You will be able to manage a fast-paced and varied workload, be open to learning and adaptable to rapidly changing circumstances.
Working arrangements and benefits
Post-pandemic, LSHA has adopted hybrid working and this role sits within this framework, however the Corporate Services Manager is expected to have a regular presence in our Portree offices, due to the importance of building strong working relationships across the organisation as well as guiding and mentoring the Corporate Services team, which is based in Portree. LSHA offers generous working conditions including a 35 hour working week, 40 days annual leave, pension scheme and flexible working arrangements.
