Sacro is a social justice charity working to improve people’s lives and make positive change in justice, public protection, community safety, social care, and housing. We work all over Scotland and deliver services to vulnerable people commissioned by local authorities or funded by grants.

We have a business head and a social heart, and we want our work to be as efficient and effective as possible for the people we work with and for our partners and commissioners.

We are looking for an experienced leader to support our teams in business development, project and performance management. You will also project manage developments, as part of our Leadership Team.

You should have a proven track record in business development and project management with excellent analytical skills and the ability to present a business case and performance information. You should be a forward thinker and understand the third sector environment.

We will offer learning and development, progression and qualifications with the opportunity for growth and development.

We welcome applications from individuals who share Sacro’s aims and values and want to engage with those we support to help them move on to a more secure, settled and fulfilling life and value diversity from all sections of the community.
