CACE is a trusted community resource which has been operating in the Cumbernauld and Northern Corridor areas for over 30 years. We work to prevent loneliness and isolation, supporting older people and their carers to live well in the community on their own terms. We do this through a programme of activities, groups, and outings, door-to-door community transport, and a well-established befriending programme.

We are looking for someone confident and enthusiastic who shares our commitment to ensuring older people remain a valued and vibrant part of our community. Values-led, your motivation will inspire others across the community to engage with CACE’s work.

We rely on volunteers to provide a consistently high quality, person-centred service, and it’s essential that they have the very best support and training. As Engagement and Development Lead, you’ll play a key part in influencing the organisation's culture through leading our volunteering and training programmes. You’ll manage our volunteer-staffed Befriending Service, which pairs volunteers and older people seeking companionship through shared interests.

Our work is rooted in the local community, and we can only recruit excellent volunteers if we nurture our local connections. You’ll helm our community engagement work, spreading the word about what we do, reaching new pools of volunteers, inspiring fundraisers, and developing new partnerships to benefit the people we support.
