Scottish Cycling is the National Governing Body for cycle sport in Scotland. We are the voice of our sport and the largest cycling membership organisation in Scotland, representing the aspirations of our community.
We have recently launched our new strategy, Developing a Nation of Cyclists, which details our mission, vision and values and outlines how we will deliver activities across our four strategic themes of Lead, Grow, Support and Partner.
The Club Development team at Scottish Cycling are a friendly bunch, we pride ourselves on being inclusive, listening and learning from our community, and working hard to support our membership work towards their goals in cycling.
We are delighted to be recruiting six part-time Club Development Coordinators. These posts will work closely with our clubs, developing relationships, collaborating, and supporting them to achieve their success. Initially working from home, but regionally based, these roles will also lead on regional activity to ensure that we are able to support development across Scotland.
We are looking for great people who have a passion for getting people active, and who are aware of the positive impacts that brings, both physically and mentally. We will provide the required training to carry out this role successfully and you will be supported in your ongoing development.
This is a fixed hour post with varied flexible working hours. Please see the job description for further details. This post has a regional remit, however attendance at meetings and events outside of the region is to be expected.
Scottish Cycling is committed to selecting staff solely on the basis of their ability to do the job for which they are being recruited and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
The Centre was set up in 2018, in response to the need for an independent voice to champion the better use of rigorous evidence in preventing and tackling homelessness in its widest sense, going well beyond rough sleeping. The work therefore involves both policy and practice, and working with a range of other organisations and perspectives: we will only achieve our goals by drawing on the expertise both of academics and of people with lived experience of homelessness themselves, and by securing change in both policy and practice across a range of services, ie not just the “homelessness sector” itself.
To complement the skills and experience already on the board, we are looking particularly for members with the following attributes:
In addition, we are keen to strengthen the diversity of the board in a number of ways, to ensure we have as wide a range of perspectives as possible to make for better decisions:
We are looking for board members with the following qualities:
If you would like to help shape and drive an organisation which is starting to make a real impact on one of the major challenges of our time, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Key Support Worker
National Service: Supporting Families Bereaved Through Crime
Our mission at Victim Support Scotland is to ensure that those affected by crime receive high quality support that will help them to recover from their experiences. We want victims and witnesses to be at the heart of everything we do so they have improved health and well-being, feel safer, more secure and informed and that we are an effective organisation, that makes a lasting difference. We aim to do this by adhering to our own organisational values of being supportive, striving for excellence and offering personalised and accessible services and these are reflected in the behaviours expected of all staff and volunteers.
To help achieve this mission, VSS have designed implemented a new National Service: Supporting Families Bereaved by Crime from 1st April 2019.
As a member of this team and reporting to the National Co-ordinator, the role of Key Support Worker will be to provide comprehensive support to families bereaved by murder or culpable homicide. This will involve providing structured social support, practical support, information, liaising with other justice and community organisations, supporting the family as they interact with the criminal justice system and helping them to reach a new balance in their lives after trauma.
You will play a key part in the ongoing evaluation, development and improvement of the service. You will work closely with Police Scotland and representatives from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
As this is national role travel to all parts of the country will be required in order to support families at appropriate locations to best meet their needs. This may involve travelling out of hours with limited access to public transport. A current, clean driving licence is therefore essential to the post.
The base for the team is in Glasgow, and whilst all VSS employees are working flexibly at the moment, it should be noted that to support the implementation, development and delivery of the national service, it will be a requirement of the role to attend the Glasgow office at times.
This post will be subject to a satisfactory PVG check
