Haemophilia Scotland invites applications from enthusiastic individuals for the position of Financial Wellbeing Officer, an exciting new role within our organisation. This newly created position seeks an energetic and compassionate professional to help support Haemophilia Scotland members and their families, addressing the financial challenges and risks contributing to vulnerability. The successful candidate will play a crucial role in enhancing economic stability, fostering resilience, and contributing to the overall health and wellbeing of our community.
As a small charity, our work is both diverse and gratifying, presenting unique challenges that require innovative solutions. We are seeking a candidate with a minimum of two years' experience in delivering expert advice on welfare rights, including appeals tribunals. The ideal candidate will possess strong community engagement and interpersonal skills, demonstrating a particular sensitivity and empathy for individuals managing long-term health conditions. Additionally, the preferred candidate will bring knowledge and experience in developing and presenting training workshops focused on financial wellbeing and other health-related topics.
If you are a dedicated professional with a passion for making a positive impact, we invite you to join our team and contribute to the meaningful work we do at Haemophilia Scotland.
Haemophilia Scotland seeks to support and represent those with inherited bleeding disorders including those with Haemophilia, Von Willebrands and similar conditions. We wish to appoint an enthusiastic, empathetic and flexible part-time Director with financial acumen. As a natural leader you will take forward key areas of the charity’s work on our behalf.
As a small charity work is varied and rewarding with its challenges. We need someone who will enhance the public profile of Haemophilia Scotland and develop and maintain new/existing alliances with the Scottish Government, the pharmaceutical industry and health professionals. You will need to underpin this with effective organisational and leadership skills, financial acumen and success in fundraising. Fundraising is a critical part of the role, as we rely heavily on grant aid and donations from our members. We aspire to a more stable financial base and will look to our new Director to be pivotal in the achievement of this. We believe that our members are central to all we do, and we will look to the new Director to enhance our established engagement arrangements. As we move back to some level of normality after the Covid-19 pandemic, we aim to re-energise our face-to-face contact with our members.
The role is based on 17.5 hours per week which can be worked flexibly. Some weekend evening work may be required, but not too often. Most of our Board meetings are held via Zoom as our trustees are spread across Scotland. Our systems allow staff to operate flexibly from home or office.
