Passionate about making a difference? A believer in using evidence to help make a bigger difference?
We are looking for a Senior Analyst to join our Evaluation and Research team, to help our clients in the charity and public sectors to understand, articulate and improve their impact. This is an opportunity to work in a small, committed team supporting organisations such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Lloyds Bank Foundation, BBC Children in Need, British Heart Foundation, Versus Arthritis, Mind and Missing People. We need someone who can work magic with quantitative data and also loves getting out into the field to conduct qualitative research. We’re all home-based, so you’ll need to be comfortable with the discipline which that requires, and be happy with working under your own steam – but you won’t be abandoned, we all keep in close touch with calls and frequent get togethers.

Location: Home based, with IT to support virtual working.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with the right values to join the Association’s Maintenance team.
The successful applicant will be expected to carry out cyclical refurbishing work across the Association’s projects and services.
Main duties include:
• Preparation painting/papering
• Laying laminate flooring

We are looking for relational, child-centred, and motivated individuals to be part of an effective team that supports and monitors Safeguarders, works with partner agencies and delivers all other operational tasks associated with Safeguarder appointments.
The Safeguarders Panel Team at Children 1st is now established as an integral feature of the Children’s Hearing landscape. We have recently been successful in winning the new contract for the Safeguarder’s Panel Team until at least June 2022 (potentially 2024). Children 1st is contracted by Scottish Government to assist Scottish Ministers with the management, operation and monitoring of the national Safeguarders Panel.
In the role of Support Manager, you will work directly with Safeguarders to support them to work to our Practice Standards, and contribute to the shared vision of best practice - an excellent, transparent, accountable and respectful service for children and young people.
You must have a working knowledge of the Children’s Hearing System, an understanding of child development and an ability to support people in a challenging role. You will:
· support and monitor a cohort of Safeguarders using our performance and support monitoring framework
· work with other team members to ensure the day to day operation of the service
· build relationships with partners in your region
Safeguarders are located across all areas of Scotland and the post will require working out with normal office hours, and potentially travel and overnight stays. However, Children 1st operate a time off in lieu system to accommodate the flexibility required by the role and you will enjoy a generous annual leave entitlement.
This is a full time, 35-hour/week fixed term post, starting as soon as possible and funded initially until 30 June 2022.
Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland (CBINS) is a grassroots, volunteer-led, educational charity dedicated to opening up the conversation about Basic Income in Scotland. We are at an exciting point of organisational growth and we are looking to build our board to support this.
CBINS runs well attended monthly meet-ups in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our volunteer team is growing rapidly and we are getting ready to start delivering training for Basic Income advocates across Scotland. We work with organisations to help them engage with the Basic Income conversation. We organise the Parliamentary Cross Party Working Group on Basic Income to provide a forum where citizens, stakeholders and policy makers can engage in well-informed and open-minded discussion about Basic Income. In April 2019 CBINS launched exploring Basic Income in Scotland at the Scottish Parliament, which was a collaborative project for the Scottish Universities Insight Institute that looked at Basic Income and a variety of intersecting issues.
As a Trustee you will have a crucial role in defining CBINS’ strategy for 2020 and beyond, including helping to bring the global Basic Income Earth Network Congress to Glasgow in 2021. Your role as trustee will be fundamental to shaping this congress and definitively putting Scotland at the forefront for Basic Income globally.
The role of CBINS Trustee would suit anyone committed to social justice and supporting this grassroots movement educating people about what would be a truly transformational policy.
We are looking for a variety of particular skill-sets to support our work but we are keen to hear from anyone that would like to lend their time, expertise or networks. In particular we are looking to recruit to the role of:
