We believe in a world where every child has equal access to safe surgery.

That doesn’t seem like such a big ask. Every child has a right to life and that shouldn’t be taken away by an injury or illness that is easily fixed.

Children who battle cancer and undergo chemotherapy shouldn’t get to the end of that process only to be denied the surgery that will offer them the chance of survival. Children who break an arm or a leg shouldn’t live the rest of their lives in disability.

Our vision is for a world where every child is treated equally. Our mission is to support local doctors through the provision of training and infrastructure to ensure they can use their incredible talents to care for their nation’s children.


The Administrative Assistant will work alongside the Office Manager in the Edinburgh office based on George Street. The role will involve a variety of administrative, support, and clerical tasks.

This position would suit a school leaver or those looking to develop a career in a small & vibrant office in a charitable organisation. The role offers potential for career development within the expanding team and the opportunity to work with a passionate group of individuals.
