Do you like to work as part of a compassionate, knowledgeable, and effective team?

Would you like to use your skills to support charities and help people live independent and flourishing lives?

If so, we have a fabulous opportunity for you as a Performance and Impact Advisor (PIA) with our Support in the Right Direction (SiRD) fund team. We are looking for a full time (35 hours per week) PIA to join our small team delivering this important funding stream on behalf of the Scottish Government Social Care Directorate.

SiRD is a highly regarded, multi-year, funding programme delivering independent support for people, social care users and unpaid carers to be equal partners in their social care planning and maximise their right to ‘choice and control’ under Self-Directed Support legislation. Independent support organisations in the SiRD programme are locally based across Scotland and include advocacy organisations, Carers Centres, Centres of Inclusive Living, and other community groups.

As a PIA you will support our SiRD Fund Manager to provide high quality support for funded groups and the Scottish Government, ensuring the best impact and learning from the funding. As part of a small team you will have a varied role, from grant administration and monitoring through to communications, event planning, research, and programme development.

This position is suitable for people who like to work collaboratively, who can apply sound judgement, and have the confidence to ask questions, take the initiative and problem solve. The successful candidate will be joining a dynamic organisation focused on delivering for essential charities and dedicated to improving lives and creating positive change.
