Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) is a pioneering, internationally-praised collaboration, designed to improve how international human rights are implemented in practice in Scotland.
This strategic development role will be responsible for establishing and leading a new independent Secretariat for SNAP, setting it on a sustainable and effective footing with strong governance and effective ways of working.
Working closely with people affected by human rights issues and senior leaders from government, the public sector and civil society, the role will also coordinate collective work to develop, refine, prioritise and begin to implement SNAP actions.
The role is funded by the Scottish Government for an initial period of 9 months, with the possibility of extension. The role is currently employed and hosted by the Scottish Human Rights Commission. This is an interim arrangement for the duration of the initial contract.
