Who we are:
Scripture Union Scotland is a national charity, with around 100 staff and over 2,000 volunteers. Our vision is to see every child and young person of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus.
We have a wonderful new opening for an Assistant Schools Manager, based at Lendrick Muir near Kinross. Lendrick Muir is our largest residential centre, set in 120 acres of land, offering accommodation for groups of up to 165 and a broad range of outdoor activities. During term time we run school residentials, offering outdoor learning experiences to school pupils from all over Scotland. At weekends and during school holidays we host SU groups, youth groups, church groups and SU Holidays.
School residential programmes are designed in partnership with schools, to support their delivery of the Curriculum for Excellence through outdoor learning. We are looking for someone to come and join our schools team and be part of this exciting vision.
In conjunction with the Schools Manager, the Assistant Schools Manager will be responsible for overseeing daily operations of a thriving school residential and day ministry at Lendrick Muir and promote excellent customer service through working alongside school groups whilst on residentials and activity days.
