SallyAnn Kelly,
Chief Executive


My name is SallyAnn Kelly and I have worked in Social Work and Social Care for my entire working life across public and third sector organisations. I am 100% committed to working as hard as possible to try and improve the life chances of some of the most disadvantaged children and young people in our society. Too many children in Scotland don’t have real chances to make the most of education and schooling or to develop into confident adults who can gain employment and pursue careers or start businesses of their own. There are many children whose families are unable to fully support their development and those children desperately need role models and people who will love, care and support them. Aberlour is there for them.

Aberlour provides support to children and young people to overcome challenges such as disabilities, living in and leaving care and being resilient to the impact of drugs and alcohol. I and my Aberlour staff team are all passionate about developing services that meet the needs of children and young people and are determined that we improve the life chances of young people.

If you can be passionate about our goal and can demonstrate a commitment to our values base by: demonstrating a respectful person-centred approach to your work and the people you come into contact with; demonstrating integrity throughout all your working practices; being committed to support your staff; being innovative in your thinking in how to support children and families; and challenge yourself and others to be the best we can for Scotland’s young people, then I have two fantastic jobs to tell you about.

Aberlour is looking for a Director of Finance and a Director of Marketing and Fundraising. Both positions are part of our Senior Leadership Team and will report directly to me. Both roles will also report to the Board of Directors and will build strong relationships throughout the organisation, both within their own teams and across the departments. Aberlour is positive about the benefit of cross functional team working so it is crucial that all leaders in the organisation are leaders for all as well as their own directorates.

This microsite should provide you with all the details that you need to be able to consider Aberlour as your future employer. However if you need any further information please contact Catriona Mackie at Aspen on 0141 212 7555 in the first instance.

I have been with Aberlour just over two years now and it is the best job I have ever had! I know I am leading and am part of an organisation that will grow over the next few years in a really difficult economic climate. I know this because I am confident that we are providing the right person-centred, personalised solutions for children, families and young people that will improve their lives.

If you also want the best job you will ever have, then I am waiting to see your application.
