The Scottish Flood Forum (SFF) is an independent, community-focussed charitable organisation that supports communities at risk of flooding to build resilience and help them prepare for a flood event. The SFF also provides assistance after flooding occurs, by providing support to individuals and communities to empower them to recover from the impacts of flooding – physical and emotional – as quickly as possible.
We are looking to recruit a Community Resilience Manager to develop and deliver our community resilience work across Scotland. The post holder will be home based but will be required to travel extensively throughout Scotland and able to work flexible hours. The successful candidate is likely to have strong experience of community engagement with some knowledge and understanding of flooding and its effects on communities; have a good understanding and experience of working with local government and/or SEPA and be able to build networks and work independently with little supervision.
The post is fixed term until 31 March 2016 but with a likely extension, subject to funding.
A detailed job description and details of how to apply are found on the Scottish Flood Forum website at www.scottishfloodforum.org. The closing date for applications is Monday 5th October.
