Blue Triangle’s core mission is to empower people to thrive, by delivering solutions in connected communities which focus on the needs of each individual. Our approach is trauma-informed, person-centred and wellbeing focused, and aims to ensure that in Scotland, everyone is able to access support whenever, and for however long, they need it.

As our new Chief Executive, you will work closely with an ambitious and caring Board to agree on the core focus and future strategic direction of the organisation. Together, we will ensure we provide love and deliver real value to those people who are most in need of our services while maintaining strong governance and finances.
