Chief Executive

Milltown Community is a calm and positive community set in the beautiful Mearns countryside. It is a supportive environment where neuro diverse adults can live and work as independently as possible, have aspirations, be ambitious, and live life to the fullest. The community of tenants, day workers, trainees, volunteers and support staff, live and work surrounded by the natural world in rural south Aberdeenshire. Some of the tenants have lived at the community for all of their adult lives. Currently the community is supporting seven residential tenants and up to ten day workers who attend the workshop facility, with the intention to increase these numbers.

You will join the community at an exciting time following a period of positive change, with the very recent successful award of a new two year Care at Home contract worth almost £1m. A comprehensive review had led to a new Board being appointed and creation of the new Chief Executive role.

The community is growing and developing new projects, initiative and workstreams. Exciting new projects are being planned including; a tool repair workshop for garden and small agricultural tools and machinery, and a productive market garden supplying local communities and restaurants.

You don’t need to be a Chief Executive already. This is an opportunity for someone who is ready to make the step up to lead an organisation. You’ll be a confident and inspiring manager with experience of working for a charity that provides a health and social care service, ideally within a residential care setting and with experience of working with neuro diverse adults.

This is a genuine opportunity for someone to take on their first charity Chief Executive role. The role will require strategic clarity, inspiring leadership, strong and sensitive management, investment in people and technology, setting and achieving very high standards and building a cohesive, values driven and uplifting culture. You will be supported by retained expert Interim Managers for the first three months to help the new postholder settle into the role and new Board members are also being recruited with skills that can support this appointment.

On offer is a competitive salary, flexible working, onsite parking, access to The WEL Programme, 32 days leave including public holidays, a NEST Pension scheme and a company contribution to personal learning and development.
