Job: Project Communications Officer (part-time, to 31st December 2020)

Creative Carbon Scotland is seeking a part-time (one day per week / 0.2FTE) Project Communications Officer for a contract from 2nd March to 31st December 2020.

APPLY

Background

Creative Carbon Scotland – a charity initiated by Festivals Edinburgh and founder members, the Federation of Scottish Theatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network – is a partnership of arts organisations working to help shape a sustainable Scotland. We believe that the arts and culture have an essential role in achieving the transformational change to a sustainable future. 

Our vision is of a Scotland where this role is fully recognised, developed and utilised by both the cultural world and others interested in sustainability. 

Our mission is therefore to connect the arts and culture with others working towards that transformational change in order to bring it about. 

Our objective is larger than achieving incremental change in small pockets: we want to form a network of creative individuals and organisations who together can alter perceptions and change society using the work they make and present, the way they operate and how they speak to the public. 

We work with artists and individuals, cultural and sustainability organisations, funders and policy makers, connecting them to the change process and exploring how the cultural sector can contribute.  

This is an exciting time for Creative Carbon Scotland (CCS) and our work. Since the declaration of the climate emergency by the Scottish Government and others we have been busier than ever and our knowledge, contacts and expertise are in constant demand. With work including two major EU projects and the COP26 in Glasgow coming up soon, we are seeking additional support in our communications work. Some of this will be supporting our collaboration with Climate Ready Clyde and Climate-KIC in the development of Clyde Re:built, a transformative adaptation strategy and plan for the Glasgow City Region, home to one third of the Scottish population. Some will relate to the COP in November. 

Therefore, we are seeking a part-time (0.2FTE) Project Communications Officer to support our Communications Manager in our press and PR work, developing project branding and templates, keeping our social media accounts up to date and lively, writing copy for our own and others’ websites, and generally implementing a complex and busy communications strategy and plan. Although CCS is based in Edinburgh, this work is largely Glasgow-focused, so being Glasgow–based would be an advantage and the ability to work independently is essential. Time is tight, so we are hoping someone can take on this role as soon as possible; ideally starting on 2nd March. CCS is a flexible organisation so work patterns can be tailored to suit the successful candidate.   

Application process  

Applications will only be accepted via the form below, unless alternative arrangements are made. If you wish to make alternative arrangements or have any problems in using the site, please write to alexis.woolley@creativecarbonscotland.com to seek assistance in good time before the closing date of midnight on Sunday 16th February (NB: this deadline was updated at 18:30 on 4th February).  

Please study the job description and person specification below closely and ensure that in your application you demonstrate clearly how your skills and experience mean that you meet the person specification and fulfil the needs of the role. Complete the form below and upload your CV, a covering letter explaining how you meet the person specification and two examples of your previous work in support of your application, as indicated on the form.  

Creative Carbon Scotland applies a strong equal opportunities approach to recruitment. To help us avoid unconscious bias when shortlisting, please do not use your name or provide your contact details on your CV or other uploads; use your initials. Do provide your name and contact details on the form. Please save your CV, letter and examples in the format [your initials_CV e.g. AB_CV], [AB_letter], [AB_eg1] and [AB_eg2].Your documents will be separated from your completed form details and we will assess your application using them only. 

We recommend submitting your documents as PDFs, though our system also accepts .doc documents. It does not accept .docx documents.

Applications must be submitted by midnight on Sunday 16th February. Interviews will take place in Glasgow on Thursday 20th February (NB: these dates were updated at 18:30 on 4 February).

Equalities

Creative Carbon Scotland is committed to equalities and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates: we will make reasonable adjustments where necessary to enable people with particular needs or requirements to work with us. Our Equal Opportunities Policy is available on our website.  Please complete the Equal Opportunities Monitoring survey here and confirm that you have done so in your application – this is anonymous and the information provided will not affect your application in any way.
