Operations Director – Flexible Childcare Services
One Parent Families Scotland has an opportunity for an Operations Director to provide new and dynamic strategic vision in the development of a new Childcare Social Enterprise.
The growing demand for flexible childcare that can be tailored to meet the needs of individual families and the policy changes in the childcare sector, specifically related to the Blueprint for 2020: Expanding Early Years and Childcare in Scotland, means that there are opportunities for social enterprises to provide high quality, flexible, affordable childcare.
OPFS is taking this step to develop the organisation’s flexible childcare services into a thriving social enterprise that can meet the childcare needs of children and families across Scotland.
The Operations Director will bring motivational leadership and dynamic strategic vision to this exciting development while continuing to reflect the core values and ethos of OPFS.
The Director will be involved in establishing the new business structure, leading the transition to an independent enterprise, and growing the business and, supported by the management team, will have responsibility for the social enterprise’s business and funding plans.
The Hunter Foundation is a major investor in this project, and the foundation play a key role in supporting its on-going development.
This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with the enthusiasm, drive and commitment to social enterprise business and ensuring children get the best possible start in life. See further details and application pack.
