CEMVO Scotland is a national intermediary organisation with the aim of building the capacity and sustainability of the ethnic minority (EM) voluntary sector and its communities. We are working in partnership with the Scottish Government to deliver a national awareness raising campaign to recruit people from ethnic minority communities into Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) Sector training and jobs. To help us deliver this partnership programme, we are seeking to recruit an Early Learning & Childcare Recruitment Officer (Ethnic Minority).
Working with the lead officer, you will require experience of working with, or empathy with ethnic minority communities as the main focus of the job is to organise and deliver events and talks throughout Scotland (particularly in the East Coast of Scotland) to EM groups / communities. You will also be required to provide ad hoc employment support (e.g. job applications, interview skills) to EM people and so experience or sound knowledge of job search skills will be an advantage. ELC training and employment opportunities will also need to be promoted through promotional materials, CEMVO website, social media, newsletters, mailings, etc, and so good experience / knowledge of marketing /promotional activities will be highly useful. It will also be an advantage to have good knowledge and experience of Early Learning & Childcare (ELC) pathways into employment and training within the ELC sector. However, this is not essential as this can be acquired through “on the job” learning.
