Aberlour Child Care Trust (“Aberlour”) currently supports disadvantaged children, young people and families to have a brighter future throughout Scotland. Giving children an equal chance and the best possible start in life is at the heart of everything we do.

With ambitious growth plans we acknowledge that, as an organisation, we need to be nimbler and embrace change and innovation. Working collaboratively with colleagues across the organisation to deliver operational efficiencies and enable the growth of our services to support more children and families earlier, our new Director of Children and Families will be pivotal to the sustainability, reputation, success and future of Aberlour.

With strategic and operational responsibility for all Children and Families Services you will focus on ensuring: regulatory compliance; continuous practice improvement and excellence; effective people, risk and financial management; the growth and development of new services and the maintenance and sustainability of existing services.

As an informed and authoritative voice on social policy affecting children and families in Scotland at both a national and local level you will develop and embed a culture of continuous improvement whilst also further raising the profile of Aberlour and the voices of the children, young people and families we support, building on our reputation as a trusted provider of high-quality services.
