This is an exciting opportunity to join Alzheimer Scotland’s Communications and Marketing team to promote the support we deliver within the heart of local communities, and the added-value Alzheimer Scotland contributes to people living with dementia.

Having a flair for creative design and brand awareness is key for this role. You will help bring Alzheimer Scotland’s aim to make sure nobody faces dementia alone to life through your creative skills.

The Graphic Designer will originate effective and appropriate design solutions for a variety of Alzheimer Scotland print publications and digital media platforms. The post holder will provide design advice, support and creative design solutions for the organisation’s campaigns, publications and digital outputs. The role works closely with the Content Manager and Social Media and Campaign Manager. The role will include close working with and managing of design, print & photographic agencies.

This post will work collaboratively with stakeholders across the organisation to develop and deliver high quality creative content as well as generating concepts and ideas for all of our campaign work.

The post will sit within the Communications and Marketing Team; a team who are instrumental in continually shaping and evolving the organisation’s messaging, in collaboration with colleagues across all localities to ensure the charities messaging remains representative of what support, information, fundraising and campaigning activities are currently being delivered. The organisation has multiple platforms over which its message needs to be continually freshened and this role, along with support from the Content Manager, will be key in making sure messages are represented in line with the organisation’s brand and tone-of voice.

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 standard posters, fliers and calendars for our regular services and fundraising activities to the design of brand new campaigns and research reports. 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.
