Carers of East Lothian supports all adults in a caring situation in East Lothian to get information and services to help their individual caring role, enhance their own wellbeing, and strengthen their collective voice to improve services.
Carers of East Lothian is the leading local support organisation for people who are looking after friends or family who are frail, disabled or who have chronic health problems. We have an excellent reputation, a track record of delivery and strong local partnerships.
We are looking for a new Chief Executive who can build on our successes and lead the organisation forward at an exciting time in our development. We want a strategic leader who thrives in a complex environment, has excellent negotiation and engagement skills and who will be an effective advocate for unpaid carers in East Lothian. You should also be a proven team leader who will drive the organisation forward by fostering the skills of others.
In return we offer flexible working arrangements and a chance to make a real difference to peoples’ lives. The post is based in our purpose built offices in the new East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington and PVG scheme membership is essential as is the ability to drive and access to a car.
Carers of East Lothian is striving to be an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
