The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is an independent Scottish Charity funded by a grant from the Scottish Government. Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.
The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to:
· Ensure people are at the centre, that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services.
· Support transformational change, towards approaches that work with individual and community assets, helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self-management, co-production and independent living.
· Champion and support the third sector as a vital strategic and delivery partner and foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.
The Events, Communications and Academy Co-ordinator will support the co-ordination and management of the ALLIANCE and the Academy’s programme of events and will communicate ALLIANCE programmes and activities effectively. The post holder will provide general administrative support in events and communications and Academy programmes.
You will have strong organisational and communication skills, experience of managing events and be proactive in promoting the work of the ALLIANCE and our members, together with a strong understanding of the ALLIANCE’s agenda and the ability to work as part of a wider team.
