Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.

Do you love all things legacy? Do you take pride in building good working relationships? We’re looking for the perfect person to join Clan CHSS at this exciting time. You will be the first point of contact for legal professionals and personal executors when a Gift has been left in a Will to CHSS.

You will be responsible for all incoming legacies to the Charity: maintaining and updating legacy records on the database working closely with Fundraising and Finance colleagues – as well as varied external stakeholders - to provide an excellent legacy administration service.  Your work will help keep this vital income stream buoyant and ensure CHSS’ central aim of NO LIFE HALF LIVED is met.

You will have customer and/or donor care experience and ideally some experience of working for/with solicitors. You will be able to use your own initiative, manage your time effectively and be comfortable working in an open plan environment.

CHSS employees enjoy a variety of organisational benefits including: Company pension scheme, generous holiday allowance, company sick pay, health insurance, Childcare vouchers, employee welfare support and life assurance.
