Role

Help us Change the Story on Poverty in Scotland!

Poverty and inequality are the greatest challenges Scotland faces. The Poverty Alliance is working hard to show how we can change the debate about, and ultimately solve, poverty. An opportunity has arisen to join our team and help us achieve our vision of a Scotland without poverty.

We are looking for an experienced Communications Officer who is able to help us re-shape the narrative about poverty in Scotland.

This post will be responsible for helping to increase the visibility of the Poverty Alliance’s key messages and activities. We are looking for someone who can support our members and community organisations to get their voices and stories into the media, particularly as part of our Challenge Poverty Week initiative.

The successful candidate will join the Poverty Alliance's policy and campaigns team, and will provide communications support for a wide range of activities. You will have experience of communicating complex social justice issues to diverse audiences. In particular you will have experience of working with community groups and individuals with little or no media experience. You’ll understand the importance of digital as well as traditional communication strategies, and how these can be used to support social change.
