Use your digital skills and expertise to create a positive change across the world

The Homeless World Cup Foundation is an ambitious and impactful charity, working internationally in partnership with organisations in circa 70 countries. We use street football to engage people who are homeless and organise a high-profile annual street football tournament to act as a catalyst for change. Together with our Street Football Partners, we touch the lives of 100,000 people who have experienced homelessness every year and over one million people since 2003.

We work year-round to strengthen our Street Football Partners and positively impact the lives of even more people around the globe; and to change perceptions and attitudes towards people who are experiencing homelessness. Our annual week-long street football tournament brings together more than 450 players from 40+ countries around the world. The tournament attracts thousands of visitors each year with millions more following online.

We now have a fantastic opportunity for a Digital Communications Assistant to join our small, hardworking team in Edinburgh and help us achieve our goals. Reporting to the Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for delivering high quality content across our digital channels (including social media, website, newsletters, blogs, reports) and helping to grow our global audience and reach.

The ideal candidate will have experience in managing social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, TikTok, Snapchat), digital content creation and editing (image, video, reports and presentations) and working to strengthen our brand. You will be solution oriented, an enthusiastic problem solver, outstanding communicator and have talent for building and maintaining strong relationships with others. You will be able to handle ever-changing situations in a multicultural environment while maintaining high energy levels and positive spirit.

If you would like to be part of our team and make a difference to people experiencing homelessness worldwide, we would love to hear from you.
