Every one of us has the potential for a more fulfilling future. For some, that means leaving drugs, homelessness, or crime behind – discovering their self-worth, returning to a life of hope and making a new beginning. For you, it’s a role with huge scope for transforming people’s lives when they need it most.


As Head of Service, you’ll coordinate nine of our services across the country, leading our work on substance use, homelessness, and justice. With experience in the sector, you’ll know how interlinked these issues are. So, you’ll relish the chance to take a holistic approach to developing our services – not least as a member of our Adult Care Management team. Travelling around Scotland, you’ll guide our Service Managers, supervise our activities and consult both staff and service users, all to help shape the best services possible.

As a not-for-profit organisation and one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social care charities, CrossReach offer support to anyone in need and often those who’ve never had the opportunities many take for granted. To help us do that, we have a diverse 1,600-stong team, from school leavers to seasoned care professionals. Taking a leading role in that team needs an experienced manager of multi-million-pound budgets, of innovative strategies, and of capable, motivated people. It’s an incredible opportunity to take the next step up in your career.

And it could be the first of many. With us, you’ll have ongoing training, support for gaining professional qualifications and, potentially, opportunities for progression. Until then, you’ll find a role that’s rewarding in every sense. As well as a competitive salary, there’s a generous pension, health benefits, paid holiday and a range of leisure discounts.

Flexible location throughout Scotland but must be willing to travel.

Interviews will be held on Friday, 10 June.
