Project Manager

St Rollox Community Outreach Project

The outreach to asylum seekers and refugees at St Rollox began in the year 2000 when Glasgow was one of the first cities in the UK to welcome and house those newly arriving in the UK.

Over the years asylum seekers and refugees along with local residents have come to St Rollox for practical and spiritual support.

The Project operates from St Rollox Church in Sighthill. The church has recently moved into a new building due to the regeneration of Sighthill.

This provides the opportunity to not only maintain existing outreach services, but to also develop new services to reach out within the emerging local community.

You will lead a strong committed volunteer team who deliver our services and support.

Existing services include Destitution support, an Advice service, a Sewing class and an ESOL class.

All Project activities and manager’s salary are dependent on securing external funding which is one of the responsibilities of this post.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic the Project is at present not operating from the church building. Activities such as ESOL and a Craft group are currently being conducted via Zoom. It is hoped to gradually restart activities in line with Scottish Government guidelines. It is envisaged that some of the opportunities for on-line activities will continue as we restart.

The current Project Manager will retire in early 2021. We are seeking to recruit someone to lead and develop the Outreach Project.

Hours: 30 hours per week. Flexibility required for occasional evening and weekend work.

Salary: £18K-£19K                          

Holidays: 5 weeks per annum
