester Festival Theatre is one of the UK's flagship theatres, renowned for the exceptionally high standard of its productions as well as its work with the community and young people. Situated in a cathedral city in West Sussex between the South Downs and the sea, the Festival Theatre's bold thrust stage design makes it one of England's most striking playhouses – equally suited to epic drama and world-renowned musicals. Its studio theatre, the Minerva, is particularly noted for premieres of bold new writing alongside intimate revivals.

The Theatres' architecture was designed to be democratic: everyone mingles in the same spacious foyers and the auditoriums allow and uninterrupted view of the stage from every seat. That spirit of inclusivity remains at the heart of our work, on stage and off.

Over the past five decades, myriad productions originated at Chichester – whether in the 1300-seat Festival Theatre or the 300-seat Minerva Theatre – have transferred to the West End or toured nationally and internationally.

During 2020 (prior to the COVID-19 pandemic) productions originating from Chichester were due be seen across the globe. Laura Wade's new play The Watsons, adapted from the unfinished novel by Jane Austen, was scheduled to run at London's Harold Pinter Theatre; Caroline, Or Change was due to transfer to New York's Roundabout Theatre, with Sharon D. Clarke recreating her Olivier Award-winning performance as Caroline (now scheduled for autumn 2021). An autumn UK tour of Quiz was planned as well as Singin' in the Rain at Sadler's Wells and Japan.  

Recent transfers from Chichester (as originating producer) include Caroline, Or Change (London's Hampstead Theatre and the West End's Playhouse Theatre 2018/19); Ian McKellen in King Lear, which transferred to the West End's Noël Coward Theatre in 2018 and was broadcast to cinemas internationally by NT Live; and Daniel Evans's production of Quiz, a new play by James Graham, which also transferred to the West End's Noël Coward Theatre in 2018. ​​

Rooted firmly in its community, the Theatre runs a Learning, Education and Participation (LEAP) programme that is a beacon of excellence and inspiration to its local audience, as well as being home to one of the country's largest youth theatres with over 750 members. An extensive range of activities, workshops and events for people of all ages, abilities and social backgrounds, combined with a vibrant outreach and community partnerships programme, involve over 62,500 participants every year.

Following the completion of 11 successful years as a trustee and Chair of the Board, Sir William Castell is retiring from the Board. He will remain in post until December 2021 to allow a smooth transition to his appointed successor.

Chichester Festival Theatre has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to advise on this appointment. The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 26th February 2021.

2012-032L

​Having previously been operated on behalf of Government by a third party, from the 1st July 2021, the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE plc) will become an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB), with the company wholly owned by the Ministry of Defence (MOD).  The change in model will remove the current commercial arrangements, enhancing the MOD's agility in the future management of the UK's nuclear deterrent, whilst also delivering on core MOD objectives and value for money to the taxpayer.

With these changes in mind, the MOD now wishes to identify four Non-Executive Directors to join the AWE plc Board from July 2021. The MOD seeks candidates with proven experience in one of;

  • Advanced manufacturing;
  • Large scale programme / complex infrastructure/ project management and assurance with capital
    intensive industries comparable to AWE plc;
  • Workforce strategy, culture change and incentivisation;
  • Finance and risk, with prior experience on an Audit Committee

These will complement two further independent NEDs with sector expertise who will be directly appointed.

The Board is responsible for the leadership of an organisation at the heart of the UK's strategic nuclear deterrent, carrying out essential research and advanced manufacturing on the nuclear warhead.  As an Independent NED on a fiduciary Board, you will:

  • Contribute to setting, monitoring and challenging the strategic direction of AWE plc, by assisting in
    developing key strategic objectives, overseeing their achievement and ensuring they remain appropriate;
  • Contribute to open and honest debate at Board meetings and provide constructive challenge
    to the executive decisions, adding diversity of thought and industry experience to the Board;
  • Promote the long-term success of AWE plc and ensure the accountability of AWE plc,
    scrutinising the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives, and monitoring
    the reporting of performance;
  • Uphold high standards of integrity and probity, supporting the Chair and executive directors by seeking
    to instil the appropriate culture, values and behaviours in the boardroom and beyond;
  • Commit sufficient time and resource to fulfil all functional responsibilities and continually
    develop personal capabilities to do so.

The MOD is looking for candidates with the following profile:​

  • UK national who is willing to undergo DV clearance (if successful);
  • A good understanding of large and complex organisations operating in a changing and highly
    regulated environment;
  • Focussed on results and a willingness to look for solutions combined with a focus on
    targeted performance measurement;
  • Pragmatic approach, including an ability to adapt quickly to fast moving situations;
  • Clear and effective influencing and communication skills, including an ability to operate effectively
    at Board level, challenging an executive effectively but constructively, and communicating with
    a wide range of audiences;
  • An open mind with the courage to think independently and strategically, and an ability to
    effectively analyse complex issues while driving tangible delivery/change;
  • Team working and collaboration skills, including an ability to work together with other executives
    and non-executives in a low ego environment to solve collective problems; and
  • Capacity to carry out this role effectively, with a commitment to AWE's mission, and desire to add real
    value to the Board and the business.​

Appointees may be asked to chair various sub committees including Audit & Risk, Remuneration and Projects & Programmes. One appointee will become the Senior Independent Director.
