Kyndi Ltd is Medway Council’s Local Authority Trading Company (LATCo). Established in 2016, it currently delivers Telecare and Monitoring services to residents, businesses, and other local authorities with a team of 30 people. After a significant turnaround, Kyndi is entering its fourth year of profitability with the remit and opportunity to accelerate growth.
About the role
The CEO is accountable to the Kyndi board for setting, agreeing, and delivering the three-year strategy and one-year financial plans. With full P&L responsibility, this combines delivering the day to day operational commitments with rigour, while planning and delivering future growth.
The strategic move of a service line to the Local Authority recently reduced the P&L to £2m. Growth will come from existing products, adjacent markets, and Local Authority service line moves that align with Kyndi’s strategy to innovate care in the local community. The new CEO will be fundamental in this process.
We are looking for a leader who has a track record of growth, whether in a private or local authority market, and can balance the ability to think long term with managing the day to day delivery with their team at pace. Results orientated, we expect you’ll quickly understand Kyndi’s trading markets and find opportunities for growth.
You’ll be accustomed to working in a multi-agency market and be skilled at drawing the best from others - whether that’s through the direct leadership of your team, or the delivery models you establish with Clients.
As a great communicator you will be able to take the team with you while giving the board comfort and clarity on your plans. Business and political acumen, sensitivity and understanding are vital: you must have the credibility and communication skills to act as a trusted adviser to the Kyndi Board, Local Authority and Commercial Clients.
