Who we’re looking for

We’re seeking a self-starter, happy to work across teams and with a number of outside bodies. You’ll have good communications and digital skills and be happy in front of an audience or talking to MPs, MSPs, etc. As a small team, we are looking for a high-performing individual with initiative and enthusiasm, someone flexible and responsive, who can use creativity and strong problem-solving skills to help us reach our goals.

As an inclusive employer, we want our staff team to reflect the communities in which we live and work. We therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community.


SCIAF is the official overseas relief and development agency of the Catholic Church in Scotland. Our mission is to enable the poorest to lift themselves out of poverty and work together to protect our common home, help people recover from disaster, and inspire people in Scotland to put their faith into action. SCIAF works in partnership with local and church organisations, supporting communities across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to bring about lasting change. We reach out to those in need, regardless of age, race or religion and believe in supporting the whole person, including their spiritual wellbeing, political voice, cultural and community life.


SCIAF undertakes to ensure that all staff, volunteers and relevant others, whose work might involve contact with children and/or vulnerable adults, will have completed additional recruitment procedures and have obtained a satisfactory PVG Check from Disclosure Scotland. We would also confirm that all staff are expected to adhere to a Code of Conduct which specifies the attitudes and behaviour that all staff are expected to maintain.
