You’ll join our dedicated ICT team, playing a crucial role in providing ICT support for staff across the organisation. This will encompass a wide variety of areas including administration of our network, servers, and cloud-based services.
You’ll be keen to learn, and we will support you with training to develop your skills. You’ll have strong IT literacy skills and have a good knowledge of Windows based PC systems and Microsoft 365 products. But any experience with network protocols, Microsoft Server 2012 R2 or above, and CRM systems would be a bonus.

Changeworks is a great place to work. We hold Investors in People Platinum accreditation (something only a few organisations in Scotland have), and we were nominated for employer of the year by the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce this year. Our staff overwhelmingly would recommend us as an employer too.
The Climate Emergency has resulted in ambitious national targets to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment and reduce rates of fuel poverty. This has driven a significant increase in the number of pilot and large-scale interventions delivered by Changeworks and external organisations in this area. These include area-based domestic energy efficiency retrofit and decarbonisation projects and programmes.
We are a growing organisation, and this role is crucial to the delivery of our ambitious objectives. We want to decarbonise homes in Scotland on a massive scale, and that needs talented individuals like you to help us deliver on our objectives. You’ll receive full training plus coaching and mentoring.
We offer a wide range of staff benefits including flexible working, bike to work scheme, an excellent pension scheme and 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.
At Changeworks, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone.

UNICEF ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated, and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
The UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) has built a strong presence in Scotland over many years through several principal strands of work. In 2015, a dedicated office was established in Edinburgh to support UNICEF UK to deliver on our mandate to uphold ‘the Convention of the Rights of the Child’. In addition, UNICEF UK in Scotland has a well-established Advisory Board in Scotland, and we are now seeking additional board members.
We desire a board that reflects the diversity of our colleagues we attract and the communities we work with. We want each member of the Advisory Board to bring their individual, unique worldview, their life experience, specific skills, knowledge, and networks, to collectively help the Board provide sound advice and counsel to the UNICEF UK team and support the delivery of our strategy.
If you have experience in any of the following areas, we would like to hear from you:
· Working with children and young people and knowledge of the sector in Scotland
· Knowledge or personal experience of international development
· Experience of working within the private sector (for example CSR/tech/finance)
We also welcome applicants who may not have served on a board but have had board exposure at a senior level and who are now open to volunteering at UNICEF UK in Scotland to support the delivery of its strategic objectives.
Home-Start is the leading family support charity striving to give young children the best possible start in life. We work with families to help them overcome issues such as isolation, mental health difficulties, bereavement, family breakdown, addiction, physical ill-health and many others.
We were the first Home-Start in Scotland and have been supporting local families in Perth & Kinross for over 35 years.
Home Start-Perth and Kinross currently has vacancies for trustees.
Trustees undertake a wide range of roles but are mainly responsible for making the charity effective, providing overall direction and maintaining sound management of funds. We are especially keen to hear from anyone with a financial experience background.
Trustees help make decisions and guide the charity to deliver the best possible service for the families it supports. Being a trustee can be hard work, but it is also very rewarding, giving many opportunities for personal development and the chance to give something back to your local community.
We are looking for specialist skills like finance, IT, fundraising and marketing but if you don’t have these, please do offer your own life experience and skills.
We need a range of experience and perspectives on what we do to improve our decisions and strengthen our organisation. Our aim is that together we proactively encourage inclusion and equality through our policies, service design, staff management and sustainable finances.
What’s in it for you?
You can give back to others using your existing skills and experience and what you’ve learned along the way. It can help you with your own personal and career development by growing your experience and knowledge of the voluntary sector with training and the support of experienced board members. Home-Start Perth and Kinross is an independent charity, but we are affiliated to the national organisation Home-Start UK which means that trustees can also access national training, networking and support.
We encourage you to apply if you are keen to..
What does it involve?
You will need to commit to six meetings a year. In between board meetings you will be responding to emails and reading papers and perhaps attending another one or two other meetings.
