Area Manager - Aberdeenshire
Salary c. £28,000 

As a result of an increased in demand for our services we are looking for an area manager to develop and deliver Sunrise Partnership's presence across Aberdeenshire.  You will require a relevant qualification along with the appropriate skills and experience to work directly with bereaved children and young people.  This will include one-to-one and group sessions.  You will also lead a small team of sessional workers and volunteers so excellent leadership and inter-personal skills are essential.

This is a full time role (35 hours) but we may be able to consider applications for two part-time posts.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Monday 9 April 2018.

To Absent Friends Week  

As part of the 'To Absent Friends Festival' in November, Sunrise Partnership and the GATE Project are co-hosted an ‘Absent Friends Lunch’ in Aberdeen.  

The aim of the event was to support and encourage people to remember family and friends who have died, and to share stories and memories of them in a supportive and relaxed environment.

As well as a picnic style lunch there was a story teller and some activities designed to facilitate remembering and talking about absent friends. 

Taking time out to remember loved ones and share memories was very therapeutic.  We will be hosting another event in November 2018.  For more information about the To Absent Friends Festival click here.

Meet Sophie Mulhere - Miss Aberdeen and Sunrise Ambassador. Sophie has been helping to raise awareness of Sunrise and spoke so very movingly at a Sunrise stakeholder event. She has also raised funds by selling her dresses worn at various pageants.  We love this Sunrise inspired outfit.  Thank you for all you are doing Sophie.
