This weeks round up of job vacancies within the VCSE sector in Gloucestershire.

Week beginning 19 February 2024.

We're looking for a Head of Strategic Partnerships to join our team. The purpose of this new role is to strengthen the VCSE sector in Gloucestershire by identifying opportunities for strategic partnership working and developing & supporting partnerships to work together effectively.

Our aim is to position the VCSE sector in Gloucestershire to be on the 'front foot' when it comes to commissioning. We want to do this by developing collaborative partnerships that will attract inward investment and provide a viable model for local commissions. 

Our team is delighted to announce the launch of a new series of online drop-in sessions for VCSE sector groups and organisations in the county this March.

This sessions are an opportunity for individuals working in the VCSE sector to find out more about Clinical Programme Groups (CPGs) in Gloucestershire.

We're delighted to announce that VCSE sector groups & organisations across Gloucestershire will be able to continue to receive free health & wellbeing support via The Wellbeing Line until 2025.

After a successful 6-month pilot, followed by an extension in late 2023, we are continuing our partnership with The Wellbeing Line so that the sector can continue to access this service.

We're absolutely delighted to announce the launch of Gloucestershire's Volunteer Awards. 

Gloucestershire’s Volunteer Awards celebrates and recognises the outstanding contribution of volunteers within our county. Our Awards shine a light on volunteers from a range of backgrounds and life experiences who are making a difference within our communities.
