This is my first time on this platform. I am coming to this having spent a little bit of time "retired", but now looking to do something new, with a small/medium sized charity looking for my skill set and experience, but having no luck.
The question is - are CEO's and Trustees nervous with the idea of employing a former "founder/CEO" in a senior role in their organisations?
I have done everything from start-up a new charity, including working in a voluntary capacity until the org had sufficient income for me to be paid, convert to CIO, HR, bid writing, governance, H&S, building a VC Org into an almost £1m turnover org and more, but can't get past an interview for a growing number of roles I have applied for recently, often not even getting shortlisted at all. Any thoughts here would be great.
