Are you looking for the rewards of living in an island community and have skills and experience to deliver health and social care service?

To do this we are looking for someone with previous experience of leading and managing staff to deliver high quality services.

Lying off the northern coast of Scotland, between John O'Groats and Shetland, Orkney is an archipelago of over 70 beautiful islands, 17 of which are inhabited. The total population is approximately 22,000 with most people living on the Mainland. The excellent ferry and air connections make travel to the Scottish mainland relatively easy. There is a rich archaeological history to be explored, as well as many outdoor pursuits.
Rise to the challenge and enjoy the opportunity - Orkney is a wonderful place to live and work and offers low pollution, low crime, excellent schools, good leisure facilities, unique wildlife and amazing scenery.
The successful applicant will be able to choose which partner organisation they prefer to be formally employed by.
