Scotland’s National Centre for Languages (SCILT) has been awarded additional funding from GLAIF to enable us to recruit a part-time Professional Development Officer for Gaelic. This is a new post and the successful candidate will be a self-starter who is able to work independently and as part of a team. The post will support the National Gaelic language Plan and the successful candidate will be expected to have the creativity and inter-personal skills to develop the role by building new partnerships and strengthening ones with existing stakeholders.
This post is for one year and is open to Gaelic speaking professionals with an interest in promoting and supporting Gaelic/Gàidhlig nationally. SCILT is based at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, however this post has considerable scope for people working in other parts of the country. The successful candidate would be expected to represent SCILT at meetings across Scotland and sometimes beyond.
Applications are welcomed from those that would like to take the role on a seconded basis.
Formal interviews for this post will be held on Thursday, 1 March 2018.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Fhiona Mackay, Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
