We are recruiting for an exceptional Chief Executive Officer to lead JustRight Scotland - Scotland’s legal centre for justice and human rights. This is an exciting opportunity to lead Scotland’s most innovative legal charity and to have a lasting impact on changing lives, ensuring that we live in a just and fair society.

At JRS, we use the law to defend and extend people’s rights. We provide advice and representation directly to individuals – by appointment, as well as through legal surgeries and legal helplines. We engage in policy and influencing work by contributing evidence from our legal expertise and the lived experience of people impacted by the issues we work on. We build innovative collaborations, and deliver public legal education, professional training and outreach. We believe in sharing our skills, and what we learn, with others along the way.

Transformation has framed the JRS journey since we were established in 2017. We are now looking for an experienced leader who shares our vision and values, to head our leadership team and develop and deliver a vision for the future.

You will be a skilled financial and operational manager, who is comfortable leading change to help our organisation stay agile in an ever-changing environment, and a confident communicator – able to communicate that vision to the public, media, government and our stakeholders in a credible and compelling way – to help us protect what we’ve built and take forward new opportunities.
