Are you looking for a role in which you will help to improve the lives of families in your community and beyond?

One that encourages you to share your expertise, build new skills and feel valued by colleagues, clients and the organisation you work for?

We are looking for a part-time Admin/Resource Worker to join our Highland service.

The successful applicant will join Scottish Huntington’s Association at an exciting time as we prepare to launch our 2023-28 Standing Tall strategy to transform the care and support of Huntington’s families.

This follows two years of expansion in specialist teams, increased funding, a rise in media engagement, growth in parliamentary support for our work, and the success of our ground-breaking Dance 100 event in Glasgow.

Providing support to the Senior Huntington’s Disease Specialist (SHDS) in our Highland Service, the part-time Admin/Resource Worker has a key role to play in the specialist team which provides care management, specialist assessment and regular emotional support to individuals, and their families, throughout the Highlands. The service works in partnership with, and provides training and education to, local Health and Social Care teams, professionals and voluntary agencies involved in all aspects of Huntington’s disease care.

We invite applications from experienced administration workers with excellent communication, IT and interpersonal skills. The right candidate will have a competence of using databases and spreadsheets and working knowledge of NHS IT applications and audio typing. You will be able to carry out basic budgetary tasks, manage HD Specialist diaries and take minutes of team meetings.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, motivated and takes great pride in the work they carry out.

Scottish Huntington’s Association is only charity in Scotland dedicated exclusively to families impacted by Huntington’s disease, a devastating hereditary condition that changes the brain and causes severe and complex physical, mental and cognitive symptoms. You will find an ambitious and hard-working organisation, recognised at national and international levels for its expertise and approach.

Please note: Hybrid working means a lot of our staff work partially from home however it is expected that the post holder will travel to the office in the Highlands as required.
