Vacancy: Communications & Engagement Officer
Thanks very much for taking an interest in The Scotland Malawi Partnership (SMP) and for considering applying for this vacancy with us. Please consult the application procedure, job and person specification closely.
This is an exciting opportunity for a values-driven Communications and Engagement practitioner to join the Scotland Malawi Partnership to listen to and be led by Malawians, to support and amplify the work of our members and secretariat and provide a respectful, leading voice in the Scottish international development sector.
The post-holder will build on the excellent work of their predecessors to help deliver high quality communications in support of key events as well as continuing to respond to and communicate with the SMP’s membership and other target audiences. We are a close-knit, collaborative team and whilst each individual has their responsibilities for delivery, there is also a strong emphasis on supporting one-another and ‘mucking-in’ where it’s useful.
This role requires a highly motivated, energetic, adaptable and productive individual who has the experience and ability to contribute to a small, fast-paced team. There will be a high degree of autonomy and the successful applicant will be resourceful and eager to contribute to the life and work of a busy team which is both strategic and agile in responding to members’ needs.
The SMP’s office is located at City of Edinburgh Council, Room 3/1, City Chambers, High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1YJ. We have blended office and home-working with the expectation of 3 days per week in the office.
