About this Role

A PVG check will be undertaken as part of the selection process.

This is an exciting and new role at Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis (GCRC) to lead the development of our data gathering tools and insights and analysis approach, leaning on robust and systemic capture of information from workers, survivors, partners, and supporters. GCRC serves a population of 1.2 million people, and around 625,000 women and girls across six local authority areas of Glasgow, East and West Dunbartonshire, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire.

As we now progress into the second year of our ambitious strategic plan, this role will support the continued and successful expansion of our services for survivors and partners. Working with an established team of Service Managers, the post holder will support a newly appointed Deputy Director with the mapping of data gathering needs, the development of tools, and fulfilling the schedule for delivering the analysis and presentation of insights. These are required for monthly reporting internally, governance reporting quarterly, one-off issue-specific reports, and ongoing external reporting for funders and to support external communications, annual performance reports, policy activity, and campaign priorities.
