Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) is a Scottish health charity, caring for and supporting people after stroke, or diagnosis of a chest or heart condition. We offer vital advice and information to people and their families, delivering support services in the community. We believe everyone has the right to live life to the full, so we are committed to influencing public policy to ensure those affected get the services they so badly need. Our ambition is to be Scotland’s leading organisation for community driven support for people with these health conditions.


We have a long history of funding research in our conditions and have recently launched a new research strategy laying out our priorities for Scottish-led medical research. The purpose of this post is to aid the delivery of that strategy by providing support to research grant applicants and CHSS’ research committee and to assist with the development of CHSS’s research portfolio more generally. The post holder will also contribute to other projects where information and data gathering and analysis are required.


We’re looking for someone who is detail-focused, is comfortable handling information and data and who can build and maintain good relationships with external contacts. If that sounds like you, come and join us!
