SCVO has an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to take their first steps into policy. If you are highly organised, analytical, and passionate about opportunities to influence change, we'd love to hear from you.

This new post will provide support to our Policy, Campaigns and Research teams: organising events, drafting comms and helping to keep us generally organised. In return, we will support the Policy Assistant to develop an understanding of the policy environment, and the core policy skills needed to contribute to our external influencing work.

If you have the skills and experience needed to support us, and can demonstrate the desire to develop policy skills to support Scotland's vibrant voluntary sector, this may be the opportunity you've been looking for.

As we anticipate a high level of interest in this post, both essential and desirable criteria will be used for shortlisting. Please ensure that your application shows clearly how you meet these criteria.
