RST makes a dramatic difference to the lives of asylum seekers and refugees in Scotland, many of whom face destitution and uncertainty. . As well as providing practical support in times of need, we also raise awareness of issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees and influence public policy. Your skills and experience will have an impact for good, helping to improve the life chances of people experiencing challenging circumstances.
RST is in an exciting phase of our development, having recently been awarded significant funding to better structure the organisation, including the appointment to a new CEO role. We're in the midst of the second three-year phase of our Destitute Asylum Seeker Service and have a special focus on developing our programme of emergency financial and accommodation support. We've also introduced new programmes that help asylum seekers and refugees make connections with their new communities in Glasgow and gain experience in a work environment.
Your skills and experience as part of a motivated, friendly team, will be central to securing safety and stability for people going through the asylum process. We are looking for an experienced fundraiser who can grow our existing supporter base, securing significant donations from individuals, charitable trusts and foundations and other grant giving bodies. You will need to have great writing and relationship building skills allowing you to tell our story compellingly, sound financial acumen, the ability to run online campaigns and to juggle multiple priorities.
