Fife Alcohol Support Service (FASS) is Fife’s main third sector alcohol and substance misuse charity. FASS has been working on the frontline, supporting people through their issues with misuse and on to better lives for over 40 years now. Our many services range from therapeutic counselling to practical support, and we help individuals, their families and communities Fife-wide.

As our chosen candidate, you will extend this ethos of enablement throughout our dedicated teams. The organisation has evolved rapidly in recent years and we are now looking to consolidate and expand strengths across our range of services. With experience and a working knowledge of alcohol and drug services, on appointment, you will have the unique opportunity of taking FASS to its next stage of its development.

You will be a dynamic individual—a visionary and great communicator. As our overall Head of Service, you will be a strategist, innovator and rational decision-maker, keen to embrace change. You will have excellent planning, analytical and negotiation skills and will steer the dedicated staff teams by example, creating an enhanced culture of collaboration and support. You will also understand the importance of a strong brand, both externally and internally, and work towards its creation.

As an experienced and effective leader, you will have sound knowledge of financial management, HR, IT and communications management and systems.

In return you will experience first-hand how FASS, under your leadership, will help people transform their lives.
