Are you an experienced Administrator looking for a new challenge? Shared Care Scotland is an innovative national charity, based in Dunfermline, working to support Scotland’s unpaid carers to access short breaks and respite.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, adaptable Administrator with a proven commitment to customer service and experience of working in a busy office. In return we offer a supportive, collaborative team environment with excellent terms and conditions.

This is an exciting time to join Shared Care Scotland as new legislation brings pivotal changes to short breaks and, for the right candidate, this offers huge potential to develop within the role.

Shared Care Scotland (SCS) is a dynamic and ambitious charity dedicated to improving the quality and provision of short breaks in Scotland for adult and young carers and the people they help care for. It is estimated there are 700,000 to 800,000 unpaid carers in Scotland.

We have a vision of a Scotland where everyone who receives support or provides unpaid care can live a satisfying life, with the assistance they need to take regular, quality breaks from demanding caring routines.

As one of Scotland’s leading National Carer Organisations we contribute to the development of policy and best practice for carers. Our activities include events, learning exchange networks, publications, and research. We also host a national online directory of short break services and manage a £6m Short Breaks Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government which provides grant funding to third sector organisations to help carers access breaks from caring.
