Role

We are looking for a new Director.

The Scottish Flood Forum (SFF) is recruiting a Director to develop and deliver our vision. This person will be an experienced people and project manager, with sound judgement, diplomacy skills and a passion for helping people.

If you’re not someone like that, read no further, we’re not for you. If you are, read on!

We are a small, independent but well-supported charitable organisation that advises and assists those at risk of, or who have suffered from, flooding. We help individuals and communities to prepare for, and recover from, its short and long term impacts, operating in partnership with local and national partners to tackle flooding together.

After over five years of outstanding work, our current Director is moving to another exciting flooding role. We want to attract a new leader, with strong, management, advocacy and communication skills to work with our staff, Trustees and partners for the next part of the journey to make our vision a reality.

This is no ordinary or 9-5 job. Of-course you will need to be a strategic and experienced manager, ideally familiar with governmental bodies, and used to delivering good governance and compliance (finance, policies, H&S etc.) as you’ll need to ensure the charity is well run. But it’s also exciting, challenging and varied, no one day is the same as the next. You’d be working in a stimulating area, at a local and national level, with all sorts of interesting people, often in fascinating places. Occasionally there’d be weekend or evening commitments but you’re able to work properly flexible hours.
