Having a flair for creative storytelling as well as writing engaging, and impactful content is key for this role.

You will be able to change your tone, style and messaging to suit the platform and audience, while working within the parameters of the overall Alzheimer Scotland style and brand guidelines. You will have experience of collating great stories and producing content across a variety of internal communications channels.

The role will also see you engage with Alzheimer Scotland staff from across both our corporate teams and our local support teams across the country, supporting and advising on best practice to ultimately raise awareness of the activities and support being provided by the charity.

You will be comfortable and excel in working in a fast-paced environment and confident in managing conflicting deadlines.

There will be no such thing as a typical day, with attention needing to be diverted from researching, to generating and distributing copy, as well as changing focus from internal to external perspectives. The Internal Communications Officer will be producing original copy; including content, straplines and headlines for all forms of printed collateral, web pages, email campaigns, social media, presentations, advertising, marketing and sales collateral. Therefore, the person who applies for this post must be able to confidently work autonomously and to tight deadlines without compromising on quality assurance of content.

A key performance indicator for this role will be the increased level of engagement across all localities and roles, including the increased complexity of engagement, working towards achieving an internal platform that is self-sustaining, with all employees having a stake in its development and therefore embedded as a daily tool of practice. The success of this role will be evident in the clear collaboration across the organisation to positively impact and influence the delivery of the locality vision across the whole organisation.

As the team is based across the Edinburgh and Glasgow office, occasional travel will be expected throughout the two locations.
