Can you help the people of Scotland to have their voices heard by the Scottish Parliament’s committees?

Working in one of the most influential places in Scotland, and as part of the newly formed Committee Engagement Unit (CEU), you will take the lead on specific projects or activities to support committees. These could include innovative, participative or digital engagement activities or developing more effective ways to plan and evaluate engagement or give feedback to citizens who have engaged with committees.

Your creativity and flexibility will play a vital role in developing public participation to improve committees’ scrutiny of policy and legislation. You will have a track record of delivering successful engagement initiatives and projects which have led to improved outcomes. Your ‘can do’ attitude will be key in delivering the types of participatory engagement activities that can help shape the scrutiny work of the Parliament.

Full information regarding the post and including how to apply is available in the recruitment pack.
