Salary expectation: £34,877 to £40,022

Application deadline: Wed 31st July

This is a full-time role

Working across third sector organisations you will build and maintain relationships to input to policy and influencing, both as SWA as well as jointly with others. You will maintain good working relationships with civil servants, challenging ideas and find solutions where necessary.

The role includes inputting to and submitting consultation responses, researching and writing briefings, preparing for SWA to providence evidence in parliament, keep our communications team up to date with policy inputs and changes, and input to good practice stemming from policy changes. All of these roles, requiring great working relationships across the organisation, but especially with Membership and Training.

We’re looking for someone with experience in a similar role, with specific knowledge of the Scottish policy landscape and the potential that offers. We’re looking for someone who can work across domestic abuse related topics – examples including economic abuse, child contact, the welfare system. We ask that you re a self-starter, ready to apply these skills creatively to meet our strategic priorities.  Excellent written and verbal communications skills go without saying: you’ll be skilled in the ability to engage confidently with a range of different audiences, and be adept at writing to suit them, working alongside colleagues across SWA and our members across the country.

Deadline: Wed 31st July
