The Scotland Malawi Partnership is looking to recruit a highly motivated, energetic, adaptable and productive individual to lead the Partnership’s media and communications work.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to deliver on the media and communications needs of the Scotland Malawi Partnership and help direct an essential leading voice in the Scottish international development sector. The post-holder will help to deliver high quality communications in support of key event events as well as continuing to respond to and communicate with the SMP’s membership and other target audiences.

This role requires a highly motivated, energetic, quick, adaptable and productive individual who has the experience and ability to work for a fast-paced organisation with a degree of autonomy where necessary, who is resourceful and is keen to contribute to the life and work of a busy team that is both strategic and opportunistically responsive to its members’ needs.

Through the Covid crisis, digital communications are of paramount importance, and are an integral part of the SMP’s Covid-19 Response Strategy. We are looking for an individual that can think innovatively about how best to use the digital space to disseminate key information, engage members and stakeholders, and share the Partnership’s core narrative.

We need someone with proven experience with a range of digital tools and platforms, who has a keen eye for detail, a passion for internationalism, and the personal drive and determination to succeed even in challenging, changing environments. If this sounds like you, and if you are excited about being the mouthpiece of arguably the the UK’s largest cross-community international development network, we encourage you to apply..
