BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with The Good Shepherd Centre in their search for a Director.

"I will look back on here as the place that changed my life. “ Young person.

“I was impressed with the commitment, passion and determination of the Good Shepherd staff to improve the chances of young people who came into their care”- John Swinney, Depute First Minister.

The Good Shepherd Centre in Bishopton (just outside Glasgow) is a sector leading service comprising an 18 bedded secure unit, close support and transition services. It is now looking for a new and exceptional Director to run the organisation and lead the strategic development of the Centre and the facilities it offers.

This role is pivotal to helping the Centre maintain its excellent reputation and achieve its ambitions with the key task to ensure implementation of the ‘Masterplan’ approved by the Board of Trustees.

This is a rare opportunity for someone to lead a service which helps some of the most vulnerable and troubled young people across the UK. You need not necessarily come from a similar background but you will need to have strong leadership and business/financial acumen as well as a creative and innovative approach.

You will need to be fully committed to excellence and the values which drive the organisation while placing the welfare and needs of the young people at the centre of everything you do.

If you have a strong empathy with this area of practice and believe in a person-centred approach being critical to effective service development and delivery. If you value integrity, compassion and teamwork and want to work in an inclusive and innovative environment, then this could be the next career challenge for you. In return, you will lead an expert and dedicated team of staff and be offered an attractive benefits package.
