Scottish Mentoring Network is a membership organisation and Scotland’s primary resource for information, advice and support on all aspects of mentoring within Scotland. Our local and thematic networks cover all of Scotland and our 200 member projects are engaged with a wide range of service users.
Our small central team requires the support of an office all rounder. Apart from good I.T.skills and experience of Microsoft Office, applicants should have the ability to learn a straightforward Xero accounting system and flexibility to help in other areas such as updating the web site, maintaining databases, communicating with members and, fielding general enquiries.
Normal hours of work are 9.00 A.M. to 5 P.M. Monday to Friday and our office is located in the centre of Glasgow easily reached by public transport. We are a friendly and professional organisation looking for someone with the personality and experience which matches our ethos.
Scottish Mentoring Network is a national membership-based intermediary organisation that supports mentoring projects across Scotland, ensuring high quality service delivery. SMN’s primary source of funding is the Scottish Government and we currently have funding in place until 2020.
At an exciting time in the development of the organisation, we are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and experienced leader to be our Chief Executive who will lead our strategic development in response to members identified requirements, derived from regularly gathered feedback and a recently commissioned external evaluation.
Our new Chief Executive will report directly to the Board and provide support to a small staff team who have a big impact on mentoring in Scotland.
The successful applicant will be a strategic leader with excellent communication and IT skills and the ability to prepare financial reports and budgets. She/he will be responsible for management and performance within strategic and accountability frameworks agreed with the Board and will support Good Governance.
