If you are looking for a role that makes a real difference to people’s lives, then this unique opportunity could be for you.

The Trustees of RSABI, the charity supporting people in Scottish agriculture, are looking for a new Chief Executive.

RSABI offers a diverse range of services, providing practical help, financial assistance, and emotional support to anyone that has worked or is currently working in farming, crofting and occupations related to Scottish agriculture.

Leading a team of ten, and supported by a group of volunteers, the Chief Executive is the principal ambassador of RSABI.

As the Chief Executive you would provide leadership and operational expertise to ensure RSABI continues to meet its strategic goals, growing RSABI’s reach and influence in order to encourage more clients to use our services, increase our income and ensure an effective range of support services are available.

Building relationships and strategic partnerships in both the public and private sector, fundraising and hands-on promotion of RSABI’s work are all key components of this very busy and dynamic role.

The governance, compliance and financial security of the Charity are paramount and under the direct stewardship of the Chief Executive, who in turn reports directly to the Board of Trustees.
