We are currently recruiting a Regional Integration Co-ordinator (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 to support the South East region, which covers:

• City of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Falkirk, Midlothian, Scottish Borders, South Lanarkshire, West Lothian and Dumfries & Galloway.

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.
