Apex’s services in the Central East area (Edinburgh, Forth Valley and Fife) are now expanding.
The services Apex delivers in Central East are diverse, comprised of a range of partnerships with organisations such as DWP, Criminal Justice Social Work, Scottish Prison Service, Skills Development Scotland, and many more, supporting a range of client groups to access employment opportunities.
Key client groups supported include (ex-) offenders, prison returners, care leavers, individuals who face multiple barriers to returning to work and individuals who may be long term unemployed.
To support the Service Development Manager (SDM) who oversees these growing services and staff teams, Apex now requires a dynamic and highly organised Centre Co-ordinator to operate across the Central area.
The Centre Co-ordinator will undertake day to day project management and staff supervision, have office management responsibilities, including good IT and database management skills and will be expected to represent and promote the organisation locally and nationally. The Centre Co-ordinator will play a pivotal role in working alongside the SDM to ensure contract compliance, performance management, service and business development.
For this post you will have knowledge or experience of project management and staff supervision. Experience of working in a community environment or frontline services with vulnerable groups would be an advantage. Knowledge of the Criminal Justice System and Employability Skills Pipelines would be advantageous. The base for this post can be negotiated within the geographical area covered. It is anticipated that there will be extensive travel throughout the area, i.e weekly visits to each area, therefore a driving license and access to a means of transport is essential.
