Temporary Cover till 31 March 2019

Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) is seeking an experienced Finance & Administration Officer for an immediate start to provide cover until the end of March 2019 due to funding.

Finance and Administration Officer, 21 hours per week
£22,000 per annum pro rata (£13,200 gross), plus 7% employer’s contribution to an auto enrolment pension scheme

You will be skilled in utilising financial software and a range of office packages and will have the competence, confidence and initiative to undertake a broad range of administrative activities in a busy office environment.

For an informal discussion on the position, please call Nina Munday, FCE Manager, on 01592 645310.

Closing date for applications: Monday 10 December 2018
Please note that CVs will not be accepted.
Interviews will be held week commencing 17 December 2018.
Start date week commencing 7 January 2019.

Modern Apprenticeships

Fife Centre for Equalities is a partner provider in Accessible Fife, a Pre-Apprenticeship Academy and is hosting a Business and Administration Apprenticeship in a Communications Role. This is a fantastic opportunity for young people (16-24yr olds) with health conditions and disabilities in Fife,  please note applications are now closed for the first cohort.

To find out more information about Accessible Fife, or if you require support to complete the application, please call 01592 583142 and ask to speak to a member of staff about Accessible Fife.

Accessible Fife has been funded by Skills Development Scotland to improve uptake of apprenticeships by young people in Fife who have long-term health conditions and/or disabilities. Spaces on the Academy are reserved for people who have a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities, as defined by the Equality Act 2010.

Internships

FCE, along with Youth 1st, offered placements in 2016 to international interns in partnership with Rural Skills Scotland Ltd. FCE hosted two German interns from the Integration durch Austausch over eight weeks.
