At Community Food Initiatives North East we are currently looking for volunteers who can take on some key roles within our charity, focusing on developing our current structures to meet the changing needs of our disadvantaged and vulnerable beneficiaries. This includes:
We would like a volunteer to undertake a scoping exercise and participate in the costing analysis of procuring and refurbishing a vehicle. This is an ambitious project and the person(s) involved; will receive a full induction, have the opportunity to work with a friendly and professional team in a supportive environment, and work on a key project that can benefit a wide range of disadvantaged families. The project will expand the reach of our emergency provisions to support urban and rural communities across the North East of Scotland.
*Policy and Procedures Volunteer(s)
We are currently developing and affirming our policy and procedural structures to ensure everyone from our staff, volunteers and beneficiaries continue to remain safe, healthy and considered throughout our work with them. We would like a volunteer with HR experience to work with us to review and develop our policies, and review our staff salary scales and structures. This is a rewarding opportunity to develop a key need in an organisation that is central to food security in the North of Scotland.
*Health and Safety Volunteer(s)
As with all work sites that host heavy machinery, large pallets and lots of food, CFINE is a dynamic space where every day is a little different from the one before. Health, Safety and Wellbeing are central to our ethos and having an experienced volunteer who can advise, support and guide the management and staff teams on the implementation of the Health and Safety policies and other relevant legislation will be key to ensuring a safe and nurturing environment for our community. We would like someone who has experience in undertaking Health and Safety audits, and understands, or is willing to research, existing local/national policies and procedures surrounding food distribution.
*Fundraising Committee Member(s)
Fundraising is key to our work; we aim to continually innovate and expand our offering to ensure our disadvantaged communities are never left behind. We would like someone to assist on our fundraising committee to identify new ideas and opportunities to maximise local fundraising efforts, help to plan and coordinate group fundraising activities, promote fundraising events and initiatives in the local community and will commit to our vision of a UK without food insecurity and poverty.
We cannot do this critical work alone; only with the help of skilled volunteers can we continue to support our society’s most vulnerable communities and individuals during this time of crisis.
A fantastic opportunity to volunteer at an award winning charity and social enterprise. All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.

Aberdeen in Recovery (AiR) was granted Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) charitable status in March this year. We are now looking to find talented, passionate and skilled people to fill some vacant seats on our Board of Trustees to help us grow and develop our innovative and solution focused new charity. This is a unique opportunity to help lay the foundations to ensure AiR has a long-term future as a charity with solid processes in place to ensure it meets its mission of:
“To be a bridge from ‘dependence’ to ‘independence’ for the individual seeking to recover from problematic substance use and addictive behaviours”.
This is such an exciting and invigorating prospect for individuals to get involved and be participant in the tsunami of change which is now gaining momentum and being driven by “Experts by Experience” and the vibrant Lived Experienced Communities which are blossoming, not only locally but are now established as a national phenomena.
Since its conception, AiR and its members have worked tirelessly to establish and build collaborative relationships with professional services and third sector support agencies. We have consistently driven the message that individuals who have personal lived/living experience of active substance use, including Family members who have been affected by the addictive behaviours of a loved one, and the Recovery Communities they represent have something valid, essential and extremely beneficial to bring to described Recovery Orientated Systems of Care (ROSC). We can provide existing services and clinical structural systems with resources, skills and capabilities that they, no matter how much effort, time and money they invest, will never be able to offer or provide.
So, it gives the greatest of pleasure to see this is now recognised on the highest levels that “Recoverists” can productively contribute to the design, development and delivery of truly person-centred ROSC. This being evidenced by the vision, philosophy and content of the Scottish Governments “Rights, Respect and Recovery” Drug and Alcohol Strategy.
We also believe it is reaffirmed by the recent success in being granted funding from the Government’s National Development Fund, with our principle partner Alcohol and Drugs Action (ADA), for our ‘Recovery Peer Pathway’ joint two-year project. This collaborative venture will build on three years of pilot work to further establish and build proactive and productive Developmental Pathways within ADA and their Volunteer network while in synergy with AiR membership for individuals who desire to initiate change in their behaviours and outlook as they progress on their recovery journeys within, and imperatively out-with, statutory and formal support services.
We believe that the blue sky thinking behind this project categorically and emphatically fits with the expectations, outcomes and concepts of the above Government policy.
So, if you have lived experience, or a stakeholder interest, and a passion for recovery and are willing to give of yourself that another may learn, you will not find a better opportunity to indulge your appetite than from within Aberdeen in Recovery.
For more information please contact Dermot Craig, Recovery Community Development Manager at E Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel.: 01224 638342 / Mobile: 07751 213108.

The Scottish Crannog Trust is owned and operated by the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology, which is a registered charity. STUA was formed to promote the research, recording and preservation of Scotland's underwater heritage. It aims to continue its research into the rich and exciting history which still awaits discovery in Scotland's lochs.
Loch Tay is the site of pioneering archaeological investigations into the Early Iron Age (800-400BC) when as many as 17 crannogs were believed to exist around the loch. Archaeologists from the Trust have been diving to explore these since 1980. The Crannog Centre's recreated loch-dwelling at Kenmore was built as an experiment, based on excavation results from the 2,500-year-old Oakbank Crannog located off the village of Fearnan on the north shore of Loch Tay. The Centre brings the archaeological evidence to life. The Centre is an MGS accredited museum that houses a unique collection of artefacts retrieved from the loch bed. The visitor experience, delivered by a diverse, skilled, values-driven team, is seen to be sector leading.
STUA is about to embark on a new and exciting phase to achieve an ambition of more than 15 years in the making.. A recent agreement for a community asset transfer of 4 hectares of land at Dalerb, situated on the opposite shore of Loch Tay, means a new state of the art multi-million-pound museum will be built to make a world-class heritage site. The legal agreement is expected to finalised by September.
The plans are extensive and will transform the offering. The museum will attract an estimated 50,000 visitors per year and create 50 jobs.
At one end of the Tay stands the V&A Museum, while at the other end of Scotland’s most powerful river will be Scotland’s most sustainable museum, with the same ambition and potential of the V&A but, STUA believes, with a very special sense of place and belonging.
Your role will be to support the growth and development of the charity, not least in its financial systems and processes, the Board is looking for an additional Trustee with a senior-level finance background. Ideally, you would be a chartered accountant with experience in contract negotiations. Your previous professional experience can be in the private, public or third sector.
The Board meets six times a year in Aberfeldy, usually on a Monday evening, although this can be changed if necessary to attract the right candidate. You will be required to attend a majority if not all the Board meetings, although additional time will be required initially in helping the Chair, Director and two p/t financial staff devise new financial systems appropriate to a £6m development. You may also be involved in national-level negotiations with major funding organisations. Due to the time commitment required, this may be more suitable to someone who is semi or fully retired.
If you feel you have the skills required for this role and embrace the ambition and vision of this project, then please contact our recruitment team today for further information.
Please email us at email@example.com or call us on 01786 542 224 to register your interest in this role.
You are advised to get in touch well in advance of the closing date to give us time to consider your application and pre-interview the strongest applicants.
Closing Date: Sunday 9th August
Interview Dates: w/b 17th August 2020
