Inspiring Scotland is a registered Scottish charity and one of the world’s largest venture philanthropy organisations. We support over 360 charities across 16 social-impact funds, manage over £30m of charity grant-making per annum and have 49 full and part-time employees.

We are currently recruiting a full-time Performance and Impact Advisor to support charities funded through Scottish Governments Promoting Equality and Cohesion Fund (PECF) to effectively deliver and report on funded projects. As a critical friend you will oversee project payments and monitoring and coordinate additional capacity building support.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with programme management experience to work directly with a range of essential charities supporting their innovation, development, and performance. You will be contributing to an exciting new Scottish Government programme that has ambitions to support the creation of an inclusive Scotland, free from unlawful discrimination and which protects and realises the human rights of everyone.
