The Iona Community is a faith based organisation working towards justice and peace. It was founded in Glasgow and Iona in 1938 by George MacLeod, minister, visionary and prophetic witness for peace, in the context of the poverty and despair of the Depression. From a dockland parish in Govan, Glasgow, he took unemployed skilled craftsmen and young trainee clergy to Iona to rebuild the monastic quarters of the mediaeval abbey, sharing skills and effort as well as joys and achievement. That task became a sign of hopeful rebuilding of community in Scotland and beyond. The experience shaped – and continues to shape – the practice and principles of the Iona Community to address poverty, work for justice and peace, and protect the environment.
Iona Community has a vacancy for an Executive Director, one half of the leadership duo that manages the Iona Community. The Executive Director and Leader of the Iona Community are equal partners, with the ED responsible for developing and implementing the business plan that will deliver the Community’s recently agreed strategic vision.
The key responsibilities include to:
· Develop and implement an ongoing commercial strategy, fundraising plan and oversee donor support.
· Work with the Leader and Council to guide and develop the Community’s strategic planning.
· Overall responsibility for the finances, in consultation with the Leader and the Finance Team.
· Shared annual revenue budgetary responsibility of £1.4 million.
· Attend Council and Community Resources Committee meetings.
The successful candidate should have senior management experience, experience of financial management and the ability to think and plan strategically.
SEPA is happy to consider flexible work arrangements and we proudly use the “Happy to Talk Flexible Working” logo on all our job vacancies. If you want to work part-time or through some other flexible arrangement, we strongly encourage you to apply.
Every day SEPA works to protect and enhance Scotland’s environment, helping communities and businesses thrive within the resources of our planet. We call this One Planet Prosperity.
Our statutory purpose is clear, that we need to create environmental success in ways that, as far as possible, also create social and economic success. The two core services we deliver for the people of Scotland are regulation and flood risk management and we have established a radical strategy for how we’ll drive change - One Planet Prosperity.
Great communication is integral to the delivery of this strategy. We recognise that a world-class environment protection agency requires world-class communications that inspire confidence in SEPA, its strategy, services and people through clear, strong, innovative and collaborative communications.
To do this we will make great communications an integral part of the role each one of our people plays across the organisation.
Working closely with the Head of Communications, the successful candidate will drive SEPA’s Digital Communications activity, supporting the ‘Communicating One Planet Prosperity’ communications strategy and annual operating plan within a fresh, dynamic and fast paced Communications & Marketing Unit.
Working across a series of teams, you’ll be responsible for a series of digital communication programmes including a web refresh project and channels including SEPA websites, microsites, social media channels and new Sharepoint intranet.
You’ll do so against the backdrop of a global health pandemic, where the organisation is following home working requirements. You’ll also do so in a period where the organisation is recovering from a significant cyber-attack.
Working as part of the wider team you’ll support a 24/7, 365 days per year out of hours digital and communications rota, with the availability to drive and travel, including out of hours as required (subject to COVID restrictions).
Does this sound like you? If so, we would love to receive your application.
Does your extensive experience of web publishing include using content management systems and producing high quality content for a variety of fast-paced projects? Then join Shelter Scotland in the brand new role of Web Content Editor and you could soon be making the most of your skills at the heart of our Digital team.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
