Are you passionate about the benefits that technology can bring to everyone, and making sure that organisations have access to opportunities for learning and sharing knowledge?

We’re looking for someone with a good working knowledge of poverty and inequality, and how this impacts on digital inclusion, to join our team. This role will work across our digital inclusion programmes, including Connecting Scotland.

Connecting Scotland is a major programme developed as a result of the pandemic to support people who are digitally excluded to get online. Working with hundreds of partners in communities across Scotland, people are provided with a combination of devices, internet connectivity and digital skills support to help them with learning, life and work during the pandemic. Connecting Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government and supported by all Scotland’s Local Authorities, as well as hundreds of organisations from across the public, private and third sectors.

If you’re passionate about learning and sharing knowledge and have experience in training and supporting a large online community our Development Officer post could be just the job for you.

Location: SCVO staff are currently working from home. When our offices reopen this role could be based in any of our Glasgow, Edinburgh or Inverness offices, with the option to work from home for some of the working week.
