In partnership with other refugee, asylum and homelessness organisations, Glasgow Night Shelter received a generous National Lottery Community Fund grant to support the development and implementation of a new pilot accommodation pathway and a central one-stop hub for destitute asylum seekers to access information and advice. This new post is the key to ensuring that asylum seekers are at the heart of the delivery of this project.

We are looking for someone with experience of community development and coproduction to develop and lead our participatory approach. You’ll also have experience of line management and building the capacity and confidence of your team, including volunteers. And you’ll be hands on in just getting stuff done, as well as an inspirational leader and motivator!
