All the medics who take part in our programmes are volunteers and come from all sorts of healthcare backgrounds. There is strength in
diversity-we've all seen the consequences of violence from a slightly different perspective and are determined to reduce violence in Scotland.
Medics Against Violence are looking for a charity engagement officer.
Medics against Violence is a small Scottish charity founded by health care
professionals in 2008, our aim is to reduce violence in Scotland. We do that
through our award winning educational programmes in schools and by training
as many people as we can to spot the signs of domestic abuse and signpost
people towards support. We are based in the Violence Reduction Unit’s office
in Glasgow and we also work with them to support some of their programmes,
most notably Navigator, and events and to raise awareness of the public
health approach to violence reduction.
The MAV Charity Engagement Officer post is funded for one year initially and
extension of the contract will be dependent on future funding.
This is a great job for someone who wishes to gain experience of all aspects of
charity work. We are a volunteering based charity so working with our
volunteers will be a key part of the role. The post holder will also act as the
administrator for the organisation and will play a central role in co-ordinating
all of the charity’s activity so there will be some clerical work to help us
maintain good records and accounts. As well as organising our school and
domestic abuse programmes which are our core activity, the post holder will
get involved in marketing and PR, will create and organise fundraising events,
will work with and recruit training partners, volunteers and donors and will
prepare reports and accounts for the charity directors for submission to our
accountants and OSCR. Involvement in the Violence Reduction Unit’s events
and activities will be expected on occasion.
If you are someone who is passionate about violence prevention with excellent
organisational skills, the ability to motivate yourself and others, great
presentation and communication skills and who likes meeting people from all walks of life, this might be the job for you.
