Research Lead (volunteer)
About the Role
We are a group of students & recent graduates creating a platform for Scotland’s Refugees to share their voice through art. Through a research-driven educational campaign, we use our online presence and creative events to raise awareness in the local community about what it means to be a refugee, with the vision of a welcoming and accepting society.
We are looking for a Research Lead for our COLOURS 2019 - 2020 team. The successful candidate will be leading a team of 3-4 dedicated, skilful and highly motivated volunteers. The ideal candidate should be organised, socially driven (specifically within the issues surrounding refugee and asylum seeker integration), a good writer, and have some experience in qualitative research or journalism.
The Research Lead will work directly with the Heads and People & Research Director on planning and driving the short and long term research and knowledge development strategy for the year, and will play an important part in in shaping COLOURS' 2019-2020. The ideal candidate will bring with them ideas they are willing to share and implement, as well as experience in improving community outreach and research development.
