This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding Scotland. With 45,000 young members we are the largest charity for girls and young women in Scotland. Girlguiding Scotland has been around for over 100 years and we have much to be proud of in that rich and vibrant history, but we know that to remain exciting and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.

The person in this role will work closely with both the retail and finance teams to deliver administrative, finance and process tasks. Both teams are busy and have several points of crossover where knowledge in one area compliments the other. The person in this role will assist in meeting weekly and monthly deadlines and deliver high quality customer service. This is a part-time position, 21 hours per week, working between 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. This role is split between the finance and retail functions of the organisation.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, positive and passionate about what guiding can offer girls and young women. You will need to be articulate, diplomatic and approachable, with the ability to build good relationships quickly with a wide range of people.

You will need to be able to work under your own initiative as well as effectively managing your time and meeting deadlines. You will be proactive and will seek to learn from other staff and volunteer teams as required. The person should possess a willingness to undertake any training necessary to deliver in their role. As part of the wider Girlguiding Scotland team, the postholder will be expected to share good practice with staff and volunteers and learn from the experience of others.

While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and are committed to inclusivity.
