The Charity and The Vision
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting military children and young people (0 to 25 years) who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Armed Forces.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, following the death of her husband Corporal Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity, which was set up in 2010, provides support and guidance to hundreds of bereaved military children and young people throughout their childhood.
In 2023 Scotty’s supported 659 young people but aims to be supporting 1,000+ bereaved military children and young people annually by 2030. Having established a key role within the Armed Forces charitable sector over the past decade, Scotty’s is now embarking on a growth phase to build a charity capable of delivering its 2030 goals.
The mission of this role is to provide oversight and guidance to the CEO and Head of Finance on the charity’s financial matters, ensuring its financial viability and that proper records and procedures are maintained. The role will also act as a mentor for the Head of Finance.
The charity is in a growth phase of development and many of the challenges it faces are akin to those of a start-up business. A candidate with previous experience of financial accountability in organisations experiencing growth and/or at start-ups would be ideally suited.
