Are you a real ‘People Person’ with a passion for working with local people and communities in order to build and grow individual and community resilience?
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).
SCVO is an independent charity that takes a lead role in strategic representation on behalf of the local VCS, and provides a range of development support services to sector organisations within the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell.
This important role within the SCVO Development Team builds on the work already delivered in the first year of the programme, which focuses on bringing together individuals, community groups and voluntary organisations to consider community needs and develop new projects, services or activities to address these needs; looking at new ways of building capacity and confidence amongst the most vulnerable and marginalised in our local communities and growing community resilience.
SCVO is looking for a self-confident, creative and adaptable individual, who is able to create effective engagement amongst people and communities of diverse backgrounds. The successful candidate will be a self-confident, creative and adaptable individual, likely having experience as a trainer/facilitator and who can adapt their training/facilitation style to that of their audience – delivering bespoke training and support that meets the identified needs of the audience. The individual will also be capable of developing the programme over time; working with SCVO’s Operations Manager to move it forward in response to identified needs.
Remuneration: a competitive package that includes:
- Salary: NJC SCP 25 – 28 (New Scale) (£28,785 – £31,371) pro rata plus 6% employer contribution stakeholder pension.
- Working hours: 0.6 fte on 37 hours per week (with flexible, regular out-of-hours working)
- Holidays: 28 days per annum, plus bank holidays (pro rata)
