Organiser - Maternity Leave Cover - Fixed Term Contract

(Based in Edinburgh)  

£43,362 per Annum + Car + Pension Benefits

This fixed term post will be based in central Edinburgh and involves the recruitment and retention of Institute members with emphasis on the integration of probationers and newly qualified teachers. Additionally, the Organiser will support activities aimed more broadly at developing member engagement such as CPD events, training of activists and campaigning, and will undertake some casework at establishment level.

The fixed term post is to cover for the maternity leave of the existing post holder. It is envisaged that the period of employment will commence on or around 10 August 2020 (subject to the successful candidate's availability) and end on 26 February 2021.

In the event that the period of maternity leave is shorter than envisaged, the fixed term contract may be terminated at any point with 30 days' notice.

Applications from candidates with a background in education are particularly welcome, as are those from candidates with previous or current involvement in a trade union.

The EIS will accept applications for this post which are based on secondment from an existing employer.

As a trade union employer, the EIS is committed to the principles of social justice and equality. We therefore welcome applications from women and men of all ages; black and minority ethnic people; disabled people; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, to work with us.

Please send completed application forms by email to Lisa Butchart. CVs will not be accepted. Applications close on Thursday 16 July 2020.
