Since 2008, Clan Childlaw has provided specialist outreach legal representation services for children and young people in Scotland. With a team of skilled and experienced lawyers, Clan has witnessed first-hand situations where broad changes to a law or policy (and its implementation) would help improve outcomes for children and young people.

Clan aim to improve the life chances of the children and young people across Scotland by ensuring they have access to the legal advice they need as well as securing the recognition and enforcement of their rights in Scots Law. They do this through their work in representation, learning and development, and policy. Clan Childlaw believes children and young people should have the opportunity to express their views freely in all matters concerning them and have the opportunity to be heard and represented in any judicial and administrative proceedings affecting them. They also believe children and young people in need of legal advice and legal representation should be able to have a lawyer of their choice as well as knowing their rights with access to information and guidance about their rights, how to exercise them and how the law affects them. Clan are passionate about the law protecting and strengthening the rights of children and young people under the UNCRC.

Following a sustained phase of growth, Clan Childlaw aims to consolidate its position to ensure continuity of service delivery. As an organisation, Clan will work to #KeepThePromise and play their part in driving change identified in the Independent Care Review in Scotland. They will also work to strengthen their foundations to ensure continuing service delivery and this will be underpinned by the implementation of a new fundraising and finance strategy. This new strategic approach will build financial support for their work through a variety of sources including self-generated fundraising income.

Due to its growth, Clan Childlaw are recruiting a new Impact and Evidence Lead. This candidate will work closely alongside colleagues across all of Clan Childlaw’s departments to measure and help them communicate the impact of the work they do. This is enormously important and plays an integral part in supporting the team, securing new funding, and raising awareness of our impact to wider audiences.

The Impact and Evidence Lead is a key member of the team who enables Clan Childlaw to demonstrate their impact and create a data-driven culture across all delivery and reporting in the organisation.

To be successful within this role you will be comfortable supporting colleagues across different teams, as well as external stakeholders in how to use data, internal systems, and data insights to help showcase Clan Childlaw’s impact. You will also be happy to take responsibility for leading on streams of work to improve their monitoring and evaluation framework and understand the importance of visualising impact for different audiences.
