RISE is a partnership between Barnardo's Scotland and Police Scotland to develop and deliver a Scottish Child Exploitation (CE) Advisor network that will draw on the skills, knowledge and intelligence of key agencies and provide a coordinated response to CE.

We are looking to recruit a CE Advisors covering the East of Scotland. Post holders will be co-located within Police Scotland's National Child Abuse Investigation Units and will be required to engage across a number of the 14 Divisions within Scotland.
