Here you’ll find the details of any positions within the team we are currently recruiting for plus some possible future roles which are in planning.
We have no currently open roles but we have lots of plans and below you’ll find a few of the ideas we’re considering. All roles unless otherwise stated are based at Scotty HQ in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. Currently most personnel are working from home due to COVID-19 restrictions.
We have a long term mission to support the children of our heroes and we’re going to need the best talent out there to achieve it. We’re creating an environment to thrive in and a charity to be proud of. We believe in a new way of delivering support to those who need it and a new way of engaging our supporters. It’s important work but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun.
Our Culture: Scotty’s is a unique place to work. We’re small which means you can have a huge impact but that also means we need to be incredibly self-motivated. Have a read of our Culture Code here. We also value a good work / life balance so we’re currently reviewing all our team benefits. We’ll update them here soon but you can expect unlimited holiday entitlement, flex hours, free fruit and Freedom Friday!
Our future Growth & upcoming roles…
We have a clear vision for the future of Scotty’s Little Soldiers and the support we need to provide to bereaved Forces families. We know the tools and resources that we will need in order to achieve this vision and in many cases we already know the type of people and the roles within the charity that we help us get there.
Below are some of the roles we are already thinking about but aren’t quite ready to recruit for yet. Maybe the timing isn’t quite right or the funding needs to be secured. There are no time frames for these roles and some may never transpire, but if you feel that there is something here which you could make your own, feel free to send us your CV and a covering note and, if it’s OK with you, we’ll keep your details on file and let you know if our plans progress.
You can also send your CV through if you believe strongly that you can add value to our team but in a different role to those mentioned on this page. Make sure to include a covering letter that tells us exactly how you think you can add that value.
Send your CV and Covering Letter to email@example.com.
Merch Brand/E-Commerce – we sell charity merchandise to help raise additional funds which contribute towards our running costs. As well as a general charity and performance ranges we recently launched the Fear Naught fashion range which was an immediate hit. As these ranges continue to grow we may be looking for someone to help manage our merch. You would have profit and loss accountability for our Merchandise sales and responsibility for brand marketing, customer service and procurement.
Family Support Worker – demand for our services has increased greatly over the past year and it’s likely our Families Team will need to grow to reflect that. We don’t quite know what that will look like right now but it’s quite likely we’ll need some additional Family Support in the near future. If that sounds like you why not get a head start and send your CV and covering letter over?
Project Manager – we have an exciting national project in the pipeline which will transfer the way the UK looks after bereaved Forces children. If successful with our funding bids we will be looking for a Project Manager to help implement the new project across the UK in early 2020. This would be a very hands on management role with responsibility for rolling the project out across the UK over a two year period.
Marketing Roles – Digital marketing, brand management, SEO content, web development, CRM Management, graphic design, content creation – we could go on and on. These are all roles which we think are the future of Supporter engagement for charities. This will be a real growth area for Scotty’s over the next couple of years. If you want to join a team which values creativity whilst helping those less fortunate – get in touch.
Impact and Evidence – Our work is always driven by the need of bereaved Service families so the more we can understand the effects bereavement has on young people the better we can shape our services. We’d love to bring in a team member dedicated to understanding these needs by producing evidence-based research which helps us to develop new support services and also to measure the impact of the work we do.
Grants & Trusts – Grant funding has been vital for us during the COVID-19 outbreak and will continue to be so. We’ll probably be looking for someone to help us grow this income stream next year. It may be a full time role but could also potentially suit someone looking for part time hours. You’ll need to have extremely high attention to detail and excellent written communication skills. There will be an element of research (finding new trusts whose giving criteria aligns with our mission) and the management of approved grants (most require updates on the impact of their grant). You don’t need to have previous experience but you’d need to be able to prove to us why you think you could do this well.
Salesforce developer – Are you local to our King’s Lynn HQ and an expert in Salesforce? We’d definitely love to hear from you if so. Get in touch.
