We are Scotland’s LGBT Inclusive Education charity, founded in 2015 and incorporated in 2018. We take an educational approach to tackling the prejudice, stereotypes and stigma that can lead to homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying behaviours. Our goal is to raise awareness, increase knowledge, and foster good relations through educational inputs designed to tackle prejudice and bullying, and advance social change and equality. To achieve this; we work with national decision-makers and partners, deliver services to educators and young people in schools and communities, and develop teaching and curriculum resources. Our national campaign for LGBT Inclusive Education in schools was successful in 2018 and resulted in Scotland becoming the first country in the world to adopt such an approach. Our core work now focuses on leading on the development and implementation of this educational framework. In addition, we provide community outreach focused on increasing understanding of equalities, rights, and addressing prejudice, and we support others with the skills to amplify their voices to make social change.
Role Overview and Responsibilities
Following receipt of our first core funding grant, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an Operations Manager to liaise with Directors on the organisational design of how we operate, our culture and to embed the systems we need to grow from a volunteer charity to building a team of staff to lead on our core work.

3. Finance, Governance and Reporting
What’s in it for you?
We are determined to apply the same TIE philosophy, which motivates and guides everything we do, to our team and workplace. Rather than take a top-down approach where we make all the decisions, the successful candidate will play a central role in shaping the culture, policies and initiatives, with others on the team. This will ensure we create a thriving and exciting workplace, where employees can flourish and reach their potential. Your voice matters.
Salary:£32,000 - £35,000 per annum, paid in arrears on the last working day of each month.

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated Head of Operations and Business Development, to maintain, and where needed, develop systems and processes in the areas of finance, fundraising, communications, people management and facilities.
The post holder will support the Co-Directors on issues of governance and the Management Team on broader operational management practices. Whilst Children’s Parliament remains a small charity, our profile and programme work has grown over recent years. This growth will continue as Scotland implements the UNCRC, however, our operating platform has not grown proportionally. This new post will help address this.
