We aim to improve life chances for children and young people in Scotland by making sure that every young person in Scotland has access to the legal advice they need and by securing the recognition and enforcement of their rights in Scots Law.
Can you help us influence law and policy affecting children and young people?
At Clan Childlaw we use what we learn from our legal work to identify how the law could work better for children and young people. Join our team as Legal Policy Officer to help coordinate and deliver our policy goals and drive change to improve outcomes for children and young people.
The Legal Policy Officer’s role is to coordinate and deliver legal policy outcomes relating to child law and children’s rights. You will work with policy team and solicitor colleagues to identify and influence changes to law and policy to improve outcomes for children and young people.
You will be based in our Edinburgh office, with occasional work from our Glasgow office as required, and, as necessary, other parts of Scotland.
Thanks to funding from National Lottery Community Fund we are looking for a Project Coordinator to help us set up and run an innovative partnership project between Clan Childlaw and Shelter Scotland which will assist, empower and support young people (aged up to 26) and families with children in the Edinburgh-area who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness so they can enforce their rights, take control of their lives and work towards achieving lasting change.
We are looking for someone who is motivated by the challenges of building on the success of our pilot and delivering outreach services and who is at their best working with others to help them solve problems and reach goals. We want to work with someone who is dependable, adaptable, cooperative, approachable and perceptive, with an understanding of young people and the issues they face.
The project aims to launch on September 30th 2019 and start accepting referrals in October 2019.
