Ecas is looking for a part-time (7 hours per week) Social Media and Website Coordinator to join our small office team. The successful candidate will manage social media platforms, update our website and create impactful and engaging content.
Ecas is an Edinburgh based charity and was established over a hundred years ago. The charity works to improve the quality of life of physically disabled people in the Edinburgh and Lothians area: promoting equality, choice and participation through our activities, befriending service, grants and young people’s service.
It’s an exciting time to join Ecas. Following a comprehensive organisational review, Ecas is committed to engaging with younger disabled adults between the ages of 18-30 to ensure it continues to provide services that are responsive and tailored to meeting the needs of all physically disabled adults. In January 2020 Ecas launched its young people’s service which aims to engage physically disabled young people in outcome-focused support, to identify individual pathways, and navigate their options and the opportunities available to them.
A key part of ensuring youth engagement has been to review Ecas’ branding and communications strategy, including Ecas’ online presence. A new website was launched in March 2019 along with Twitter and Instagram accounts. An Ecas Facebook page and a YouTube channel were created previously.
Having adapted all Ecas services for virtual delivery due to Covid-19, our social media channels and website have been key to promoting opportunities available for physically disabled people across Edinburgh and Lothian.
