About the role
We are looking for a brilliant administrator with a love for history, who will provide high quality support to our network of retired Queen’s Nurses. These are delightful and inspirational women who have served the communities of Scotland as district nurses through the second half of the twentieth century and their welfare is a key thread of our work.
This is a wide-ranging role that will see you involved in a variety of activities from getting to know our archival material and finding creative ways to use it, developing a comprehensive contacts database, providing cheerful telephone support to volunteers, engaging in the history of Queen’s Nursing in Scotland, sorting out expenses claims and grant application forms as well as organising events across the country.
Being a small team, we also need someone who enjoys rolling up their sleeves up and pitching in with whatever’s required.
- The post is offered 30 hours per week.
- We are offering a salary of £23-25k (pro rata).
- We offer a 10% contributory pension, 38 days leave (pro rata including public holidays) and flexible working.

With a strong interest in oral history, you will have great admin skills, and you will be able to balance the demands of deadlines with a high level of attention to detail. You will be able to demonstrate effective project management and an ability to coordinate a range of admin processes at once with interruptions. Crucial to success in the role will be the ability to communicate clearly, cheerfully and tactfully with the retired Queen’s Nurses and the Volunteer Visitors who support them. At the heart of your enjoyment of the role will be your love for the stories of the past and your creativity in capturing them in ways which bring those stories to a new generation.
