Founded as a Christian Charity in 1983, HealthLink360 [SC000948] is Scotland's leading provider of support to missionaries, aid agency workers, medical relief teams and volunteers who undertake overseas work in challenging and often hostile environments. Additionally, we provide support here in Scotland to school groups preparing to travel, to the local community with counselling and working with Church organisations, assessing their candidates for Christian ministry.
Embracing our ethos of 'whole person care for global workers' HealthLink360 provides a unique service offering a comprehensive range of medical, psychological and travel health services both in person, at our Travel Clinic just outside Edinburgh, both on site and online.
HealthLink360 was born out of the personal experiences of its founders, the experience of those who travel internationally to work, often in intense and high-risk environments, only to return home physically or mentally fragile. We provide an expert level of care to our clients before they go, during their assignment and when they return.
For 35years we have worked with numerous other charities and organisations, including Medecine Sans Frontieres, the NHS Ebola team to prepare their overseas volunteers for assignment and most recently preparing the UK Med Team for their mission work in Ukraine.
We employ an experienced team of workers (a mix of contracted and sessional): doctors, travel nurses, clinical psychologists, counsellors and operational staff. We are regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland. You can read more about us on our website at healthlink360.org
Due to careful governance during the pandemic, HealthLink360 is now seeing a rapid rise in demand for services. We have made a surplus each of the last two financial years, despite covid. In September 2021 we appointed an interim CEO to help us evaluate the future of the organisation. We are now confident about our future and wish to appoint a new permanent CEO for the next stage of the journey.
Based at Carberry in East Lothian, the role involves leading the team in day-to-day matters as well as working with the trustees, monitoring performance, and setting the future direction of the organisation. The role is 3 days a week, with the clinic currently operating on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday. This opportunity would suit individuals from a variety of different backgrounds. However proven operational team leadership (over a minimum of 3 years) and budgetary experience are essential. Experience of some of the following would be advantageous: Organisational leadership, charity leadership & governance, health sector (either management or clinical), fundraising, marketing and working with board of trustees.
As a Christian organisation we would like to hear from people with an active faith. Because HealthLink360 is a globally focused charity we enjoy the energy that a diverse team brings to our work, and we are committed to improving diversity amongst our staff, trustees, and supporters. We’re open to applications from a broad range of backgrounds and experience.
