We are looking to appoint a new CEO who can take this unique organisation to the next level.
Saheliya is a specialist mental health and well-being support organisation for women and girls (12+) living with and/or surviving from experiences of racial inequality compounded by gender-based abuse, living in Scotland. We promote mental well-being by combating the effects of discrimination and abuse, reducing the stigma of mental health, improving access to mainstream services and dismantling the structural inequality that exists for minority ethnic women.
This is an exceptional opportunity to have a lead role in a unique and innovative organisation helping to change the lives of some of Scotland’s most marginalised and at risk women and children and gendered abuse, reducing the stigma of mental illness, and improving access to mainstream services while enabling women to also move on into opportunities for self-development and employment.
Saheliya’s services and partnership work extends through healthcare, housing, education, employment, immigration and access to justice- delivered across Edinburgh, the Lothians, and Greater Glasgow, as well as wider Scotland.
Our current CEO, who has enabled the organisation to flourish, grow and succeed over the past 13 years, will be stepping down from her position this year. We are therefore now seeking an individual who has passion to grasp and act upon our full potential, taking an exceptional organisation to an even higher level.
See attached CEO brief for further information.

Cruse Scotland is seeking to recruit a self-motivated, proactive Chief Executive to lead the organisation through our ambitious new strategy and into the next phase of our development. You will be an influential, experienced and persuasive leader with excellent interpersonal skills. You will have a proven ability to develop successful partnerships, engaging people at all levels, as well as a strong understanding of the importance of supporting those who have experienced bereavement. As well as having a knowledge of the health and social care sector, you will have excellent financial and project management skills. You will deliver Cruse Scotland’s strategic goals, whilst continuing to increase the organisation’s profile, providing inspirational leadership to our very committed staff and volunteer teams.

If you have a successful track record in organisational leadership and are passionate about making a difference by helping us to reach even more bereaved people in Scotland, then we would really like to hear from you.
Cruse Scotland is Scotland’s only open-to-all bereavement support charity, providing support to bereaved adults, families and children across Scotland for the last 50 years.
Research suggests there were approximately 49,900 people in need of bereavement support in Scotland in 21/22. The data shows that our staff and volunteers working together reached approximately 10% of this population. This shows a significant reach and impact for an organisation with a small staff infrastructure that is dependent almost entirely on highly skilled volunteers for service delivery. While this is a very significant achievement, we continue to work tirelessly to develop our services to enable us to reach even more people who need our help.
The positive impact of Cruse on those we support (in terms of improved mental and physical wellbeing, reduced need for GP and other medical assistance and earlier return to work) is clearly demonstrated by our evidence-based evaluation.
We have ambitious plans for growth and development to help us to reach more bereaved people and we are looking for an excellent candidate to lead the organisation to deliver our strategy.
Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of children and young people with a life shortening condition? Do you have leadership experience in health or social care, a desire to develop people and experience of service improvement in an ever changing environment?

About the role
As the Head of Research & Monitoring Unit (RMU), Scotland and Northern Ireland you will contribute to the strategic direction of Sustrans' evidencing work. You will provide strategic and operational leadership to RMU, working alongside the Director of Evidence and Insight and RMU’s Senior Leadership Team.
RMU conducts evaluation and research to assure the delivery of Sustrans impact and influence policy, investment and practice in support of Sustrans’ vision.
You will drive a culture change in Sustrans where impact is central to the operation, and this is understood and acted upon at all levels; you will identify areas of the Sustrans Scotland delivery portfolio in which impact can be improved; and you will empower colleagues to think creatively, pragmatically and collaboratively about developing outputs that are useable, objective, efficient and timely.
This senior leadership role, it is about evidencing and communicating the value of Transport Scotland’s investment in active travel, and demonstrating the value added by Sustrans’ role.
Acting as the senior-level interface between the RMU, Sustrans Scotland and Transport Scotland, you will enable the generation of high quality evidence, use this material to support service improvement in delivery by Sustrans in Scotland and partners, and engage Transport Scotland, providing justification of their investment and advocacy for future policy and investment decisions.
This role also covers similar activity Northern Ireland, but due to the balance of investment the role is more heavily focused on Scotland than on Northern Ireland. The brief is similar for Northern Ireland, but the delivery and evidencing portfolios are much smaller, with a focus on developing more evidencing and evaluation operations in NI.
We offer true hybrid working, a mix of home working and time within our new Hubs in Edinburgh or Glasgow, with flexible working patterns to suit individual circumstances. On occasion, there will be travel, and possible overnight stays required.
An experienced senior leader, you will build relationships easily at all levels; adapting your communication skills to engage and influence people, as well as a proven record of successful working strategically with a diverse range of partners. These skills and experience are key, as you will be the primary point of connection between Sustrans’ evidencing work and senior stakeholders within Transport Scotland.
You should have demonstrable experience of delivery to deadlines and within budget, including scoping, designing and effective implementation of project work and you should have an awareness of key data sources on active and sustainable travel, allowing you to advise colleagues at a strategic level.
It would be advantageous for you to have knowledge of the political and funding context for walking and cycling initiatives in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but it is not essential.
We aim to be a truly inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, in particular from under-represented groups.
