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.
Office Manager / EA – We recently engaged the NCVO to conduct a governance health check on the charity to give us some insights into areas we could improve on. One of their next steps was for us to consider taking on an Executive Assistant to help the Chief Executive and Trustees keep on top of the governance admin. We think this would probably be a part-time position based at the office in King’s Lynn and as well as helping with the above would also include some general administrative duties. We embrace technology so someone with excellent Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook essential, Sharepoint, Teams preferred) and great organisational skills (have you tried pinning down a group of busy Trustees for a meeting before?!) would be required. This is still in the pipeline but if you think you have the experience and skills to excel in this role why not get a head start and let us know.
Merch Brand Manager – 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 – a role which would work very closely with the Head of Support and provide a first point of contact for families. Guiding them on their journey, supporting them every step of the way and utilising the latest technology to provide remote assistance to the hundreds of bereaved families spread across the UK. We see this as a role based at our office in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.
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.
Fundraising Roles – As the charity’s Assistance Programmes for bereaved military families grow, so too does the need for additional funds to cover the costs of running them. It’s more than likely that we will need to add additional fundraising roles in the next 12 months or so to help generate more income. If you’re an experienced fundraiser with a successful track record or, if you have a background where you think the skills you’ve acquired would be transferable to the charity sector why not get in touch. Make sure you tell us why you think you would add value to the charity – we’re only looking for those at the top of their game and really up for the challenge. Important note: Whilst we champion the use of new technology we also love a good old fashioned team and for this reason our preference is for team members to work closely together at our HQ in Norfolk.
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.
