SU Scotland is a national charity, with around 100 staff and over 2,000 volunteers. Our vision is to see the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus. In addition to our work in schools, with churches and in SU holidays, we run two residential activity centres, Lendrick Muir (near Kinross) and Alltnacriche (near Aviemore) and are about to launch a third Gowanbank in Ayrshire.

Lendrick Muir is our largest facility, a stunning mansion house set in 120 acres of land, offering accommodation for groups of up 160 and a unique mix of activities to experience. Primarily focussed on hosting children and young people, the centre welcomes groups of all sizes from schools, churches, youth organisations and other agencies, as well as hosting SU Holidays and the Soul Survivor Scotland festival.

Building on outstanding growth in recent years, this role offers a rewarding opportunity to bring leadership to the centre, supporting a talented team of over 30 staff and volunteers who help make the ministry happen, and see it grow to the next level.

Candidates should be mature Christians able to support the spiritual leadership of a large team of staff and volunteers. Candidates should also possess sound business and communication skills. You will be an excellent team player, motivated self-starter and work well under pressure.

For this post, it is important that you are committed to SU Scotland’s ethos, working principles and vision and are able to demonstrate this through your commitment and motivation. It is also an Occupational Requirement (Equality Act - part 1, schedule 9), that the post-holder is a committed Christian.

The successful applicant will be required to become a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Scheme and the appointment will be subject to a satisfactory PVG Scheme Disclosure.
