At Aberlour Options Lothian we offer a safe, homely environment for a child to come and stay for a short break that gives their families a rest from their caring role. During that break, children enjoy a range of fun activities and experiences with our staff who specialise in taking care of children with disabilities. Our service is very much a ‘home from home’ for the children who stay with us. We also have a Care at Home service that supports children and young people in the community to access activities.

Are you an experienced administrator, comfortable with financial information and developing spreadsheets? If so we want to hear from you. We need someone to help develop this vital service and ensure its ongoing success for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children.

You will support the service with general and financial administrative tasks, as well as being the first point of contact for enquiries via phone and email. You will have administrative experience gained through working within a busy office or social care environment. You will be experienced working with Microsoft Office packages including Excel and be able to create spreadsheets and deal with numerical information. You will have excellent communication and organisational skills.

You will ideally have a relevant professional qualification at SCQF level 7 or equivalent experience.
