CERT Scotland was started by four University of Edinburgh students in 2018 and we have since grown to include more than 60 members in 2022. Our passion lies in reforming current contraceptive care and health in Scotland and after four years in Edinburgh, we are ready to expand. Therefore, we are dividing CERT Scotland into CERT Edinburgh and CERT Glasgow, with the organisation (CERT Scotland) retaining organisational decision-making and strategic powers.
CERT recruits the majority of its members around September, however there may be some positions available at other points throughout the year. The positions still available will be published on this page and linked in the application pack below. To apply fill in the application form on this page. If you have any questions about the positions don't hesitate to get in touch!
We are currently recruiting a committee for our Glasgow branch so that CERT Glasgow can begin conducting research in September. This committee will be supported by CERT's Strategic Advisor (the outgoing President of CERT Scotland) and the current leaders of CERT Edinburgh, who altogether make up the CERT Scotland Board. If you are based in Glasgow, but looking for a research or campaigns role, then keep your eyes peeled for further recruitment in September.
As an organisation, we are equally keen to hear about your professional and lived experience. CERT prides itself in allowing young people to gain professional skills in research and policy (among other things!) and can offer support through this process.
Please note these positions are voluntary/unpaid. The weekly time commitment varies between roles, but we envision an average time commitment of around 5 hours and up to 10 hours for committee positions.
If you are interested in applying, please send us an email and we can find a role that works best for you.
