Role

Responsible To: Chairperson of Board of Directors

Revive MS Support is a visionary charity that has championed bespoke health and social care for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis since its inception in 1984. We are Scotland’s leading provider of support for people living with MS and their families. As a Centre of Excellence, we aim to be the main driver of new and improved services setting new standards for MS care across Scotland so that our clients’ resilience and wellbeing are maximised.

We are seeking to appoint a CEO who will lead our organisation in accordance with our values to effect positive change. Our person-centred approach has resulted in significant growth over the years, both in the services provided and the demand for support, and we now seek a CEO who can lead the organisation to achieve the next level of our strategic objectives.

You will be a thoughtful and empowering leader whose decision-making is based on how best to ensure the wellbeing of the people we help. Bringing significant management experience, you will be directly responsible for day-to-day operations of the charity as well as inspiring, engaging, and empowering the already brilliant, established team.

As someone with experience operating at a very senior level, you will be adept at forming positive relationships with a range of stakeholders including volunteers, clients, funders, statutory bodies, civil servants, and politicians.

You will be a strategic thinker with an understanding of how to secure funding in line with the strategy and vision of statutory bodies as well as explore other income opportunities that enable us to provide a better service to the people we support while improving our internal capability and employee experience. Support to the individual will be of the utmost importance to you, and you will confidently investigate new technologies and approaches that will allow us to maintain our high standards. A motivational communicator, you will be as comfortable inspiring colleagues to live our organisational values – and ensuring that these values underpin everything we do – as you are engaging externally with a variety of stakeholders, promoting the person-centred support model, and providing consultancy when required.

We are a model organisation, operating a bespoke Centre in Glasgow which provides multiple forms of clinical therapy and support under one roof. Our specialist staff team works in partnership with other organisations across health and social care to deliver a holistic person-centred approach for our clients and their families.

If you have the leadership skills, initiative, and compassion to take Revive MS Support on the next part of our journey as we strive to improve the lives of people affected by MS, we’d love to hear from you.
