Do you believe that Business can be a Force for Good? If so read on….

The Rooflight Company, based in the Cotswolds, has recently become employee owned, with the founders transferring the majority of their shares into an Employee Ownership Trust and stepping away from the business. The business now requires a MD with a collaborative leadership style, as the 72 employee shareholders (co-owners) you ‘serve’ are the people you work with.

The founders established a legacy comprising 3 Guiding Principles – Values-led culture, Innovation and Long-term sustainability from both a profit and environmental point of view. The company’s vision is to be a force for good through these principles which are embedded in the business, and your job will be to head up the Leadership Team and the business to continually deliver all three.

The Rooflight Company has a reputation for well designed and manufactured high quality products, and is considered by its customers and competitors to be the premium choice for rooflights within the architectural building product market.

You will be reporting to the Board of Trustees – six people (two of whom are Co-owners) whose job it is to represent the best interests of

Co-owners and to hold you and the Leadership Team accountable for delivering the 3 Guiding Principles.

The key challenge is to effectively lead and inspire a high-performing Leadership Team to increase our long term sustainable profit, by innovatively developing our people, processes and products to their full potential, while reducing our environmental impact.

If you can demonstrate that you are entrepreneurial, ethical, engaging and commercially strong, with a collaborative leadership style, and if you have proven experience in leading a values-led business with a focus on the Triple Bottom Line, you will have the advantage.
