CELCIS is looking to recruit a confident and knowledgeable child rights/welfare professional, to help shape and deliver their international work: securing the global implementation of the UN Guidelines for Alternative Care, and realising children’s rights through developments in policy, systems and practice.
In the role, you will build and maintain strong, productive relationships with international agencies, developing partnerships which enable the funding and delivery of CELCIS international projects. You will be educated to degree level (or have equivalent professional experience) and bring your experience of effective project management to oversee projects, ensuring their approach is informed by the best evidence, their activity completed to time and budget, and their impact assessed and learnt from. You will also use your knowledge of practice and international policy to inform research, knowledge exchange and policy-influencing activities, all aimed at improving the experiences and outcomes of children who are at risk of being placed in alternative care, or who are living in alternative care. Taking the evidence generated through their work, you will use your stakeholder, facilitation and communication skills to ensure that it is reflected in debate and development work internationally.
As part of the Development & Innovation Hub, you will be part of a team working to seek out and secure opportunities for impact, insight and income generation, in Scotland, the UK and across the world. You will work closely with the CELCIS International Lead and the wider international team, translating the CELCIS international strategy into action, and helping to cement CELCIS’ international profile and credibility.
Application deadline is 6 July 2018.
