Charity registered in Scotland SC030516

We are Scottish Love in Action (SLA), a charity based in Edinburgh, Scotland. We partner with local projects in India to empower vulnerable children and young people to change their lives. 2021 is our 21st birthday year; in that time, with our grassroots NGO partners, we have enabled more than 10,000 children and young people to escape the poverty trap and work towards a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.

Current vacancies

Communications Coordinator

  • Part time
  • £26,000 – £27,000 pro-rata
  • Hybrid - Edinburgh and homeworking
  • Closing 25th May 2022

Fancy a job?

Last year, we celebrated our 21st birthday. We have achieved a lot in that time, but we still have big dreams to improve the lives of children and young people. We’re looking for someone to help us on this journey.

We know that some people face more challenges than others and we want to do our bit to correct this imbalance. 21 years ago, Gillie Davidson travelled with a group of young people to Tuni in India. The challenges that young people faced motivated her to start our charity.

We believe everyone deserves to be equal. Is that too much to ask? Here's some stuff we're doing to make this happen:

  • We give a voice to children and young people
  • We help children to understand their basic human rights
  • We show young people that they matter
  • We help children to stay in school and learn
  • We help children to look after their mental health
  • We help young people prepare to be independent adults

We’re looking for someone to write copy for print and online marketing to maximise Scottish Love in Action’s profile and engage new audiences with our work. To lead digital fundraising activities, maximising online presence to encourage donor growth, engagement and retention across a range of digital platforms.

Charity experience is welcome but not required. We recognise transferrable skills.
