Thank you for your interest in the position of Share Scotland’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Share has achieved much in the 37 years since it was established by a community of like-minded individuals coming together with the common purpose of building a positive future for their sons and daughters. Their vision was a future where their child’s talents and abilities would eclipse the challenges of disability and they would be supported to reach their full potential. Share Scotland is looking for an inspiring individual to lead us on the next leg of our journey.
The first 25 years of Share’s remarkable journey is documented in our anniversary book entitled ‘I Love My Wee Hoose’.
Share provides practical care and support to adults with significant learning and physical disabilities, within their own homes in the community.
By families, for families has been a motto that has served Share well over the years. We never forget the role and needs of family in the work that we do. This remains at the heart of our ethos.
Share has evolved into a trusted and valued care provider, with a sector-leading reputation for providing the highest quality of care and support. This is externally endorsed by bodies such as the Care inspectorate, which has regularly awarded Share maximum 6-star quality gradings.
Share greatly values its committed and talented workforce, and holds the Investor in People Silver award, in recognition of our positive employment practices.
With an annual turnover of £4.5 million and a workforce of 170 employees operating across the Central Belt of Scotland, Share has never sought to be the biggest but the best in the sector.
We recognise that to build and maintain such a reputation, it is vital that we grow and develop. This growth means both in size and in the way in which we support people, their families, and our team of employees. We need to expand our knowledge and skills as well as extending this expertise to others who would commission the services that we provide.
Share has developed a 3-year Business strategy charting our plans for the future; how we plan to build on the progressive work that has taken place in recent years.
As we move out of lockdown, after what has been a difficult but inspiring year, the future looks exciting. We want an operationally hands-on, visible leader to inspire the Board and workforce and put Share in the forefront of a rapidly evolving care sector. If you have excellent communication and leadership skills, a commitment to playing an integral role in Share achieving its ambitions, and the appropriate qualifications, experience and knowledge, we would love to hear from you.
Good luck with your application.
