Do you have a background in social care or third sector management?

Are you looking for a new role in a charity which meets its aims through a very different approach?

Loch Arthur Community is a modern rural Community in which a group of people with varying abilities create and sustain a vibrant Community through shared living.

The Community Operational Manager will join the existing small Community management team, leading in some key areas and adding their skills and expertise to the group as a whole, to ensure that the Community continues to successfully meet all of its operational challenges and that it continues to develop and flourish. This role would suit an experienced leader and manager who would welcome the opportunity to work in an open collaborative environment. We are looking for someone who is excited by the challenges of working with others to manage the sensitive organisational change which is required to take us into the future.

The Community is connected to the worldwide Camphill movement which works in a social therapeutic way inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner. There are 7 households in which the 28 people supported in the Community live alongside life sharing short and long-term volunteers. There are also a variety of productive workshops and enterprises which have developed over the years – a farm, productive garden, creamery, wood workshop, weavery, and farm shop.

If you would like to discuss this role, please contact Steph Atwell on or 01387 259669 (option 3) to arrange a call-back.
