We are looking for a relational, child-centred, and motivated individual to be part of the charity, helping to drive forward the development and maintenance of new and existing office and well-being spaces.

This is a new post and an exciting opportunity for the right individual; to a large extent it is up to you to shape the role.

In the role of Head of Property, you will work across the whole of the charity working with colleagues to provide excellent, flexible, trauma informed and child friendly spaces. We put children at the heart of what we do; our spaces must also reflect that ethos.

You must have a relevant qualification and previous experience; however, this is more about you and the qualities that you bring to the role.

Our spaces are located across many areas of Scotland and the post may require working out with normal office hours and will potentially involve travel and overnight stays. However, Children 1st is flexible in its attitude about how the objectives are achieved as required by the role and you will enjoy a generous annual leave entitlement.

This is a permanent post of up to 35 hours per week, we welcome applications from candidates who feel passionate about the role and require some flexibility and can work a minimum of 21 hours per week.

Please note that this post will require travel throughout Scotland, therefore any base is negotiable.
