We are seeking an enthusiastic Project Development Manager who will lead the development, implementation and evaluation of an exciting new partnership project to explore where ‘love’ and relationships sit within the care system and how guidance can be developed for workers and for key stakeholders.
The project partners are Aberlour Child Care Trust, Care Inspectorate, CELCIS and Includem. We believe that children and young people in care, have the right to live within a loving and nurturing environment. However, the notion of love has to some extent become mistrusted in the care sector and workers and key stakeholders alike can be uncertain about how it can most effectively be used to create a loving ear for children and young people in care. This work is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by the Big Lottery.
The project will run in two areas: Aberdeen and Fife. The Project Development Manager will work with two care experienced Project Development Assistants to carry out the work. The Project Development Assistants are likely to have had no or very limited work experience and, as such, you will play a signficant role in supporting them to undertake their role enabling them to enhance their future job opportunities.
As well as leading on development of the project, you will be responsible for developing appropriate means of recording and analysing the views and outcomes from the consultation work. You will also record and report on these views in a way that will enable the findings to be evaulated and implemented. Your work will link with that of the Care Inspectorate, the outcomes of the project will, in turn, link to inspections and Social Care Standards.
You will work to a Project Board comprising the partner organisations. This role is exciting and challenging, requiring you to balance your interpersonal skills with the need to secure the outcomes of the project. If you consider that you have the right mix of skills and knowledge to be able to undertake this role, we would like to hear from you. For an informal discussion in the first instance, please ring John Ryan on: 07854 958096.
The Volunteer Coordinator will develop volunteering opportunities across DWA services including befriending, peer mentoring, participation and additional activities for women, children and young people. The Volunteer Coordinator will also oversee the volunteer counsellors we currently have within DWA and develop placement opportunities for student counsellors. A large part of the role will relate to the NICE (Nurtured, Included, Complemented and Enhanced) project. This is a project which aims to ensure women are nurtured and included and that current services (1:1 time-limited support and group work for women in refuge and on outreach) are complemented and enhanced through the principles of self-help, mutual support and recovery. The NICE project will be led by the Volunteer Coordinator and consist of a number of volunteer-led services.
We are currently recruiting 4 Regional Integration Co-ordinators (21.6 hours) to support the delivery of a new programme under the European Union Asylum, Migration & Integration Fund (AMIF).
The overall goals of the programme are that refugees are effectively integrated into Scottish society, are able to achieve their goals and have their needs met; while communities are supported and prepared to welcome refugees and involve them in community life.
The scope of the programme is Scotland-wide and we are looking to recruit a co-ordinator for each of the following regions:
• Central Scotland (Dundee City, Perth and Kinross, Angus, Falkirk, Clackmannanshire, Stirling)
• Highlands, Islands & North East (Western Isles [Eilean Siar], Highland, Orkney Islands, Shetland Islands, Moray, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City)
• Borders (Dumfries and Galloway, Scottish Borders, South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire)
• Edinburgh and East: (City of Edinburgh, Fife, Midlothian, East Lothian, West Lothian)
You will be working with refugee-led organisations, receiving communities and faith-based groups on a variety of projects as set out in the programme. We are looking for people with either a qualification in community development or equivalent experience; or a sound understanding of the principles and practice of community development - preferably with experience of working with refugees.
In addition to a friendly, dynamic and gregarious nature, you will need excellent communication skills - both verbal and written - and the flexibility and adaptability to meet evolving needs. Good team working skills are essential as you will be operating remotely from the programme, your manager and the other regional co-ordinators.
The role is a regional one requiring regular travel throughout a designated area of Scotland for which travel expenses will be paid. A valid driving license and a car are therefore essential.
Closing Date: 5th November 2018
Interviews: to be confirmed but expected to be week commencing 12th November 2018
