Partners for Inclusion (PFI) Group is a collection of small, autonomous person centred organisations specialising in providing individually tailored support for people with learning disabilities and/or mental health needs.
We have a caring, dynamic learning culture driven by a core set of values centred on inclusion and believe that people with support needs are more than capable of being active citizens in our society.
We support autonomy, work creatively and take risks wisely. We empower people we support and people who work for us and drive our organisation through a flat management structure.
This is a unique opportunity for the right person to join a well-regarded social care charity who provide highly individualised support to people who have needs relating to a learning disability, mental health needs or both.
We try to base our work on principals of upholding individuals’ human rights to self-determination. To assist this, we operate a unique system of Individual Services Funds which seeks for the individual and those closest to them have financial information to assist informed decision making. As such this requires a high level of attention to detail. You will embrace a ‘hands on approach’ where each team member including yourself will be able to take on any task within the Finance team.
As an Executive Director reporting directly to the Chief Executive and the Board of Trustees you will play a pivotal role in the development in strategy and governance of the organisation. You will have a proven track record in providing sound financial advice.
This can be a challenging role, to be successful you will need to be astute, insightful able to operate at both an operational and strategic level with a high level of integrity and openness.
If this sounds like you and you share our belief in the positive capacity of all people regardless of ability or disability to shape their own lives, then we would love to hear from you.

I’m a young man and 22 years old. I live with my parents in West Kilbride, North Ayrshire and I am looking to recruit a support practitioner, to join my team.
I’m not one to lounge around the house! I enjoy getting out in my car so a great sense of direction, and city centre driving would be a plus! I love going to shopping centres and dining out. I really enjoy city breaks all over the UK. I am physically active so someone who can help motivate me would be great. My friends and family say I have a wicked sense of humour, and I’m always up for a laugh. I love going to new places and trying new activities so someone creative and that can bring new ideas to my life would be great!
To support me you will need to be:
- Outgoing and energetic
- Confident with a cracking sense of humour
- Patient and a good communicator
- Comfortable with physical contact
- Able to think on your feet
- Have a full UK drivers licence, be a confident driver and be able to drive a Motability car is a must
Benefits of working with me:
- A position where being able to have a laugh is a major plus.
- Comprehensive in-house learning and training
- Opportunities for personal development
