Brighton, UK, 19th January 2022 – Paul Scrivens has been promoted to the position of Chief Executive of The LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C beginning a role that will see him support the Chairman and the Board of Trustees in delivering the Foundation’s day-to-day business plan and strategy.
The promotion comes as recognition of the outstanding commitment, resilience and professionalism Paul has shown during his 4 years with LoveLocalJobs. In that time, he has taken the organisation from strength to strength, in particular, doing a phenomenal job during an incredibly difficult last 24 months for businesses.
The new role will see Paul continue to lead the Foundation’s award-winning team, which are committed to delivering creative, inspiring, and much-needed programmes to students with the aim of raising their aspirations and reaching their full potential.
In 2021 alone, the Foundation has delivered 33 programmes to almost 5,000 students across Sussex.

“I’m truly honoured to take on the role of Chief Executive at The LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C”, said Paul. “I feel incredibly grateful to be guiding such a wonderful organisation and team of people into the next phase of our development as we begin the process of registering as a charity.”
“We’ve overcome significant challenges and achieved a huge amount in recent years. I'm excited for the next chapter in our journey as we aim to help as many young people as possible, irrespective of their barriers, to realise their potential and to achieve amazing things.”
Paul’s promotion comes at an incredibly important stage in The LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C’s development. With the Foundation working towards becoming a charity, his experience and leadership skills will be instrumental in raising the Foundation’s profile, developing its fundraising capabilities, and ensuring its vision, mission, and values remain at the core of everything it does.
Under Paul’s leadership, The LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C will look to build on its success of recent years in supporting and inspiring students across the South East, as well as collaborate better with other fantastic charities, groups and partner organisations seeking to make a real difference in the local community.
“I am incredibly proud of what Paul has achieved in his time with LoveLocalJobs” said Gary Peters, Founder and Chairman of The LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C. “He has led from the very front since day one, over-delivered on every single one of our expectations and has built a phenomenal team around him.
