The National Confidential Forum is looking for a highly motivated individual with strong, proven, project management skills to advance the Forum’s work in delivering a range of important outcomes at a national level.

The National Confidential Forum’s role was set out in an Act of the Scottish Parliament in 2014. It is to receive and acknowledge testimony from people who were in institutional care as children. Based on testimony, the Forum will identify patterns and trends and publish a report which reflects the testimony received and makes recommendations on how to improve institutional care now and in the future.

This role would suit a highly organised individual with strong project management and strategic planning skills and outstanding attention to detail. Someone who is outcome focused and able to think creatively about stakeholder engagement and knowledge exchange aimed at maximising project impact.

This role requires strong relationship management skills as well as excellent written and spoken communication skills. It requires someone who understands the importance of confidentiality and data protection, including how to manage and handle sensitive and personal information. This role would appeal to an individual who has sound experience of project implementation and corporate functions and who values strong stakeholder engagement in delivering a range of project outcomes.
