They have an exciting recruitment opening for Scotland and are looking to recruit a Director. Aspen People are leading the search and recruitment process and are well placed having worked on a number of senior executive appointments for Scotland’s third sector.

We are looking for someone with excellent leadership skills and first-class communication skills to be the face of British Heart Foundation (BHF) in Scotland and to convene and coordinate our Scotland Leadership team.

You will work across our diverse and ambitious organisation, including managing the BHF’s policy and advocacy activity in Scotland. As a key member of our team you will be responsible for seeking opportunities to raise BHF presence and campaigns in line with our strategy and plans.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record in leadership and management, preferably in a similar environment and will be a driven individual, able to lead cross-organisational projects within a matrix organisation.

We need someone who has experience of representing an organisation to senior external stakeholders, including Government and the media, and who has strong influencing and negotiating skills. A good understanding of the Scottish health care, policy or research sectors is a must.

Amy Gordon, Consultant at Aspen People leading the recruitment campaign commented:

“This is a unique and exciting opportunity for those working within the Scottish Health Care, Policy and / or Research sectors to become part of this important National charity. With 72 shops and stores in Scotland their commercial operations are significant and this, along with other fundraising, helps to raise funds for the 650,000 people living in Scotland with cardiovascular disease today. We’re keen to speak to candidates who feel they can really be part of this charity and at the front of their Scottish based operation”.
