Community Engagement Executive
Fixed Term: Maternity Leave cover up to 52 weeks
Hours: 35 hours per week
We have an exciting opportunity for a well organised and driven individual to join our national community engagement team to cover Maternity Leave. This role involves working with four partner communities in Glasgow and Edinburgh, supporting and mentoring local Panels within to distribute funds aimed at increasing participation and well-being. You will also support a number of other Panel arrangements across central Scotland where Foundation Scotland is administering community funds.
Foundation Scotland’s community engagement team delivers a dynamic portfolio of community development and support activity across Scotland for a diverse client base, supporting communities to maximise opportunities from community based funding and support programmes. Our approach supports and empowers local people to develop their own ideas and collective strategies, often complementing or working alongside a range of third sector and public bodies at local, regional and/or national levels.
If you are a community development practitioner with practical experience in grant-making, fund distribution, facilitation and community capacity building – and you enjoy taking initiative and responsibility - then we’re keen to hear from you.
