The Eric Liddell Community is undergoing a period of growth, expansion and change in the delivery of caring services, alongside exciting plans for The Eric Liddell 100, which aims to secure, develop and celebrate Eric Liddell’s legacy.
At The Eric Liddell Community our vision is a community where no one feels lonely. We are driving progress towards this by: providing a Day Service for people living with dementia alongside a programme of community-based activities for people living with dementia; a programme of well-being activities, courses and classes for unpaid carers, and running our vibrant Community Hub, in the heart of Edinburgh.
The Chief Operating Officer will play a key role in the strategic management of the organisation, maintaining existing operations, funding arrangements and driving forward new initiatives and projects to assist the long-term sustainability of the charity.
If you would like to work for an excellent care charity, in a friendly and supportive working environment with a focus on staff wellbeing and development, in a rewarding role where you will really make a difference to people’s lives, then join us here at The Eric Liddell Community.

Edinburgh is a multi-faith city with a vibrant art culture. In 1947 two Jewish refugees were at the forefront of establishing the Edinburgh International Festival which along with the City’s Fringe Festival would become the biggest arts festival in the world. The aim was to create positive and enriching experiences that people from all over the world could enjoy following the trauma of World War Two. The Edinburgh Jewish community is over 200 years old and throughout its history has contributed to the cultural landscape of Scotland’s capital city. The Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre aims to be a continuing and evolving producer of cultural events and activities open to all.
EJCC was established to protect, preserve, sustain and grow the Jewish community in Edinburgh. Since its founding, EJCC has presented dozens of culturally significant programmes experienced by thousands of Jewish people as well as those who have an interest in Jewish culture.
We are now searching for candidates to apply for the position of our next chair. Following four years of distinguished service, our current chair is required by our constitution to step down.
EJCC is financially strong, has many active volunteers, has a part-time professional administrator, and is committed to future growth. The new chair may come from a variety of sectors, for example education, culture, commercial, charity, national/local politics.
Time commitment – one day per week, although not necessarily spread evenly throughout the year. Much of the work can be carried out remotely.
