Established in 1999, The Pavillion (Greater Easterhouse) is a community youth organisation that provides a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for young people from primary 1 upwards, with most activities having historically focused on children and young people aged up to 18 but now with an increasing focus on whole family, whole community activities. Everything that we do aims to inspire our participants, raise their aspirations, help them to address the challenges that they face and encourage their development as young people.

The core of Pavillion’s service offer is a drop-in service for Mini’s, Junior’s, and Senior’s. While attending these sessions, young people take part in a wide range of engaging and developmental activities including issue-based workshops, sports, team building, games, STEM activities, art, music, and IT related activities. Specific additional projects are then developed around this core. For example, our peer wellbeing programme for young people allows young people to discuss their mental health and wellbeing and to support each other through a network of peers.

We also place a strong focus on attainment, helping young people to demonstrate what their development, through Youth Achievement / Dynamic Youth Awards, Community Achievement Awards, Saltire Awards and Youth Access units at Kelvin College.

Purpose of Job

The Business Development Manager in partnership with the community and staff will be responsible for developing and leading the business development strategy for the organisation.

The Pavillion needs a long-term plan. We have a small facility and a large catchment and an ever-increasing waiting list of families who need access to the service. We need to look at options for premises going forward. New build? Development on the current site or is it taking over an unused building in the community?

We also need to develop new income streams which lessen our need for grant funding.

We think this is a fantastic opportunity for someone with the correct skills and enthusiasm to make a real difference in a community despite having to deal with enormous issues, still has the drive and determination to succeed as individuals and a community. This well not be easy but it will be rewarding. In a world were there is so much darkness, this will be a beacon of light
