If so, we want to hear from you. Join our vibrant team of staff and volunteers delivering high quality services to ensure that Scotland is the best place to grow up for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex young people.

We are passionate about equalities at LGBT Youth Scotland.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be at the forefront of the biggest piece of research in Scotland on LGBT young people, cutting across many aspects of their lives. This research will influence policy and strategy at the highest level.

  • Play a central role in developing our research ‘Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People’
  • Review previous iterations of the research and work across teams to ensure questions are user friendly and accessible
  • Analyse collected data and report the key findings, and work with the team to input to the next published report
