Film Access Scotland is recruiting a Development Manager to support and grow the moving image and media access sector in Scotland.

Film Access Scotland is a sector development organisation which represents leading moving image and media access organisations, working with young people and the wider community across Scotland.

The organisation was founded in November 2013 to facilitate consultation and representation at strategic level and to ensure that the moving image and media access sector receives the recognition and resources it needs to deliver access and participation for all. Diversity, inclusion, equality, opportunity and creativity are at the heart of all Film Access Scotland members. The current consortium members are GMAC Film (Glasgow), Screen Education Edinburgh (Edinburgh), Station House Media Unit (Aberdeen), Media Education (Edinburgh), Plantation Productions (Glasgow) and Voice of My Own (Borders).

In 2018 the consortium underwent a development process resulting in the publication towards the end of 2019 of its Strategic Plan & Action Plan 2019-2021. Having secured funding from Creative Scotland for a two-year period, Film Access Scotland appointed Natalie Usher as Chief Executive in January 2020 and is now recruiting a Development Manager to support the work of the Chief Executive in delivering the Strategic Plan.
