We are looking to recruit an exciting new post for our Children’s Wellbeing Services.

Are you a motivated individual who can support the recruitment of our Wellbeing and Resilience programme volunteers, and to support the administrative requirements of the staff team delivering the programme. Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity have developed a new and exciting project which supports the wellbeing and resilience of children and young people who are struggling with their mental health. This project will support the whole family (child, parents/guardian, siblings, grandparents etc.) through these challenging times, by offering support and advice. We will pilot this programme over a two year period in two locations. The first will be rural, East Lothian based and the second urban, within Edinburgh City. We are looking for someone who is educated to HND level or with equivalent experience in working with volunteers or admin support. This is a demanding role within a fun and fast paced organisation. The right candidate will be passionate about working for a children’s and young people’s healthcare charity and possess the drive and skills to balance a varied workload and achieve objectives.
