The Citizens Advice network in Scotland is the largest independent advice service in the country. Citizens Advice Scotland is a charity within this network – we act as a national organisation supporting and representing the service as a whole and the interests of citizens. At the heart of the network there are 59 individual citizens advice bureaux across Scotland, all operating as independent charities, which focus on providing support and advice directly to clients. Each of these organisations is a member of Citizens Advice Scotland.

We believe that every citizen should have access to free, impartial and confidential advice that helps them make informed decisions, whenever they need it and however, they choose to access it. Our vision is for a Fairer Scotland where everyone has the advice and information they need to realise their rights, and that the barriers to accessing those rights are effectively challenged.

Citizens Advice Scotland runs a series of national specialist services as projects which require centralised project support. You will work as an integral part of the national projects team, with your primary role being the management of relationships between our project teams and the senior management of advice bureaux across the country through proactive engagement, communication, planning and reporting with participating member organisations of Citizens Advice Scotland.

As the Project Engagement Officer, you will ensure regular collaborative communication with both external and internal stakeholders on matters relating to service delivery and reporting, service development and changes, new projects and related implementation. You will foster a member-focused culture, and support colleagues to communicate and engage members effectively on related matters.

This role offers you the opportunity to work at the heart of supporting Scotland's largest independent advice network and to make an invaluable contribution to citizen’s lives.
