East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action was launched on 1st May 2012 from a merger of the former East Dunbartonshire Council for Voluntary Service and the Volunteer Centre East Dunbartonshire. The new organisation is part of the network of Third Sector Interfaces across Scotland and its membership is made up of local individuals, volunteers, voluntary and community groups and organisations.
An exciting opportunity has arisen within East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action (EDVA) for a Community Builder Development Officer
The Community Builder will work with local people and communities in East Dunbartonshire and support them to develop viable and sustainable local groups to make a positive impact in their communities and empower local people as well as working with existing groups and organisations to assist with their development and progress.
In addition, the Community Builder will develop a programme of activity with local community councils that will help them increase capacity and activity.
The Community Builder will also ensure that the voluntary sector and community groups are involved in community planning and engage with the local community planning partnership to ensure the sector is actively included and represented in the work of the partnership.
The role will operate through partnership principles and support the delivery of public health approaches that build capacity and improves the quality of life in local areas.
This post will work as part of a team of Development Officers in EDVA whose expertise in volunteering, the social economy, local planning partnerships and social care will add value to the post. The post will contribute to a thriving, vibrant and sustainable community led voluntary sector in East Dunbartonshire.
