CELCIS is a leading improvement and innovation centre in Scotland, based at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. We improve children's lives by supporting people and organisations to drive long-lasting change in the services they need, and the practices and skills applied by people responsible for their care. Our focus is on children and young people in need of care and protection and actively working to help realise The Promise of the recently concluded Independent Care Review.

This new role will work at the heart of CELCIS and support the CELCIS Strategic Management Team to ensure CELCIS continues to strengthen its learning offer both internally and externally to the child care sector.

We are evidence-based and practice-focused, and the successful candidate will provide leadership in the development of CELCIS learning offers, including the design, delivery and deployment of creative, strategic learning opportunities online.

CELCIS is looking for an experienced professional to be the strategic lead for CELCIS learning and development offers, identifying the learning needs and support needs of practitioners and partners across the children’s sector, and then working in collaboration to address those needs in effective, evidence-informed ways. You will be experienced in identifying business opportunities and you will know how to ensure that any new prospects have fidelity with the overall strategic direction of CELCIS.

The successful candidate will be based within the Central Services Hub and will be responsible for and contribute to a range of strategic and operational learning projects/deliverables.

You would be based at home until CELCIS and the University has ensured it is safe and essential to work in the office (which is based in the Curran building at the University of Strathclyde).
