Current Vacancies

Inspiring Scotland is recruiting for two roles to join our core team. Inspiring Scotland strives for a Scotland without poverty or disadvantage. We work with people, communities, charities, social enterprises and Scottish Government to identify and solve the entrenched social problems faced by too many people in Scotland.

In a time of widening inequality, this work is more important than ever.

This is a challenging but exciting time for Inspiring Scotland as we embark on new projects and work hard to develop our existing programmes to support more of Scotland’s people and communities.
