As our new International Collaboration Project Manager, you will be instrumental in developing international partnerships, stimulating global conversations and creating appropriate media for sharing experiences and resources. Our primary aim is to improve the impact that Carr Gomm has in Scotland by learning from others throughout the world; preferably also improving the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities throughout the world too. Your role is to make this happen.
Your expert storytelling and affinity with digital media will lead to the development of online resources that facilitate the sharing of experiences, knowledge, concepts and best practice, and as a result you will seek to champion improvements to national strategies and policies. You will influence social care policy.
This is a new and exciting role in which you will never settle for ‘good enough’ but will always prioritise effectively in an ever-changing global context. You will appreciate that there is always capacity to innovate, improve and develop in the pursuit of a more equitable society in which people can lead full and positive lives as active citizens.
Responsibilities and Success Factors
Reporting to the Senior Operations Manager, you will be responsible for delivering this International Collaboration Project. Success in this role includes:
• Establishing relationships with like-minded organisations keen to learn from each other.
• Facilitating conversations to explore together similarities and differences in concepts, approaches, methodologies and initiatives, with a view to increasing our understanding of wellbeing, ill-health and disability across cultures and contexts.
• Identify and successfully attain fundraised income to underwrite ongoing developments and costs associated with this project.
• Use the learning from this project to influence national social care policies and initiatives.
This list is by no means exhaustive; rather it gives a flavour of the joy that is possible in undertaking this multi-faceted role and delivering a positive impact. You will be responsible for all aspects of the project and therefore will need to balance immediate priorities with the self-motivation to push towards longer-term goals. You will need to enjoy working autonomously, reaching out to potential new partners, and working interdependently with other Carr Gomm teams to embed new learning.
What we are looking for...
This is a new and innovative role, and as such we do not have a template of what the successful candidate’s background, work or life experience will be. You will, however, need a diverse set of skills and leadership abilities to meet the demands of this global project, but these could be transferrable from a range of settings. We suspect that you will share our passion for change and improvement; we imagine that you will be confident, self-motivated and an articulate ambassador; and we expect that you will be creative, imaginative and tech-savvy, with a determination to learn from others.
