That’s the promise that Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland makes to people living with these conditions.

It’s vision: "Welcome to a Scotland where people with our conditions can live their lives well. Full lives, with the right support, at the right time and in the right place. A place where you can shape your future and live the life you want to lead." This is one of Scotland’s foremost charities dealing with Scotland’s biggest killers.

It focuses on 4 key goals which any employee would be proud of:

• We will place our focus on addressing the unmet needs of people with our conditions - social, emotional, and physical - across all Scotland’s communities.

• We will be led by our people: people with lived experience of our conditions, their families & carers, friends, colleagues and healthcare professionals.

• We will secure the funding required to deliver via a diverse income portfolio that is consistent with our values and ethical approach.

• We will be effective and accountable in all that we do.

You will be expected to have brought in grants to the value of at least £20,000.
