The details of the project and how it should be progressed will be discussed with the project lead but we envisage that the successful intern will coordinate an assessment of the impact of the outcomes on equalities groups to ensure the strategy will promote equity and fairness by meeting the specific needs of all users of the justice system. To carry about a robust impact assessment, the intern would be expected to draw from the relevant evidence base and liaise closely with key stakeholders, policy officials and other analysts.
The successful intern would work within Justice Analytical Services at the Scottish Government. They will be working closely with a Principal Researcher, as well as a supportive and engaged policy team. The main output will be an accessibly written and concise report and possibly an on-line presentation of the key findings.
