Role

CJS are recruiting for a Commissioning Grants Officer. This is a new and crucial role within the Commissioning Team. You will contribute to the grant process currently underway as part of the recommissioning of voluntary throughcare funding and support transition to a business as usual model of grant management of the fund recipients. The role includes working with the Head of Commissioning supporting the assessment of funding applications along with the finalisation process between the fund recipients, CJS and Scottish Government and contributing to transition to the new service. You will also be involved in the oversight, monitoring and evaluation of the voluntary throughcare grant. In time you will also support a recommissioning process for the voluntary throughcare grant and contribute to CJS’ vision for strategic commissioning in community justice.

We believe that smart justice based on the best evidence of what works will prevent offending, repair lives and improve communities. We want Scotland to be the safest country in the world. You will work in a small team supporting the wider CJS teams. We are looking for a candidate that can build relationships, gather and collate data and identify patterns and trends.
