Director (Part-time)

  • Part-time 17.5 hours p/w
  • Salary circa £40,000 (pro-rata)
  • Edinburgh Office/Home base
  • Closing Friday, 19th November

Haemophilia Scotland seeks to support and represent those with inherited bleeding disorders including those with Haemophilia, Von Willebrands and similar conditions.  We wish to appoint an enthusiastic, empathetic and flexible part-time Director with financial acumen. As a natural leader you will take forward key areas of the charity’s work on our behalf. 

As a small charity work is varied and rewarding with its challenges.  We need someone who will enhance the public profile of Haemophilia Scotland and develop and maintain new/existing alliances with the Scottish Government, the pharmaceutical industry and health professionals.  You will need to underpin this with effective organisational and leadership skills, financial acumen and success in fundraising.  Fundraising is a critical part of the role, as we rely heavily on grant aid and donations from our members.  We aspire to a more stable financial base and will look to our new Director to be pivotal in the achievement of this.  We believe that our members are central to all we do, and we will look to the new Director to enhance our established engagement arrangements.  As we move back to some level of normality after the Covid-19 pandemic, we aim to re-energise our face-to-face contact with our members.

The role is based on 17.5 hours per week which can be worked flexibly.  Some weekend evening work may be required, but not too often.  Most of our Board meetings are held via Zoom as our trustees are spread across Scotland. Our systems allow staff to operate flexibly from home or office.
