At a time of unprecedented challenges for low income families across Glasgow this is an exciting opportunity for someone with experience of strategic planning, partnership working and negotiation to play a lead role in supporting action to tackle child poverty in the city. With over one in three of Glasgow’s children living in poverty even before the coronavirus crisis, you will work closely to support partners in the council, health board and wider public, private and voluntary sector to develop, deliver and report on actions that will substantially help reduce the risk of poverty.

You will have a good understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions to child poverty and the role local government and health boards can play. You will also have excellent written, verbal and presentation skills and the ability to work with a range of people in different organisations and roles, including people with direct experience of poverty or other forms of exclusion and disadvantage, to identify, agree and deliver shared goals.

This post is funded by the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP). You will be part of the CPAG in Scotland team, but work closely with the Health and Social Care partnership, city council, health board and other local partners

This post may be suitable for secondment with the agreement of the existing employer.

CPAG wants a society where all children can enjoy their childhoods and have fair chances in life to reach their full potential. Come and help us end child poverty for good.
