The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland is delighted to announce that it has received a major donation in the form of a legacy from Mr Keith Morgan – physicist and engineer – who died in August 2016. The gift, to a value of over £700,000, is directed at the establishment of a Research Scholarship in support of a student studying for a PhD in Botany at one of the Scottish universities.  

Following the restructure of its grantmaking activities and the implementation of a new Customer Relationship Management system (CRM), the Carnegie Trust is opening up an opportunity for a Data and Contact Administrator to support the following areas: a) administration of the Trust’s contact database, b) recruitment of Research Assessors (who review grant applications) and c) development of an Alumni network.

Reporting directly to the Trust’s Manager, the ideal candidate will have a good eye for detail, excellent online research skills, and highly accurate typing and keyboard skills. This is a varied role for a recent graduate with an interest in data and record management to support the peer review of research grant applications, alumni relations and marketing activities in the Grantmaking/Higher Education sector.
