About Eczema Outreach Support

Eczema Outreach Support (EOS) is a UK-wide charity supporting children and young people with eczema and their families. Originally set up in Scotland in 2011, we now have over 4,000 member families living across the UK.

At EOS, we want every child with eczema to thrive. We believe that having eczema should not – and will not - stop children's ambitions and dreams. By providing direct practical advice and emotional support to whole families, we empower young people to take back control of their health and break isolation. Our goal is for every child with eczema to know they are not alone.

We deliver a range of activities including one-to-one support via phone & email, we deliver face-to-face events and online activities, such as our virtual High Five Club for kids aged 3-10 and tailored support for teenagers. We also work directly with schools, as well as creating and sharing informative social media content on eczema. We also support families on a wider scale by inputting into eczema research, taking part in clinical networks and raising awareness of the impact of the condition on families’ lives. Our work is always guided by the needs of our members.

We are a small team making a big impact and we can only achieve this by valuing and supporting our people to deliver great work. Recognising the individual strengths of our team and being a flexible and supportive employer are key to our success.

About the Role

Our Business Support Officer will provide vital support across a range of areas including finance, administration and IT so EOS can deliver high quality support to families. You would be the main office contact for EOS which would include periods of lone working. This is a diverse and interesting opportunity to bring your organisational and problem-solving skills and play a key role in our small and passionate team.

Top job! Chief Executive Officer

  • Part time
  • £43,000 – £50,000 pro-rata
  • Home working with regular monthly visits to the office in Linlithgow
  • Closing 28th February 2023

We have an exciting opportunity to join Eczema Outreach Support (EOS) as its new Chief Executive Officer.

EOS is a UK-wide charity supporting children and young people with eczema and their families. Originally set up in Scotland in 2011, they now support over 3,500 member families living across the UK.

There is no clear cause of eczema, yet it affects 1 in 5 children in the UK, with severe cases often having devastating results. A child with eczema can spend hours every day treating their inflamed skin, only to face unbearable itching and uncomfortable flare- ups. There are endless sleepless nights, matched with unbearable days unable to concentrate, all compounded by the overwhelming isolation: being singled out just for looking different. Eczema Outreach Support want every child and young person with eczema to thrive and are looking for a new Chief Executive Officer to lead their small and impactful team to realise this ambition.

If you share the charity’s commitment to children with eczema and their families and are a confident, inclusive and compassionate leader with the skills we are seeking, then we’d love to hear from you.
