Senior Manager

  • Full time
  • £32,004
  • Perth with travel across Perth and Kinross
  • Closing 21st January 2022

  • Advertised from 21st December 2021

Are you passionate about supporting young people facing barriers to their dreams and ambitions? Do you want to be part of a team committed to helping young people feel confident and hopeful about their future? Do you want to take a lead role in helping us expand and reach out to many more? Do you have the depth, and breadth of experience we need? We are looking for a Senior Manager to lead our expansion. Are you interested?

This year is our 30th Anniversary. We are a charity with an excellent reputation, based in two special locations. Our Office is situated within the beautiful grounds of the Gannochy Trust and much of our outdoor work is experienced within the unique environment of Megginch Castle Estate. Perthshire provides a wealth of amazing places for our varied work.

We have a small team of 4 highly dedicated staff, soon to increase, and we are committed to helping young people overcome whatever barriers they face and to help them believe in themselves, have ambitions, and fulfil their potential.

Our face to face work is increasing all the time as the impact of our work within “The Starfish Way” becomes more widely known. We are now at the point of significant expansion and are looking for a Senior Manager to lead the team and reach out to even greater numbers of young people. This new role is to help us move to that next milestone in our development and to ensure the sustainability and high quality of our work.

We seek someone who will share our vision, who will be passionate about the work we do, who is experienced, and who works towards the highest standards. Our Senior Manager needs to fit within the ethos of our team, be compassionate towards others, considerate, and get the job done. Good communication and positive and trusting working relationships are at the heart of the way we try to work.

This post is a full time post. The starting salary will be £32004 per annum. Pay reviews are normally held annually in March.

The post is guaranteed for 1 year though we expect funding to continue thereafter and seek continuity in this essential role.

The successful candidate(s), (it is open to job share), will be able to work from home for some of the time though we believe personal relationships are crucial, involving both face to face meetings with our staff, our Trustees, our stakeholders, and our young people. Consequently, the job cannot be undertaken virtually.

We look forward to hearing from you.
