Area Manager, West of Scotland. (Part time)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and experienced manager to oversee the day-to-day management of Cruse Scotland West Area, this includes our teams in Ayrshire & Arran; Dumfries; Dunbartonshire; Glasgow & Greater Glasgow; Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire.

Vacancy: Part-time Area Manager (West)

Salary: £16,000 plus 6% contribution to pension (subject to April salary review)

Base: Glasgow (Hybrid)

Closing date for applications: Noon on Friday 12 April 2024


Candidates are required to have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills to provide managerial support, which is often provided from a distance.

Excellent communication skills are essential as the postholder is required to respond effectively to a wide range of enquiries which includes bereaved people. You will be required to establish effective working relationships with a range of Cruse Scotland volunteers and staff, as well as statutory funders and grant making trusts. Experience of volunteer management would be advantageous.

Due to the wide geographical spread of the role, the postholder will be required to travel occasionally to each of the service bases within our West Area; and to other locations within Scotland for meetings and training.

Whilst the role can be hybrid, we have recently secured a new office base in Glasgow so there will be a regular requirement to have a routine presence in the office.
