Current vacancies

Marketing, Communications, Impact and Insight Officer

  • Part time
  • £26,000 pro-rata
  • Livingston
  • Closing 27th September 2021

This is an exciting opportunity to fill a significant new role with Community Enterprise, a leading social enterprise and community development consultancy and support provider. We provide support to third sector groups across Scotland and beyond and work with communities to build and sustain projects for the benefit of local people.

We are a social enterprise ourselves. 100% of our profits are re-invested in supporting the further growth and development of voluntary and community organisations.

We pride ourselves on our very strong reputation and the impact we have made and what we have learnt across Scotland over 30 years, but this is not well documented, articulated or communicated. One of the members of our Senior Management Team will have a responsibility for leading on a learning remit but will need help. We are therefore seeking someone with knowledge and experience to help us pull together our stories, our impact and our learning and communicate that across the sector in Scotland and beyond.

At a time of growth, we have created this new post to capture and cascade impart and learning and to improve our profile sensitively and appropriately. We are looking for someone who loves stories of change, is an excellent communicator, is comfortable in the digital space but is also great with people. We believe that the wider sector in Scotland and beyond will not be aware of the depth of our work, and the value that is contained in communities and this needs to be addressed to benefit both ourselves and the Scottish third, community and social enterprise sectors. You will have a strong work ethic and a sensitivity to the third sector.

Development Officer (Digital skills)

  • Full time or Part time
  • £30,000
  • Livingston
  • Closing 1st July 2021

This is an exciting opportunity to fill a significant new role with Community Enterprise, a leading social enterprise and community development consultancy and support provider. We provide support to third sector groups across Scotland and beyond and work with communities to build and sustain projects for the benefit of local people.

We are a social enterprise ourselves. 100% of our profits are re-invested in supporting the further growth and development of voluntary and community organisations.

Over the years we have built a team of people with the range of skills that the third sector needs to survive and thrive, from funding to asset development, marketing to finance, governance to branding. Digital skills have become increasing relevant and the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated that need so that it is not vital. We don’t have those skills on the team.

At a time of change, we have created this new post so that we have the skills and knowledge to support the Scottish third sector to use digital systems to improve their work and become more efficient, sustainable and effective.

We are looking for someone with broad digital knowledge and a curiosity to find out about, and spread the work about, all things digital.

We are looking for someone with a strong work ethic and an understanding of the third sector.

We envisaged this as a part time post that would grow as demand grows but would welcome applications from those who would prefer full time.
