Could you be our new Love Letham Project Lead?
Love Letham is a pioneering project supporting children, young people, families, local residents and organisations like Perth & Kinross Council to work together to create a shared local vision of what children and young people need to flourish, as well as a plan to deliver it.
By bringing children and communities together with decision makers we’re creating a shared roadmap that captures what matters most to people.
As we kick off the next phase of Love Letham we're looking for a new member of the team to drive the project forward.
If you're passionate about children and young people having a say in the decisions that affect them and you're great at building relationships this new role could be for you.
About the role
The Project Lead will play a key role in driving forward the Love Letham project. This project has set up a Commission and regularly convenes them to cocreate and explore wellbeing priorities, and to ensure that these wellbeing priorities are addressed and resourced locally. The ultimate goal is to deliver a wellbeing budget in Letham.
The Project Lead will support our specialist freelance associates, who are participation experts, in the running of the project. They will be responsible for building relationships with local stakeholders and liaising with the Commission and the local authority as well as booking rooms and travel, writing update reports and maintaining our website. They will ensure excellent communications with all stakeholders throughout the project. They will provide regular updates to the director and occasionally liaise with our funder.
WEAll Scotland has a strong external profile and you will represent the organisation externally, on occasion. You will support the delivery of regular Commission meetings in Letham.
You will also work closely with a new role, an Early Years Participation Lead.
