This key position is responsible for ensuring that Christian Aid Scotland’s advocacy and policy work, and our work in the youth and education sphere, contributes effectively to achieving that goal and ensures coherence and synergy with the wider organisation. The post leads in developing and managing key relationships with our sponsoring churches, the Scottish Government, MSP’s and other justice-seeking coalitions, thus reinforcing and enhancing our position as a credible and preferred partner.

You have proven experience building constructive working relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders and have a deep knowledge of the political landscape of Scotland. You bring a knowledge of broader policy debates around international development, poverty eradication and the broader enabling environment for civil society. You have significant experience managing a team and excel in empowering people.
