GCVS is the lead Third Sector Development Agency in the Glasgow and a key partner in Glasgow’s Third Sector Interface. We have a distinguished track record, providing leadership, co-ordination, advice, information, technical and development support to Glasgow’s Third Sector for over 40 years. Each year we work with over 1,000 voluntary organisations and community groups in Glasgow as well as key public sector partners in the city and at national level. We are a membership organisation, advocating and representing member’s interests on a wide variety of fora in Glasgow.
During the last four years GCVS has successfully developed the relatively new project – Community Connectors – which key aims are to help older people have better access to better information and, if they so wish, to help them look at what they need to live healthier and happier lives as independently as possible. The Community Connectors programme is delivered in partnership with the Glasgow & West of Scotland Housing Forum, working alongside local and citywide organisations to strengthen information links between the Third Sector, older people, carers and statutory services. The model has been rolled out in the three locality sectors within Glasgow and staff will operate from a partner Housing Association based in the community.
We are now recruiting the following post:
Reporting to, and working closely with the Community Connector Practitioner, the Programme Administrators will play a key role in the efficient running of the Community Connectors Programme.
This role extends beyond the run of the mill administrative tasks. You will be the first point of contact for the programme so the ability to liaise and communicate in a friendly, effective and informative manner with older people, their carers, colleagues, partners and stakeholders is essential for this post.
Applicants should demonstrate the ability to maintain and manipulate databases, effectively disseminate information, provide accurate and up-to-date financial records and assist with meetings, events and activities that are organised by the Community Connectors Programme team.
Further details and an application pack are available to download below or from our website or at gcvs.org.uk
Closing date for applications is Wednesday 18th September 2019.
