Current Opportunities:

Interim Executive

Role

We are looking for an Interim Executive to help support our leadership team as we embark on an exciting period of change and growth. You will support our CEO and join our leadership team to advise, lead and manage the organisation.

We need you to join us for 3 to 6 months initially, but this might be extended depending on the outcomes of the role. We are looking for someone to work between 2 and 3 days per week. We are flexible and open to discussing your weekly hours, contract length and pay rates as for the right skills we’re happy to work flexibly with you.

Our charity is embarking on a programme of change to strengthen its reach and impact, and you will be joining us at an important and exciting time in our growth. Current projects include:

  • New service creation
  • Joint-Venture partnership with a larger commercial organisation.

Our funding for the position is secure. We have changed how we deliver services in response to Covid -19 and we are ambitious to embed what we have learned. We are needing your experience and skills to help us deliver this.

Aside from the job description, we will be looking for the successful candidate to provide hands-on leadership skills to our existing management team, with a strong strategic focus. Specifically, you will be tasked with reviewing our operating model, system and processes, and helping to place the organisation in a more sustainable and viable financial position, ahead of the new on-going opportunities.

About you

We are looking for an effective and motivating leader who is highly collaborative, with significant experience in Chief Operating Officer and/or Chief executive leadership roles.

Ideally you will have a background in the third sector, but experience of leading a medium size social enterprise scaling up is more important to help us achieve our goals

You’ll be experienced in driving change through engagement and influencing, leading organisational change, and nurturing a culture of continuous improvement in those that you lead. Experience of working in an environment for business transformation is essential.

You can be based outside of Glasgow as long as you are willing to travel to our locations when/if required.
