Who we are

withYOU is an organisation established in the 1980’s, previously part of Castle Rock Edinvar and latterly Places for People Scotland. In 2018, it separated to become its own independent charity.

Our services cover a broad range of social care areas, but have a unifying focus around ensuring those we support are able to have a safe, secure place to stay, and wherever possible are able to maintain their tenancy.

We work with people 16+. Our service models range from housing support in core and cluster, outreach services and we have a number of 24/7 supported services, including homelessness hostels.

Our services cover:

• Homelessness, Prevention and Housing Support

• Older Age Care

• Learning disability and Neurodiversity.

We work with over 1200 people each year, employ 230 staff and have an annual turnover of over £6m. Whilst our organisation is relatively unknown, we have ambitions to become a more recognised provider of high quality care and support. Alongside substantial internal transformation activity, we are also undergoing a re-branding exercise which will culminate in a new name and visual identity, alongside new external communications approaches to support our development.

Our Vision

To enable the people we support to live their best lives.

Our Mission

We provide expert services that make a positive impact for people who require support with independent living. Our people are passionate, caring professionals, thriving within our progressive learning environment.

Our Values

Respect – “We respect the choices and dignity of our people, and ensure integrity in all we do.”

Compassion – “We care deeply about one another, promote diversity and create spaces of compassion free from judgement.”

Thrive – “We learn, develop, work and grow together, supporting people to thrive.”

Who we are looking for

We are undertaking a substantial transformation and improvement programme, and are looking for several trustees who can play an integral role in the governance of our charity.

You do not need to have been a Trustee before, nor hold a senior position elsewhere. What we are looking for is people with an interest in supporting our organisation to develop through contribution of their own skill sets, a passion for ensuring high quality care and support is provided to those in our services, and a desire to play an active role in our governance.

We would particularly like to speak to individuals with a background in:

• Finance

• Social Care / Social Work / Health

• Legal.

However, if you have a background in an alternative area, but are interested in the work of withYOU and believe you could bring energy and value to our organisation, please do get in touch.

Purpose of the board and the position of Trustee

The withYOU Board provides leadership and direction to the organisation, determining strategy and ensuring that people and financial resources are available to support its delivery.

The Board promotes high standards of governance to ensure that the organisation complies with legal and regulatory requirements, both as a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The Board monitors performance ensuring that risks are assessed, monitored and managed, and that quality service provision and innovation is thought through and implemented. Working collectively, Board Members share and accept responsibility for the decisions made by the Board.

The role of Board Member is non-executive and unpaid; the Senior Leadership Team, led by the Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for operational management within a framework of controls established by the Board. In practice, the Board and CEO work in partnership to develop innovative approaches to business development and delivery and to safeguard the organisation’s future.

As part of this journey, we will collaborate and co-produce with the people we support, updated organisational values and we anticipate a re-brand and a new organisation name.

About the role

As Head of Services, you will join our new Senior Management Team and lead our team of talented, hard working Service Managers. The Head of Services role is initially for a 6 month period, and may be extended subject to operational plans and funding. As part of the responsibilities of the role, you will support the SMT and Board to develop staffing restructuring plans for services, to ensure we support our staff and deliver excellent quality care.

Ideally you will have an entrepreneurial, development mindset and take others with you on a journey of success.

Why Apply

Although this is a fixed term contract, we believe this is an opportunity that would make a significant contribution to someone’s learning and career development. There is also the opportunity for this to be extended or made permanent, depending on the outcome of the change activities.

We’re looking for someone who is motivated by change and loves a challenge, who is kind, respectful and genuinely wants to support others on a journey of transformation.

In return, you will receive excellent support from a new and equally motivated Senior Management Team and Board, you will be supported to develop and entitled to the following benefits:

  • 6% pension contribution from the start of your employment (and not after three months)
  • 2 x salary death in service benefit
