Tutor/Group Leader for Crafts Based Activities
Part time – 2.5 hours per week, Fridays 10.15am to 12.45pm
Salary: £20.99 per hour
Ecas is an Edinburgh charity, established over 100 years ago. The charity works to improve the quality of life of physically disabled people, principally in Edinburgh and Lothian promoting equality, choice and participation through its activities, befriending service and grants.
Provision of activities for physically disabled adults is one of Ecas’ core aims. Groups are likely to be of mixed ability and to have varied physical disabilities.
Ecas runs two crafts activities each week and is seeking a Group Leader/Tutor for the Friday morning crafts group. The role involves the smooth running of the craft group using the most appropriate objectives, methods and materials on a case-by-case basis with the aim of encouraging group members to take part in the activities and to become more independent in their outlook. Although some clients may choose to do painting, emphasis is on crafts based activities.
The post will interest anyone who has qualifications (or a willingness to work towards a qualification), skills and/or experience in crafts activities such as needlework, handicrafts, crochet, decorations, quilting, jewellery making, patchwork and basketwork. The successful candidate must be willing to undertake further and ongoing training as part of their professional development and as deemed appropriate to the role of Group Leader.

Please also send a covering letter (preferably 1 side, but maximum 2 sides, of A4 with minimum 11 font) making clear how you meet the skills and experience required, and saying why you consider yourself suitable for the post. Referees will not be contacted until an offer has been made and accepted.
