The Eric Liddell Centre (ELC) is a local care charity and community hub in the South West of Edinburgh delivering a range of services throughout the City. Founded in 1980 in memory of the 1924 Olympic 400m gold medallist, Eric Liddell, our mission is to be at the heart of the community, enhancing health and wellbeing and improving people’s lives.
We are embarking upon a period of growth and development through to 2021. There is also a new vision for services for the local Community offered at the ELC linked to our Strategic Business Plan 2018 -21.
The Fundraising Manager will play a key role in developing the Fundraising strategy of the organisation and driving forward new initiatives and projects to assist the long-term sustainability of the Centre. You will identify, generate and grow charitable income to underpin the ELC’s work in the community by managing a portfolio of funders and prospects, creatively stewarding existing relationships and maximising opportunities for giving.
If you have a proven track record in generating major income streams from trusts, foundations and grant funders and are passionate about enriching and supporting people’s lives, please get in touch. This is a full-time post subject to a successful probationary period.
This is an exciting opportunity to provide support to families whose children are attending counselling with the children & young people’s counselling service. As part of the team, you’ll provide focused individual and group work in order to aid the families understanding of their child’s recovery from abuse.
If you are an experienced professional with a Social Work, Community work, Counselling or other appropriate qualification we want to hear from you.
This is a permanent, full time post of 35 hours per week. Hours to be worked flexibly to suit the needs of the service (evenings and occasional weekends as required).
It’s all about the people.
Here at Morlich House in Edinburgh, we don’t just see those we work with as older people. They’re someone’s parent. Someone’s grandparent. For us, providing the best quality of care is hugely rewarding and our goal is to ensure that every one of our residents enjoys the best possible quality of life.
Something as simple as a smile can make the world of difference to our day, and theirs. If you share our belief, this is your opportunity to join our close-knit and supportive team. It can be pretty challenging at times and priorities can change quickly so you will definitely need to be a patient and understanding individual. We work closely together as a team though – there’s always someone to talk to and we all help each other out wherever we can.
While an SVQ 3 qualification in Social Care would be ideal, it’s not essential as we’ll support you to gain it. In fact, we’ll make sure that you have all the training and development you need, not only so you can do a great job, but to help you build your career with us too.
You can also look forward to an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance.
What’s more, you will be part of one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social work organisations. At CrossReach, we offer quality care and counselling to a wide range of people in need. But the real story of CrossReach is the work that our staff do: reaching out and making a real difference to the lives of others. If you’d like to join them, we look forward to hearing from you.
As we do our work in Christ’s name you must be respectful of our Christian Ethos and be able to work within it. You do not need to share our faith. These posts are subject to PVG Membership.
Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s Charity. We exist to prevent abuse and neglect, to protect children and keep them safe from harm. Together we help children in Scotland live in safe, loving families and build strong communities. We support survivors of abuse, trauma and other adversity to recover and we work tirelessly to protect the rights of children in Scotland.
This is an exciting opportunity to work alongside children and families to influence the development of rights- based, child- centred, trauma- informed policy and practice in Scotland. Working closely with the Communications and Engagement team, the Chief Executive and Children and Family Services you will develop, deliver and lead on a public policy and influencing strategy that is rooted in the experience of the children and families who use our services. You will work with stakeholders at a key time for Scottish policy to influence change to ensure children are given equal protection from assault, advance actions to improve the experiences of child witnesses and help to embed an understanding of the impact of trauma across policy and practice.
If you are an experienced professional with a background in developing policy and communication strategies and campaigning for legislative and social policy change we want to hear from you.
The post will commence from January 2019 until December 2019 to cover a period of maternity leave.
Hours – flexible
Location: Edinburgh, however we can have some flexibility on location
