Communications Worker

  • Part time
  • £35,000 pro-rata
  • West Lothian Council Area
  • Closing 22nd December 2023

The Scottish Government has recently confirmed grant funding for the establishment of a regional Climate Action Network Hub in West Lothian. The Hub will form part of a strategic Scotland-wide network of such regional hubs across Scotland to offer networking, support and encouragement of community led climate action.

The employing body will be West Lothian Climate Action Network Hub. The strategic direction for the Hub will be provided in the first instance by WLCAN Hub Directors but will evolve through the Hub membership. Line management of the Senior Development Worker will be provided by Hub Directors and the staff by the Senior Development Worker.

Funding for the Hub is fully confirmed for the remainder of 2023-24 while grant support for 2024-25 is agreed in principle at this stage, pending final agreement on the Scottish Government budgets for that year. However, we have been advised by the Scottish Government to recruit staff for both this year and next with that caveat.

In addition to their work in West Lothian, the Senior Development Worker will play an active part in the wider Hub network attending monthly Hub meetings, quarterly Stakeholder Working Group meetings and enabling opportunities for learning across the National Hub network.

This is an exciting time to be involved in community-led climate action and for the successful applicants to make their mark.

The role of the Communication Worker is to contribute to the delivery of the WLCAN Hub, its aims, objectives and outcomes by planning and delivering its communication and PR strategy.

This includes developing a communication plan, creating and managing website and social media channels, writing and disseminating publicity material and engaging with the public and the media. The role also involves organising engagement and promotional events and encouraging collaboration and engagement with stakeholders and partner organisations.
