Role

The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK – we support people and communities to prosper and thrive.

National Lottery players raise an incredible £30 million a week for good causes. This money funds projects and activities that transform communities, protect our heritage and enrich lives through arts, sports and culture. We are proud to be one of 12 distributors responsible for awarding this funding across the UK.

Thanks to National Lottery players, last year we were able to award over half a billion pounds of life-changing funding to UK communities, supporting thousands of projects making a real difference to people’s lives.

Over eight in ten of our grants were for under £10,000 going to grassroots groups and charities across the UK doing great things to support their communities, during a particularly tough time.

We also distribute non-National Lottery funds, working closely with Government on funding for important issues, such as tackling loneliness, multiple and complex needs, mental health and distributing Dormant Accounts money.

Over the last five years we’ve awarded a total of £3.4 billion, of which £2.7 billion is National Lottery money.

We fund things that matter – whether helping communities respond positively to national, regional or local priorities, or helping the UK achieve its big social ambitions. Our grants range from £500 up to multi-million-pound programmes – supporting people and projects to do extraordinary things and bring great ideas for their community to life.

About the Role

We are looking for a new member of our friendly Communications and Engagement team to help us to tell the story of our National Lottery funding in Scotland. Line managed by a Communication and Engagement Manager, you will:

  • Raise the profile of our work by sharing news of our funding awards with the media
  • Reach out to a wide range of grant holders to identify and write up news stories and case studies
  • Repurpose written content for both traditional media and our digital channels.
  • Help us deliver our Scotland specific and UK wide integrated communication campaigns

The team also provides assistance to our eight funding teams which means you will work closely with funding colleagues to help with branding, grant holder media enquiries and other requests, as and when required.

This is a varied role but a rewarding one within a creative team that upskill one another and work closely as part of a varied communication mix.

The team works between the Glasgow office, at home and out in the community meeting projects.
