During the last six years GCVS has successfully developed the Community Connectors project which provides older people better access to information and, if they so wish, supports them to access 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.
Reporting to the senior Client Liaison Officer, and working closely with the Community Connectors Practitioners, the Client Liaison Officers 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.
