The Role

Under One Roof are looking for someone from a communication or architectural background whose skills will help expand the organisation’s reach and impact, particularly with tenement flat owners.

The newly created Communication and Engagement Officer, partially funded by Safe Deposits Scotland Charitable Trust, will be critical in ensuring the success and sustainability of Under One Roof in its first year of existence as a stand-alone charity.

Under One Roof has a well-established website widely respected throughout the housing sector, and in this role you will be responsible for building the website’s profile, developing new content and ensuring existing content is organised, up-to-date, and accessible to all who use it.

In addition to working on the website, you will also develop and deliver content, and oversee events and activities, that will extend the knowledge of tenement maintenance and management throughout Scotland.

The successful candidate(s) will also work closely with the Chief Executive, the only other employee of the organisation, on activities not traditionally associated with communication roles, such as answering inquiries, fundraising, and reporting, and operational matters.

Essential for any candidate seeking the role is the ability to be self-motivated and enthusiastic about the work of Under One Roof. Above all, the candidate(s) must demonstrate a willingness to do whatever is needed to support an organisation in its first years of existence become sustainable and succeed in its aims.

In return, you will be offered the opportunity to work for an organisation that provides excellent benefits and flexible working opportunities, gain experience outside your existing skill set to support your future career goals, and contribute your unique skills and ideas to help shape an organisation from the ground up.

Candidates looking for full-time employment, or a part-time job share, are encouraged to apply.
