Milltown Community is looking for an ambitious General Manager who is interested in embarking on a career journey towards becoming the charity’s Chief Executive Officer.

In Partnership with Third Sector Solutions Scotland, we will provide up to 18 months of individual coaching and mentoring to develop the Chief Executive we need to grow and develop our health & social care support services, both Support at Home and Supported Learning, Skills Development and Employability.

Milltown Community is a small, independent and forward looking charity which has adapted, changed and is now thriving in its vision to enable neurodiverse adults and those with learning challenges to be the best they can be, to achieve and to be enabled rather than disabled. Our current residential community of 7 amazing tenants living in two houses, is supplemented each day by up to 20 workers and learners who are developing land based and artisan craft skills at our rural location in Arbuthnott in the south of Aberdeenshire. We are a registered ASDAN qualifications centre offering a combination of short courses and Employability programmes all from our productive small holding and workshops on site.

So, we need to find someone who sees our potential, who has experience in managing healthy & social care services as a ‘registered manager’, who understands outcomes based commissioning and has managed contract service provision. But that someone also needs to have a passion for and understand of why learning & skills development opportunities are so important to enabling our learners to live as independently as possible and to make a valuable contribution within our communities.

If you are looking for the next step up on your career journey or struggling to get the experience and coaching necessary to make that next step, this might well be the role for you. The package we are proposing is unique in that it combines operational management responsibility with a learning and development programme which will be led by a team of the most experienced third sector professionals and senior managers in Scotland.
