researcher, Scotland (intern scheme)

Glasgow, Scotland

We are looking for two graduates, or those who have gained equivalent life experience, to join our latest workplace training programme. Building on the success of our previous internship and graduate programmes, we are offering two roles based in our office in Glasgow.

We appreciate this is a difficult season for many young people and continues to be a time of major transition for the UK and wider society. This programme seeks to equip and release some of the best and the brightest talent to serve the UK church through, and beyond, this season. You will work with our team in Scotland supporting the work of the Evangelical Alliance in Scotland. This will include a range of research and analyses from public policy and legislation to the state and life of the church in Scotland all from an evangelical perspective. In addition you will contribute to our work supporting Christians to engage well in the public square.

We have designed a training programme that will incorporate content, across your time with us, from a range of contributors. This will include personal development, communications, theological input and much more. You will report to our Scotland director who will oversee and manage your workload, and you will have opportunities to develop mentoring style relationships. Successful applicants will also attend and participate in regular Evangelical Alliance prayer gatherings and engage in team-wide worship.

Based at our offices in Glasgow you will work 2.5 days (17.5 hours) per week. There will be some flexibility in working hours and these will be agreed with your line manager.

These posts are subject to an Occupational Requirement that the post holder is a committed evangelical Christian under Part 1 of Schedule 9 to the Equality Act 2010.
