It’s an exciting time for Mountaineering Scotland – and this role is at the forefront of telling the story of our organisation, our activities and our members, and celebrating some of our country’s best-loved and most precious environments.

More people than ever are taking up hill walking, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring in Scotland’s world class mountains and climbing venues. That means our communications need to be at their peak – across multiple platforms and channels to inform and engage as many people as possible and grow our community. As part of the Member Services & Communications Team, you will have an important and dynamic role in raising awareness and visibility of the work of Mountaineering Scotland, developing our digital channels and helping us deliver the aims and outcomes of our new strategy for 2022-25. You’ll achieve this by engaging with new audiences as well as existing members and clubs through social media, web, PR, print and email marketing.

The role will be based at our office in Perth however there is the potential for some home / remote working subject to negotiation.

Mountaineering Scotland is committed to being an employer and volunteer organisation that recognises and encourages equal opportunities, diversity, inclusion and respect in the workforce, with employment conditions and practices that ensure all staff and volunteers are treated equitably. We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, such as women, people with disabilities (including hidden disabilities) and individuals from Black and Minority ethnic communities.
