Are you able to create effective engagement amongst people and communities of diverse backgrounds?
Are you able to be a catalyst to such interactions? …to nurture and grow individuals and groups into delivering their ideas, but then to “gracefully withdraw into the background”.
If so, you could be just the person that we’re looking for!
SCVO seeks to appoint a high-calibre, creative individual to join our Development Team who will play a key role in supporting our aims of building the capacity, sustainability and resilience of the local Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS).

The individual will also be capable of developing and growing the programme over time; working with SCVO’s Operations Manager to move it forward in response to identified needs.
