PLUS is a well established organisation, based in Stirling, and working across the Forth Valley to provide support to children and young people with disabilities. Recently achieving gradings of 'Very Good' from the Care Inspectorate, PLUS prides itself in the quality and diverse nature of our service provisions.
Both posts are new to PLUS and have been created in order to allow us to respond to demand for services. We are keen to be able to improve the journey the children, young people and adults have during their time with PLUS and are excited about the prospect of having a real focus, new drive and fresh eyes to help us as we reduce the current restrictions we have on our service delivery.
There will be opportunities for the successful candidate to develop our offerings via group based activities and individualised support, ensuring that a focus on person centeredness remains a key priority as services return to some level of new normal.
The post holders will liaise with young people, the adults, their families and partner agencies in the development of care plans, designing bespoke services to meet agreed outcomes.
These exciting roles would suit a dynamic and self motivated individual who has the drive to utilise their experience and creativity to build relationships and support the continued development of services within PLUS.
Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS) are Scotland’s national reuse, repair and recycling charity.
At CRNS we have a vision is to see a circular economy in Scotland where resources are not wasted in landfill, but instead, they are reused, repaired and recycled. We work with a wide variety of our members to deliver this vision. Our membership is growing and ranges from bike projects to repair cafes, tool libraries to food banks, charity shops to environmental education charities. What unites us is delivering the social and environmental benefits which flow from a more circular economy.
Our work at CRNS is growing and we need to bring in a new team member to underpin, support and accelerate this growth.
The role of Communications and Campaigns Officer is brand new for us, so we are really excited about it. This means there is a significant opportunity for the successful candidate to (re)invent our communications and campaigning going forward and make a major contribution to us as an organisation and the wider sector that we serve. We are also determined to get the right person to join our strong team which is why we are open to exploring different options regarding hours and place of work.
Perhaps you are a communications and marketing professional in business who is attracted by our social and environmental purpose. Or maybe you are working in a communications and campaigning role in the third sector and looking for a fresh challenge. Either way you should be a strong team-player, proactive self-starter, have excellent communication skills and committed to high standards of delivery.
This is a really exciting time for communications and campaigning at CRNS. On the communications side we are about to rebrand and rename ourselves which will help us to position the organisation for rapid future growth. On the campaigning side, COP26 will provide a once in a generation environmental focus here in Scotland. It is a great time to join our team to help take the organisation to the next level.
