  • £27,178 – £29,977
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 3rd April 2023

  • Advertised from 16th March 2023


This Database Administrator plays an important role in helping SCIAF to reach ambitious targets for fundraising income and supporter engagement needed to deliver our vital work overseas with some of the world's poorest, most vulnerable communities. This role will focus on the following areas:

  • Data administration and cleanse
  • Production of data for supporter communications
  • Synchronising online and offline data
  • Support to system users on functionality

This role is based in our Glasgow office; although a degree of flexibility can be offered in terms of where and when this role is undertaken.

Who we’re looking for

We’re seeking someone with database experience who is proficient in data cleanse, data extraction and synchronisation. Experience of python or of another programming language, and of fundraising software would be a major advantage.

The role would suit someone who is able to think logically and has the ability to work accurately and methodically.

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 aid 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 PVG scheme membership. We would also confirm that all staff are expected to adhere to SCIAF’s Safeguarding Policy and a Code of Conduct which specifies the attitudes and behaviour that all staff are expected to maintain.
