Ecas is looking for a part-time (7 hours per week) Social Media and Website Coordinator to join our small team, working remotely or based in our office. The successful candidate will have strong graphic design and copywriting skills, experience managing social media platforms, updating/editing websites, and creating impactful and engaging content.
Ecas is an Edinburgh based charity and was established over a hundred years ago. The charity works to improve the quality of life of physically disabled people in the Edinburgh and Lothians area: promoting equality, choice and participation through our activities, befriending service and grants.
Alongside creating compelling content about our own services, we post infographics focusing on topics of interest to our audience, ranging from ableism to coping with Covid-19 worries. The Social Media and Website Coordinator will work collaboratively with other members of staff, writing blog posts and promoting events such as Befriending Week.
During 2020 our output was revised to better reflect our services that at the time were taking place virtually via Zoom. Since mid-2022 we have returned to the provision of services in person as well as offering a blended approach. Our current output focuses on filling spaces in our activity groups, writing blog posts and promoting events such as befriending week. Opportunities also exist to support the production of hard-copy marketing resources such as our annual report, and promotional flyers.
To apply please send your C.V. with the names of two referees. Please also send a covering letter (preferably 1 side, but maximum 2 sides, of A4 with minimum 11 font) clarifying how you meet the required skills and experience, and saying why you consider yourself suitable for the post. Examples of social media content designed and created by you (on behalf of an organisation or yourself) will be required for the interview stage. Referees will not be contacted until an offer has been made and accepted.
Completing the Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form is entirely voluntary and will be used for analysis purposes only. The information supplied will be kept confidential and will not be forwarded to the recruitment panel.
