Vacancy at Africa Centre Scotland

Wanted: someone who enjoys community work and would like to  play a crucial role in supporting people of African heritage. 

Zawadi Alba, African Women’s Choir raising awareness of the Africa Centre with a performance in West Lothian

That very brief extract from the job advert hardly does credit to the creative energy of the Africa Centre Scotland who were actively involved in an innovative dramatic event at the Scottish Parliament in May this year.  And on Thursday (19th August) Zawadi Alba women’s choir will be at Holyrood again to support the lecture by Annie Lennox during the Festival of Politics.

But back to that job vacancy. The job – a 12 month part-time post paying £7 per hour –  is for a sessional admin worker to support the ACS Project Co-ordinator. Based in Blackfriars Street, ACS runs a support service and drop in centre for Africans who live, work or visit Scotland.  The Centre also encourages African Scots to take an active part in supporting international development in Africa so the job covers a wide range of office responsibilities as well as opportunity to meet many different people.

As the advert says: ” If you enjoy working with a community based organisation and would like to become a crucial worker to serve people of the African heritage please email: and reference SAW/002 to request for an application pack.”

Applications have to be in by 25th August.
