Livingston James retained by Scottish Recovery Consortium to appoint new Chief Executive Officer

Scottish Recovery Consortium is a national organisation that supports, represents, and connects alcohol and drug recovery across Scotland. We achieve this by working with recovery in all its forms – from grassroots to government, from individuals to international organisations and we value lived and living experiences throughout.

Working closely with a motivated and committed board and staff team we are looking for our new Chief Executive to agree on the core focus and future strategic direction of the organisation whilst also ensuring the organisation’s values and core principles continue to be embedded across all levels of the organisation and are also recognised externally by our partners and stakeholders across Scotland. Critical to success in this role will be the development and implementation of a new five-year strategy that will identify opportunities for growth and development, opportunities to promote and encourage increased collaboration whilst also embedding a rights-based approach by ensuring the voice of lived and living experience can be heard.

Scottish Recovery Consortium has an important and critical role at a national level and our new Chief Executive will be tasked with raising the organisation’s profile across recovery groups, communities and networks and ultimately ensuring the voice of people with lived and living experience remains central to, not only policy development but the implication of recovery orientated practice and delivery at a local level.

We are seeking a proactive, solutions-focused, and hands-on leader with the ability to work at national strategic level, regional, and local levels with a diverse range of stakeholders from Government to local community groups. Whilst the successful candidate does not need to bring direct lived experience it is imperative that they can demonstrate both transferable skills and more importantly empathy and understanding of the challenges faced by those who are in recovery or have been impacted by recovery.

As an accomplished communicator, you will have demonstrable credibility when engaging with both internal and external stakeholders, coupled with the ability to create alliances and encourage increased collaboration to direct support, represent and connect recovery across Scotland.

If you share our passion to transform lives and if the prospect of directly shaping the future of our organisation excites you, please review the full position profile, below, or contact Douglas Adam via [email protected] to learn more.
