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.

Role Mission

The mission of this role is to provide oversight and guidance to the CEO and Head of People & Culture on the charity’s HR matters, ensuring it meets its legal obligations as an employee, and creates a great working experience. The role will also act as a mentor for the Head of People and Culture.

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. In the past few years, we grew from 10 to 20+ team members, with likely growth to 30-40 in the coming years to meet our long-term goals. A candidate with previous experience of organisations having gone through growth or start-up periods would be beneficial. The charity also likes to look for forward thinking solutions to creating a great workplace and currently has benefits such as unlimited leave, flexible working, and a focus on ‘supporting’ rather than ‘reporting’.
