About CCPS

The Coalition of Care and Support Providers’ mission is to identify, represent, promote and safeguard the interests of third sector and not-for-profit social care and support providers in Scotland, so that they can maximise the impact they have on meeting social need.

We are at the heart of influencing Scotland’s radical social care reform agenda. It’s a busy landscape right now, with great opportunities to make a tangible difference for more than a quarter of a million people supported every year by our membership of more than 90 not-for-profit social care and support providers.

We want to see a social care sector in Scotland where individuals and families can realise their own aspirations, and thrive, through support which is rooted in human rights and meaningful relationships. And we want social care to be designed collaboratively, delivered locally and accessible equitably to everyone who needs it.

As an organisation, we want to live these values with integrity in how we work with each other, with our members, and with our partners.

Sound interesting? We are recruiting a new post of Communications & Parliamentary Officer to help us deliver on these aims and contribute to strengthening our reach, driving change and influencing a social care system designed for, and with, people.

The Role and You

Our Parliamentary and Communications Officer will drive our parliamentary engagement work, with a particular focus on legislative reform and the Fair Work agenda, ensuring that CCPS’s messages, aims and values are shared effectively with key stakeholders.

Alongside the parliamentary brief, you’ll develop and expand our communications, with a particular focus on digital communications and media engagement.

You’ll bring with you a thorough understanding of Scotland’s political landscape and how Holyrood works, and significant experience in communications and media engagement, with particular skills in social media and growing audiences online.

Helping to build our voice, implement our brand and contribute to quality improvement, you will be a valued-led professional committed to inclusion and an ethical approach to sharing people’s stories. You’ll be part of a small communications team, line managed by the Head of Communications & Engagement.
