We are OnFife and as Fife’s largest cultural organisation we specialise in making jaws drop, hearts warm, eyes light up and imaginations run wild. We work with a huge range of partners, artists and creatives and our spaces are some of Fife’s favourite places. An ambitious leadership-oriented charity, we’re built on strong values, and those values make us who we are – Fearless, Inviting, Fair and Exciting.

We offer a local government pension scheme, generous holiday allowance and flexible working opportunities. If you need to travel for work, we can provide pool cars if you’re near head office or pay travel expenses so you are not out of pocket! Along with this, you can also access discounted gym/swim memberships and other employee benefits.

The Role
Following a recent re-structure, we have an exciting opportunity for a Community Wellbeing Manager to join the Cultural Heritage & Wellbeing team, leading on the strategic development and management of community wellbeing services and programming within libraries, museums and theatres across OnFife and Fife’s communities.

One of four managers reporting to the Head of Cultural Heritage & Wellbeing, you will head up a team comprising Wellbeing Project Co-ordinator and Project Support and will have oversight of our current Macmillan Cancer Information service.

With 35 libraries – 29 managed directly by OnFife’s Operations staff – working alongside our museums, galleries and theatres there is tremendous scope to make a real difference through service development across Fife.

About You
You will have a passion for encouraging, supporting and developing a lifelong library habit in the people of Fife. You will understand the role that libraries can play in the lives of our communities, be able to demonstrate your commitment to and experience of extending the role of libraries beyond books to impact on wellbeing, learning and engagement and be able to apply your expertise to widening out wellbeing across other service areas.

You will have meticulous attention to detail, skilled at monitoring, assessing and evaluating services, ensuring data analysis is used as evidence of best practice in service design.

You will have a library and information studies degree or postgraduate qualification (recognised by CILIPs) or equivalent.

Flexibility will be required and there may will be travel throughout the region so a driving licence will be beneficial but not necessary.
