An opportunity has arisen at the Poverty Alliance to carry out research with people living on low incomes in Scotland as part of our Get Heard Scotland project. This project works with people living on low incomes and community organisations to understand what works and what needs to change to help address poverty. During the pandemic there is a greater need than ever to ensure that we heard the experience of people living on low incomes.
We are looking for an individual with a track record in conducting qualitative research, particularly action research working with people with experience of poverty. The successful applicant will possess a sound understanding of issues around poverty and of anti-poverty strategy at local and national levels in Scotland.
