The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is an independent Scottish Charity funded by a grant from the Scottish Government. Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.

The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to:

  • Ensure people are at the centre, that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services.
  • Support transformational change, towards approaches that work with individual and community assets, helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self-management, co-production and independent living.
  • Champion and support the third sector as a vital strategic and delivery partner and foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.

The ALLIANCE is recruiting for a new Policy and Public Affairs Manager to join our Policy and Communications team.

The purpose of the role is to ensure the ALLIANCE produces high quality policy, public affairs and communications work – shaped with its members – and that the organisation, and the Health and Social Care Academy Programme, has a high profile and strong influence across a broad range of stakeholders/decision makers.

The successful applicant must be able to travel regularly throughout Scotland. A flexible approach to working hours is essential, as occasional additional hours and overnight stays will be required.
