Currently the SDS (Self Directed Support) team has 189 “active” cases – with varying assistance needs from the team. This new role brings our specific HR support to PA employers “in-house” and we anticipate will enable us to deliver a more rounded service to people for whom this maybe the first time they’ve employed someone.

With established employers, your role will be as HR Generalist, advising and guiding clients through queries relating to the full employee cycle.
What we need
We’re looking for an experienced HR Advisor with an excellent working knowledge of employment legislation and best practice. Ideally CIPD qualified with a demonstrable track record of continuous professional development, you’ll be skilled in developing effective relationships and demonstrate a client-centred approach.

Visualise Scotland enables adults with disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives. We do this through providing care at home, supported housing and day services in Edinburgh and East Lothian. We are a relatively small organisation with a team of 80 staff and 21 supported individuals. Currently our services are funded almost exclusively through local government.
This is an exciting time to join Visualise as restrictions ease and the people we support start to re-engage with their communities. As we start to build back from the pandemic, we are embarking on a new strategy and looking to diversify our income and funding base. We have received a grant for one year from the Adapt and Thrive programme for a new fundraising position. Initially contracted for 10 days per month, you will support Visualise to build our unrestricted income, through grants, engagement with the private sector, trusts, foundations and fundraising events.
As our new Visualise Fundraiser, you will be our fundraising lead to ensure Visualise achieves a range of funding over the next 12 months. You will work with colleagues and the Board of Trustees on the development of a fundraising strategy to support Visualise’s financial sustainability.
This is a 12 months fixed term contract, with a possible extension dependent on achievement of funding targets.
You have experience with the private sector, including an understanding of companies’ corporate social responsibility plans, have a track record of successful grant and funding applications and be confident in raising Visualise’s profile in Edinburgh. You have the skills to develop a fundraising strategy across a range of income streams.
We’re looking for someone with great communication skills to strengthen our external communication strategy and to support our internal communication processes.
You will be responsible for creating copy for multi-channel use, to tell the inspirational stories of lives changed through our work across Scotland. You will focus on our digital and social media strategy – our website, Facebook, Twitter and e-news.
You’ll need to work with a broad range of people – from service users and staff to volunteers and supporters, as well with other professionals delivering publications, events and fundraising campaigns.
It is essential that you are familiar with web content management systems, like WordPress. You must understand what motivates supporters and how to get the most out of social networks. It would be advantageous to have some basic experience of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop or Illustrator but it’s not essential.
