This is an exciting opportunity to be a key part of a small communications team delivering at a national level across subjects such as participatory budgeting, community empowerment, co-production and more.
SCDC, incorporating CHEX, the Scottish Co-production Network and PB Scotland, has recently undertaken a review of its strategic objectives to ensure that we are fit for purpose for the challenges and opportunities ahead for community development in Scotland. As a result of this review and as part of our ongoing succession planning, we are now seeking to recruit new staff to the organisation on both a permanent and temporary basis.
SCDC is seeking to recruit two Development Managers, one permanent and one temporary, to develop and implement several of our operational programmes and to deliver on contract work. To be successful, you will need a proven track record in working with and alongside communities and community organisations, and with strategic partners at local and national levels. You will have knowledge of the policy environment for community development and empowerment in Scotland and you will have first rate facilitation, communication and writing skills. As a key member of the team, you will be expected to contribute to the strategic direction of SCDC through programme development and business planning.
