Senior Projects Officer - Marketing and Communications

  • Part time
  • £22,701 – £26,700 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 24th March 2020

As our senior projects officer (marketing and communications), you will collaborate on a diverse range of creative and innovative projects. As part of the business development team, your involvement will range from marketing, communications, and design, to event planning, relationship cultivation and inspiring others to become champions for the organisation.

Your creativity will lead you to articulate the life-changing impact of Carr Gomm through writing, photography, videography and design, capitalising on digital marketing and local and national press outlets. You will understand and communicate the significance of our work – that people are supported to overcome physical, psychological and societal barriers in order to live the life they want, follow new interests and create new connections – and hence the importance of our team to make it possible. You will understand that the sooner we’ve accomplished our objectives, the sooner we’ll be changing people’s lives and enhancing Carr Gomm.

Reporting to the business development manager, you will be working on a wide variety of projects, some of which will require you to take a lead role and work closely with our projects officers. Taking particular responsibility for marketing and communications projects, you will:

  • co-create, deliver and review marketing plans and strategies
  • support the creation of internal and external communications and publications
  • source and create content for our digital channels, utilising a range of media
  • maintain accurate databases and monitoring tools to inform decision making
  • contribute to the research and development of innovative projects and activities

This outline is by no means exhaustive; rather it gives a flavour of the responsibilities undertaken by the senior projects officer (marketing and communications) and the wider team.

What makes a great senior projects officer (marketing and communications)?
