About us!

The Marie Trust is a homeless charity based in Glasgow founded in 2009. We have a wide range of services designed to meet the needs of people who experience homelessness and those who are at risk. The culture of the charity has always been to emphasize access and responsiveness to immediate and longer-term need

We provide open access and no referral to the wide range of services we provide. Our Not-for-Profit Café Service is a Healthy Living Plus Award service that provides a gateway to a wider range of services for the people we support to Crisis Intervention, Counselling, Education, Volunteering, and Health Care  

The role!

We are looking for an experienced leader in adult education who can take the reins of established community education service and take it forward to the next level. You must be an excellent communicator and be able to build strong working relationships with our partners and develop new partnerships to widen access to education for the people we support.  

  • Excellent organizational skills are essential
  • Have a can-do approach/self-starter and be able to seize opportunities and take them forward.
  • Be educated to a degree level, or equivalent in one of the following areas: Health, Social Care, Psychology, Adult Education, or Community Education.
  • Experience in teaching, designing, and assessment of accredited and/or non-accredited courses in one of the social care curriculum areas
  • Experience in managing workload effectively and producing written reports is essential

 

This can be a challenging but hugely rewarding role, candidates should demonstrate a commitment to a non-judgemental and person-centered practice.  Many of the people we support are affected by addiction, offending, mental ill-health, and repeated homelessness. The role requires empathy, understanding, and an ability to see a way forward and be proactive in helping vulnerable adults through the challenges they face.
