The Employers’ Advice Service (EAS) is an essential service provided by GCVS, which offers employers and managers in the third sector expert advice, information, support, consultancy and training in all aspect of HR. The service has been running since 2000 and has around 85 subscribing client organisations across Scotland. However, GCVS is ambitious to grow the service across Scotland’s third sector to ensure third sector organisations without access to internal HR advice, have personalised, expert HR support that offers excellence and value for money.

Funding for the role is derived from income generation through subscriptions, consultancy and training, so the post holder will be expected to market as well as deliver the service.

Applicants should be CIPD qualified, demonstrate extensive knowledge and experience of employers’ legal responsibilities as well as good practice in all aspects of managing staff. Ability to produce clear, accessible written procedures, guidance and reports and explain complex information in a patient, clear and jargon-free way are also essential criteria to succeed in this post.

During the last four years GCVS has successfully developed the relatively new project – Community Connectors – which key aims are to help older people have better access to better information and, if they so wish, to help them look at what they need to live healthier and happier lives as independently as possible. The Community Connectors programme is delivered in partnership with the Glasgow & West of Scotland Housing Forum, working alongside local and citywide organisations to strengthen information links between the Third Sector, older people, carers and statutory services. The model has been rolled out in the three locality sectors within Glasgow and staff will operate from a partner Housing Association based in the community.

We are now recruiting the following post:

Reporting to, and working closely with the Community Connector Practitioner, the Programme Administrators will play a key role in the efficient running of the Community Connectors Programme.

This role extends beyond the run of the mill administrative tasks. You will be the first point of contact for the programme so the ability to liaise and communicate in a friendly, effective and informative manner with older people, their carers, colleagues, partners and stakeholders is essential for this post.

Applicants should demonstrate the ability to maintain and manipulate databases, effectively disseminate information, provide accurate and up-to-date financial records and assist with meetings, events and activities that are organised by the Community Connectors Programme team.
