We know that not everyone has the access, skills or motivation to be online, but we also know that providing that access can be life changing. If you feel the same way, we have an opportunity that could be perfect for you.

This role is based in our Digital and Development Department, working across our programme of digital inclusion initiatives and supporting organisations funded to undertake digital inclusion projects.

We’re looking for someone who has a good working knowledge of poverty and inequality, and how this impacts on digital inclusion.

Our team has a wide-ranging portfolio of upcoming work. This will be of interest to candidates who would like an opportunity to make an impact on how we reach those most affected by digital exclusion and poverty, helping them access essential digital services. Our current work plan includes the re-design of Connecting Scotland and thematic projects focused on harm reduction, Technology-Enabled Care (TEC) and digital ethics, as well as ongoing work on Essential Digital Skills and supporting community-based digital inclusion partnerships.

To help us deliver this programme of work we’re looking for someone who understands the digital inclusion landscape in Scotland, and has a good working knowledge of service design and applying agile project management methodologies to their work.
