This is an exciting opportunity to join the highly-skilled, multidisciplinary Communications and Events team working at the heart of CELCIS.

You will be an enthusiastic, highly organised and motivated person, specialising in digital communications. We are looking for someone with the expertise and skills to create content and to develop, with colleagues, plans and strategies for maximising the use of digital communications channels including our website and social media accounts. The post-holder will work with all team members to engage our stakeholders. Used to producing audio/visual content as well as accessible written copy, you’ll also be used to the responsive nature of the digital communications and be flexible in your approach.

Working on a number of tasks at any one time, you will require attention to detail, the ability to prioritise, and the judgement and skill to work with colleagues across the organisation as we work to deliver on CELCIS’s new strategy building brighter futures for children, young people and families.

As with all posts in the team, the post is initially funded to March 2020, with indicative funding for a further 2 years.

Applicants should give examples of how they meet the criteria outlined in the person specification.


CELCIS is a leading improvement and innovation centre in Scotland. We improve children’s lives by supporting people and organisations to drive long-lasting change in the services they need, and the practices used by people responsible for their care.

We want to see a world where children and young people at risk of harm or in need of care and protection have safe, healthy, happy, and loving childhoods, and are supported to be all they hope to be.

We work alongside the people and organisations involved in providing care, protection and support through public, private, and voluntary services including social work, education, health, justice, and housing, across Scotland and around the globe. Together we take bold steps to improve the lives of the most vulnerable babies, children, their families, and young people.

Our real strength is in our people. Team CELCIS is a friendly and skilled group of people who share a commitment to making a real and lasting difference in young lives.
