Apex Scotland has been awarded 3 year funding from The Robertson Trust to become one of its ‘Partners in Change’, (press release found here: https://www.therobertsontrust.org.uk/news-and-blogs/2-4-million-awarded-to-ambitious-projects-tackling-poverty-and-trauma-in-scotland/ )
As a Partner in Change, Apex will lead a live action research project in partnership with Resilience Learning Partnership, a psychotherapist, a doctorate level researcher and the University of Dundee, to embark on a journey to understand how Apex can be classified as an authentically ‘trauma informed’ and ‘trauma responsive’ organisation.
We now require a motivated, insightful and passionate individual to join our management group to support us through this journey.
- Do you have leadership skills which can be used to co-ordinate both people and learning?
- Do you have a passion for research and the impact research findings can have?
- Do you want to better understand what it means to deliver trauma informed practice and to make a commitment to that?
- Do you have the capacity to ‘think big’ with a deep understanding of ‘impact’ in all its forms?
If you can answer YES to all of these questions then we would love to hear from you!
This role will support the strategic priorities and operational delivery of Apex Scotland.
The role will have a national (Scotland wide) remit while the focus of the work for year 1 of the project will be in Clackmannanshire.
Apex Scotland currently offers employees a hybrid working policy whereby we offer the option to use home as a working base.
