Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council’s (EVOC) purpose is to support, promote, develop and represent the Third Sector.

EVOC actively promotes, participates in and contributes to partnership working between the voluntary, public, private and community sectors at a local and national level.


Current vacancies

EVOC helps to support, develop and promote the interests and work of voluntary and community organisations in Edinburgh.

We are recruiting three roles to support an exciting new project to work to develop and deliver Edinburgh Recovery Activities - a programme of support with and for the addiction recovery community in Edinburgh; and to develop the necessary structures to commission this service in the longer term.

A good understanding of the addictions recovery community is essential and a personal or family lived experience of recovery from addiction is a desirable asset in this work.

Embedded in the Adult Health and Wellbeing Team, and working with the Senior Development Officer for Adult Health and Wellbeing, the Senior Development Officer will firstly be responsible for working in partnership with the EADP to further scope out the business case and service design of the new provision in order for it to be commissioned by the EADP for Spring 2020. This will include exploring sources of funding to supplement the core funding from the EADP and appropriate structures to give the recovery community sustainable involvement in the ongoing provision. Secondly the post holder will support two Development Officers to develop Edinburgh Recovery Activities - a programme of activities and events with and for the recovery community. Ensuring meaningful coproduction at all stages with the recovery community will be a central element of the role.
