Can you lead a thriving community organisation to bring care, love and laughter to local peoples’ lives?

We’re seeking an inspirational leader with strong organisational skills, solid financial management experience, and a social or health care background, to provide day to day management and administration of The Open Door, a local charity promoting inclusion in South Edinburgh.

About The Open Door

We support vulnerable older people to have fun with friends, and remain as active and independent as possible, through our social clubs and registered day care services. We provide a welcoming space for people who may be feeling lonely or isolated to chat and linger over a hot drink or light lunch in our community cafe. We enable people of diverse ages, abilities and backgrounds to contribute to their local community through volunteering in our day care services, community café and other projects.

We are proud of reputation for delivering high quality care and support services. We were awarded “Grade 5 – Very Good” for all categories in our last inspection by the Care Inspectorate.

We were founded in 1982 by a retired nurse, Peggy Hunter, and are well-supported by the community with over 50 individuals volunteering with The Open Door every fortnight.
