The Poverty Alliance believes that poverty and inequality are the greatest challenges Scotland faces. They work to show how we can change the debate about, and ultimately solve, poverty.
They are currently recruiting for a Communications Officer, who will assist them in re-shape the narrative about poverty in Scotland.
The position is 21 hours, with a salary of £28,063 per annum (pro rata), plus a 6% pension and a fixed-term contract until March 2019 (with the possibility of extension).
The successful candidate will be responsible for helping to increase the visibility of the Poverty Alliance’s key messages and activities, and will be someone who can support their members and community organisations to get their voices and stories into the media, particularly as part of the Challenge Poverty Week initiative.
They will be part of the Poverty Alliance’s small policy and campaigns team, and will provide communications support for a wide range of activity.
Applicants should have experience of communicating complex social justice issues to diverse audiences. In particular, the Poverty Alliance are looking for experience of working with community groups and individuals with little or no media experience. Applicants should understand the importance of digital as well as traditional communication strategies, and how these can be used to support social change.
The Poverty Alliance aims to be an equal opportunities employer, and welcome applications from any person who can demonstrate that they meet the requirements for the post. They are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements.
The closing date for applications is 12pm on Thursday 14th June. Interviews will be held on Thursday 21st June.
