Working at local and national level, Visibility Scotland aims to affect positive change and improve outcomes for visually impaired people of all ages. We want to empower and encourage children and adults to focus on what they can do, not what they cannot.

Visibility Scotland are now recruiting an experienced Head of Operations to help us achieve our strategic goals, drive service development and become part of a dynamic and innovative team. To apply for this exciting full-time post, you must have experience of operations management.

You will have a demonstrable passion for providing and leading person-centred services, and will be skilled in managing and co-ordinating multiple services for a geographically diverse staff team.

This is a two year fixed contract.

Working as a part of the Senior Management Team, the Head of Operations will manage the day-to-day operations of Visibility Scotland services. You will be flexible and adaptable to changing service demands, whilst always commanding a positive voice for the visually impaired community.

You will link closely with the CEO, reporting on service activities and progress. You must be a concise and effective report writer, as production of service reports to the CEO/Board of Trustees and our funding partners will be one of your regular, ongoing tasks.

The Head of Operations will build new and nurture existing relationships with our funding partners and associated professional network, represent Visibility Scotland at meetings and exemplify our commitment to high standards, partnership working and the development and deployment of innovative services.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a motivated and ambitious organisation. You will ideally have a proven track record in operational management in health and social care or the willingness and motivation to learn. Team spirit and strong leadership qualities are a must.

You should be a solution-focused, problem-solver with a confident, resilient and helpful nature. You will be comfortable communicating at the senior level, both internally and externally. The ability to work at pace and manage change are key.
