About the role:
This is an important role in which you’ll lead BSLM as it continues to grow and develop. The organisation has grown rapidly in the four years since establishment and it now requires a step change in management to consolidate this growth and to drive the organisation forward.
The Executive Director will be expected to work with the Chair and Board of Trustees, taking management oversight of the organisation’s activities, to ensure appropriate governance of the charity’s activities is maintained.
An important aspect of the role will be the further development and strengthening of the organisation’s infrastructure, particularly staffing, to enable the timely delivery of the organisation’s vision and mission.
BSLM is looking for an individual with a proven track record at senior management level in a charity or private sector organisation. Strategic planning ability will be essential to drive development of the organisation forward.
Key skills in financial management, human resources, networking and communication are essential for this role.
BSLM is a UK charity registered with OSCR and has an office in Haddington, East Lothian. It is committed to the Lifestyle Medicine approach in preventing, managing and reversing lifestyle related diseases which represent about 80% of diseases in the UK. We are committed to nurturing our membership, expanding our educational offerings and bringing influence to bear at individual, community, national and global level.
One of the benefits of working in a small charity as a key member of a friendly team is that the role can be shaped and developed further according to the interests and skills of the successful candidate. Candidates should therefore be able to demonstrate they are entrepreneurial self-starters who would relish this opportunity.

drives sales for a commercial organisation.
The role reports to the Chief Executive. You will be articulate, have strong influencing skills and
proven stakeholder management skills to work with all levels of staff in the organisation, our board
of directors, and external partners. This is a senior role in an organisation with a strong Christian
ethos, therefore there is an occupational requirement that the post holder is a practising Christian.
