The Scottish Bible Society is at an exciting and interesting point in its history. With newly refurbished premises and plans progressing toward a repositioning of our brand and messaging, we seek to appoint an experienced creative to lead and manage our in-house Communications Team. You will play a significant role in shaping how the charity promotes its mission and activity for both existing and new audiences.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced comms specialist with some management experience to grow in a Third Sector context – developing a brand, overseeing production, shaping strategy to promote a range of resources and fundraising initiatives with partners in Scotland and abroad.


Reporting to the Director of Communications, you will plan and manage a range of marketing materials through integrated campaigns across print and digital – leading, supporting, inspiring your creative team to ensure scheduled delivery of projects, on time, to budget, with (primarily) a Scottish Christian audience in view. You will guide and champion the Society’s brand and communications strategy, working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.


We’re looking for a people manager with an eye for clean, clear design who can analyse the detail, build a strategy, and deliver results – a seasoned professional with working knowledge of desktop publishing for print and digital platforms, who can lead and inspire with confidence and clarity.
