Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance (SIAA) is a membership organisation responsible for promoting, supporting and defending independent advocacy in Scotland. SIAA does not provide independent advocacy, its member organisations and groups do. Independent Advocacy changes lives for the better and our SIAA helps member organisations through six core functions:

  1. Representation and policy influencing
  2. Building and sharing intelligence and evaluation
  3. Information and support
  4. Organisational development and capacity building
  5. Developing and promoting good practice
  6. Creating opportunities for networking/collaboration

The CEO leads a small team based in Edinburgh and is accountable to the board of trustees. You will be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills, be able to work in cooperation with a wide range of stakeholders and motivate and inspire others. You must have experience in team management and leading, supporting and mentoring team members. If you have the vision, skills and desire to change lives, then we want to hear from you.

While the office is in Edinburgh, there may be some travel across Scotland involved. Currently the team are working from home and we anticipate a blended model of working going forward.

Further information about the role can be found in the Candidate Pack below.
