Close the Gap is hiring!

We’re looking for an enthusiastic person to work on an exciting new project to develop and pilot an Equally Safe employer accreditation programme. Equally Safe is Scotland’s violence against women strategy which recognises that violence against women is a cause and consequence of gender inequality, and that tackling women’s labour market inequality will reduce violence against women.

Committed to women’s labour market equality, you’ll be working within our small, busy team to develop and pilot an innovative employer accreditation programme. You’ll be working to influence employers to participate in the pilot to improve their equalities practice and advance women’s equality in the workplace. You’ll also be developing materials, writing reports and gathering data to support the effective delivery of the pilot.

There's some further information on the role below, including closing and interview dates, and a link to the application pack.
