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.
