Head of SUPPORT, Office Based, King’s Lynn, Norfolk – full-time, £40,000.

This is a huge new role for us at Scotty’s Little Soldiers.  Thanks to funding from Annington Homes and The Veterans’ Foundation we are developing our SUPPORT Programme which focuses on the health and well-being of bereaved British Forces children and young people.  

This is a permanent, full-time position based at our HQ in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.  We’re looking for someone who will be able to drive our SUPPORT Programme forward and help us to provide the level of support our bereaved military families deserve.  You’ll need to be able to provide direct support to our Scotty Members but also have the strategic thinking to develop the Programme and external relationships.

We believe this could be the most impactful project the charity has implemented since we started.

Filmmaker, Office Based, King’s Lynn, Norfolk – Full time,  POSITION FILLED, thank to everyone who applied.

At Scotty’s we pride ourselves on making use of new technologies and taking on our mission using modern and relevant techniques.  We believe that video is underused and misunderstood by many charities, including our own.  We think there’s a great opportunity for someone with creative talent to produce and edit regular, engaging content for Scotty’s and managing our online video portfolio.  We think this will provide better information to our supporters, engage with new fundraisers, reach out to more beneficiaries and even create new income streams for us.

We’re leaving applications open for this one.  It’s a very specific role and we’re prepared to wait for the right person to fill it.  That’s why there’s no deadline date.  If you think you fit the bill and would love to spend all day every day creating amazing films which help to make a real difference send us your show reel to team@scottyslittlesoldiers.co.uk and let’s start a conversation.

Our future Growth & upcoming roles…

We have a clear vision for the future of Scotty’s Little Soldiers and the support we need to provide to bereaved Forces families.  We know the tools and resources that we will need in order to achieve this vision and in many cases we already know the type of people and the roles within the charity that we help us get there. 

Below are some of the roles we are already thinking about but aren’t quite ready to recruit for yet. Maybe the timing isn’t quite right or the funding needs to be secured. There are no time frames for these roles and some may never transpire, but if you feel that there is something here which you could make your own, feel free to send us your CV and a covering note and, if it’s OK with you, we’ll keep your details on file and let you know if our plans progress.

You can also send your CV through if you believe strongly that you can add value to our team but in a different role to those mentioned on this page. Make sure to include a covering letter that tells us exactly how you think you can add that value.

 Send your CV and Covering Letter to team@scottyslittlesoldiers.co.uk.

 

EA – We recently engaged the NCVO to conduct a governance health check on the charity to give us some insights into areas we could improve on.  One of their next steps was for us to consider taking on an Executive Assistant to help the Chief Executive and Trustees keep on top of the governance admin.  We think this would probably be a part-time position based at the office in King’s Lynn and as well as helping with the above would also include some general administrative duties.  We embrace technology so someone with excellent Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook essential, Sharepoint, Teams preferred) and great organisational skills (have you tried pinning down a group of busy Trustees for a meeting before?!) would be required.  This is still in the pipeline but if you think you have the experience and skills to excel in this role why not get a head start and let us know.

Family Support Worker – a role which would work very closely with the Head of Support and provide a first point of contact for families.  Guiding them on their journey, supporting them every step of the way and utilising the latest technology to provide remote assistance to the hundreds of bereaved families spread across the UK.  We see this as a role based at our office in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

NEW Programme Co-Ordinator – we’re launching a new Programme created specifically for 19-25 year old young adults who lost a parent who served in the Armed Forces.  This programme will be focused on career development and life skills as well as expanding our existing support network beyond our current age range of 0-18.  We’ll be looking for someone, part-time initially, to develop this programme.  See above.

Fundraising Roles – As the charity’s Assistance Programmes for bereaved military families grow, so too does the need for additional funds to cover the costs of running them.  It’s more than likely that we will need to add additional fundraising roles in the next 12 months or so to help generate more income.  If you’re an experienced fundraiser with a successful track record or, if you have a background where you think the skills you’ve acquired would be transferable to the charity sector why not get in touch.  Make sure you tell us why you think you would add value to the charity – we’re only looking for those at the top of their game and really up for the challenge.  Important note: Whilst we champion the use of new technology we also love a good old fashioned team and for this reason our preference is for team members to work closely together at our HQ in Norfolk. 

PR & Comms Manager – We’re currently discussing this one internally.  We will be looking to develop our Awareness (Marketing) Team in the next couple of years and this might be the first role on the list.  Based at our King’s Lynn HQ this position would be responsible for developing our external communications and raising the profile of the charity.
