Clan Childlaw is recruiting for a Communications Manager to advance our communications and increase the reach, accessibility and impact of our work. This new role will enable us to communicate our message and ensure we reach the children and young people who need our help.

About the Role:

Clan Childlaw is an award-winning law centre that provides legal advice and representation exclusively to children and young people in Scotland.

Due to further expansion, we are able to offer a unique opportunity for a creative, proactive, self-motivated team member who will rise to the challenge of developing Clan Childlaw’s communications. The successful candidate will help us demonstrate how we use the law to realise children’s rights, improve their lives, and show our wider impact in improving how the law works for children and young people in Scotland.

About You:

You will be an analytical thinker, and an excellent storyteller. You will have exceptional communication skills and an ability to make specialist legal content accessible to a wide, general audience. You will be able to follow and give direction, proactively plan and prioritise and solve problems. You will be an engaging leader and team member who is passionate about and committed to Clan Childlaw’s vision and values and working with us to achieve our aims.

You will lead on communications strategy, planning and implementation and will work with others and intersect with legal, project and policy teams to produce content and materials and deliver communications.

You will have a relevant qualification and significant experience of communications and publicity and social media management. Experience and awareness of the legal, third and public sectors in relation to children and young people, children’s rights and the policy landscape in Scotland is desirable.

You will be working remotely from home. Travel to other locations throughout Scotland will be required. You will also be required - when Scottish Government and other relevant guidance allows - to travel to our offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh for regular team updates, to work with other team members as required, and for support and supervision meetings with your line manager. Membership of the PVG Scheme is essential for this role and the successful candidate will be required to apply for the scheme and produce an acceptable PVG Scheme Record.
