Board Member

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Scotland-wide
  • Closing 11th April 2022

As Scotland prepares to welcome thousands of people fleeing the war in Ukraine, the Scottish Refugee Council has never been busier or more needed. This year our turnover will be in excess of £4M and our team will be 90 staff and 80 volunteers. We are now seeking new Board members with experience in HR, employment, finance and technology to support the governance of the organisation in this period of growth and rapid change.

As a national charity providing help and advice to people from the refugee and asylum-seeking community in Scotland and advocating for their rights, our vision is for a Scotland in which all people seeking refugee protection are welcome. We campaign for a fairer and more humane asylum system in the UK and for a better deal for people rebuilding their lives here. We coordinate the annual Refugee Festival, which takes place in June and work in close partnership with other organisations on advocacy, campaigns and service delivery. We are committed to strengthening refugee voice and influence and aim for our Board, staff and volunteers to reflect the communities we work with. We therefore particularly welcome applicants from refugee backgrounds.

As a number of Board members reach the end of their current term this year, we are seeking new members with skills in one or more of the following areas: HR, employment law, employee relations, finance and IT. In addition, we welcome applicants with a background in public affairs, communications, research, policy and fundraising. You may have learnt these skills through education, through the workplace or through voluntary work. However, a passion for the rights and welfare of refugees and a willingness to bring your experience to the role are what matter most. All new Board Members will be offered induction and mentoring support.

The Board meets 4 times a year in Glasgow and we are investing to support virtual as well as in-person attendance. You will also attend an annual Strategy Away Day and our AGM in October. You will be expected where possible to take part in one of the three sub-committees (Finance and Audit, Staffing, Strategy and Development) and encouraged to attend community and campaign events when you can. This role is unpaid but travel and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

Community Development Officer

  • Full time
  • £25,909
  • Glasgow (currently remote working)
  • Closing 14th March 2022

We are currently recruiting a full-time (36 hours per week) Community Development Officer to join our Communities Team, based in Glasgow, on a 12-month contract commencing in April 2022. Specifically, this role will focus on our approach to community learning and development. As a consequence, the role will directly contribute to two of our core strategic objectives:

  • to collaborate with refugees and refugee communities through a skills training programme; and,
  • to develop a culture of learning and evidence across the organisations.

Our approach seeks to support refugee-led and refugee-assisting groups across Scotland to engage in learning, both formal training and experiential, with a focus on bringing about change in their organisations as well as the communities they serve. By providing capacity building across the entire range of processes needed by refugee groups to attract funding; organise, deliver and evaluate their organisation, its services and projects; and learning from their and others’ experience, we endeavour to raise attainment for all, build sustainable groups and support community empowerment.

We are looking for a person with either a qualification in community development or equivalent experience; preferably with experience of working with refugees.

As this is a 12-month project you will need to make an immediate contribution to the design and development of the community learning and development approach. In addition to having a friendly, dynamic and gregarious nature, you will need excellent communication skills both face to face and electronic as well as flexibility and adaptability to meet evolving needs. Good team working skills are essential as you will be operating remotely from the refugee organisations, your manager and the other members of the Communities Team.

The contracted hours of work are to be worked over seven days and may involve evening and weekend work. You will, however, be expected to work such hours as are required for the efficient and conscientious discharge of your duties and responsibilities, for which a system of flexitime applies to this role.
