Salary: Circa £55,000
Full-time and permanent (flexible hours)
Location: Edinburgh/Glasgow/home working
Deadline: Sunday 16th January
LGBT Health and Wellbeing promotes the health, wellbeing, and equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) adults in Scotland. It provides support, services, and information to improve mental and emotional wellbeing, reduce social isolation and promote community inclusion.
LGBT Health’s strategic objectives, as outlined in the Strategic Plan, are to:
- Build capacity to achieve better health and wellbeing within the LGBT community
- Develop the ability of services to respond to the needs of LGBT individuals
- Build collaborative partnerships
- Build a positive, proactive organisation.
As well as providing support programmes for LGBT people, the organisation directly contributes its expertise on LGBT issues to a wide range of individuals and organisations.
It is increasingly recognised as a ‘go to’ organisation about LGBT issues, especially around older LGBT people, trans wellbeing, mental health and more recently LGBT asylum seekers and refugees. The charity works tirelessly to raise awareness of the lived experiences, needs, barriers and inequalities LGBT adults experience, by providing a strong, informed, and credible voice for the interests of LGBT people.
This is a fantastic and rare opportunity to lead the organisation by becoming its next Chief Executive. You need not necessarily be an existing Lead Officer but will need to have senior leadership experience in a service delivery / community support organisation. We are interested in hearing from candidates out with the third sector, but you must have an understanding of it and the unique funding environment in which it operates as income generation is a key requirement of this role. In addition, you will need a deep knowledge, if not lived experience, of the LGBT community and the multiple and complex issues our communities face. If you have fierce determination to improve their lives, tenacity, resilience, and the strategic acumen to take this organisation to the next level, we want to hear from you.
