In News by Jim AndersonLeave a Comment

Officers Association Scotland is a military charity, established in 1920, to provide support to former military officers and their dependents based in Scotland or planning to settle in Scotland after leaving the military. While originally a welfare charity, over the years OA Scotland has developed, so that it now provides a comprehensive employment advice service along with welfare and financial support to individuals as well as grants to other charities.

The Charity is looking for an energetic, capable and motivated Chief Executive to work with the Board of Directors to take this work forwards. This is a unique opportunity, offering the successful candidate a wide ranging and extremely varied role. This is a job for a “do-er” rather than a delegator as they will have a hands-on role delivering the Charity’s employment advice service and engaging with employers to benefit clients. They will act as Company Secretary as well as managing all aspects of the charity including creating and delivering a marketing plan and overseeing budgets and finance. In addition, they will work closely with the Head of Welfare Services in Poppyscotland (our sister charity) to oversee the Charity’s welfare services. They will also create and manage the annual process for providing grants to other veterans’ organisations. They will be responsible for ensuring the Charity maintains its profile with politicians, senior service personnel and amongst veterans’ charities in Scotland as well as representing the Charity at formal and Remembrance events.
