An exciting opportunity to develop and deliver this Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund project. The aim of the project will be to co-ordinate and develop a collaborative working model with New Scots in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire; a “digital champions” model; a strong understanding of digital barriers and opportunities; a digital inclusion toolkit for future new arrivals to the region.
The project will also have an important strategic aspect to it, to promote and co-ordinate a partnership approach to addressing digital and associated barriers for New Scots and migrant communities.
Ideally we are looking for someone with a background in digital skills provision, particularly in a community engagement or development context.
The project is delivered in partnership with Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils, with the Project Co-ordinator sitting within the GREC staff team
GREC is developing a new Policy Officer role within its team. This role will be crucial for GREC meeting one of its strategic outcomes which is to influence policy and practice at a national and local level. The overall aim of the role is to effectively influence change around key issues of inequality and discrimination affecting communities in Grampian.
The Officer will be working across the GREC staff team, to ensure that the lived experiences of our clients and community connections are effectively captured in a way that can be used to effectively influence policy makers. Working with GREC’s General Manager, the post will also involve regular engagement with policy makers at a local and national level, as well as regular interaction with GREC’s Policy and Research Committee.
The project is funded by Scottish Government’s Equality and Human Rights Fund. The Policy Officer will be expected to contribute to funder reports and meetings.
