SCOREscotland is a multi-cultural, anti-racist, black and minority ethnic (BME) community-led organisation operating in South West Edinburgh. We are embedded in neighbourhoods, many of which fall into the lowest 10% on the SIMD. Our mission is to address the causes and effects of racism, break down barriers, and support local individuals and group’s active participation in civic life to improve their quality of life and opportunities. We act on the causes and effects of racism by promoting race equality, raising cultural awareness, and fostering stronger, more resilient communities. We do this by improving understandings and acceptance of religious, cultural and social diversity amongst all communities through workshops and community events.
We are excited to announce an opportunity to join our team. We seek a talented and experienced person to work as a ‘Digital Inclusion and Communications Officer’. The aim of the role is to support local black and minority ethnic (BME) families to become/remain digitally connected with the wider world.
The post holder will also manage SCOREscotland’s presence on social media platforms including but not limited to our webpage, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
At Scottish Bible Society we share the Bible.
Thanks to the commitment and generosity of our supporters, the Scottish Bible Society (‘SBS’) is a charity that helps individuals and communities in over 200 countries and territories around the world to receive Bibles in a language they understand and in a format they can use. We are creative in supporting churches in Scotland to keep the Bible central and encourage meaningful engagement to deepen encounters with God. The range of projects we either initiate here or support around the world is extensive. Teaching people to read using the Bible, helping to heal the wounds of trauma in Bible-based support groups and ensuring Bibles are kept affordable in rapidly growing churches are just a few examples of transformative projects we support.
We have an exciting opportunity for someone who enjoys administrative duties to work across a variety of teams within SBS. Someone, with any eye for detail, who can help ensure the books and records of the charity are accurately maintained by assisting in a number of financial and supporter-based tasks.
For an informal discussion about the role, please call Ross McFarlane or Jenny Grimmond on 0131 337 9701.
