We're recruiting!

Our brilliant Development Manager (and first ever employee!), Carole Kelly, has done a fantastic job pulling together a business plan and associated documents for SuperTroop. However sadly, she has been tempted away from us by a full-time contract elsewhere and so we’re back on the market.

The role is just one day per week, but it is far from trivial. In fact, our Development Manager is absolutely crucial for the organisation’s future growth and success. We’re looking for someone dedicated, enthusiastic and skillful to meet a range of exciting targets. The successful candidate’s task will be to establish our existing practices into a replicable model, and then start to grow the charity - we want to provide more holidays, to more people. They will build on the foundational work by Carole, creating a business plan for the holiday with asscoiated documents (role descriptions etc.). The job will provide a lot of room for creativity, independence and responsibility. And we hope that one day per week will soon grow into a lot more!

Full details of the role are in this job description - please read it in detail before applying.

All applicants should apply by submitting a covering letter (up to two pages) explaining how they meet the requirements for the role, along with an up to date CV. Please email these to sue@supertroop.org by the closing deadline of 5pm on Sunday 10th November 2019

We anticipate interviews will be held in the week commencing 25th November 2019. You will be notified by email whether you have been shortlisted for interview or not.

Not long now until our second holiday at Fettes!

We are getting excited to welcome our holidaymakers to our second holiday at Fettes shortly. Many of the young people enjoyed it so much they are coming back this year which is fantastic. All families should have received a welcome pack explaining how you can best plan and prepare for the holiday to make sure it is successful for each young person. If you haven’t received this, or need another copy, just let us know at info@supertroop.org.
