The South East Integration Network (SEIN) is an active network of community groups and organisations which work across the south east of Glasgow providing services & activities which celebrate diversity & support community integration. Our vision is to foster a positive, cohesive community, free from discrimination and racism in which people from all backgrounds and cultures are valued and equally able to participate in the community. We connect our member groups & organisations through monthly meetings and digital platforms; supporting their work, sharing what they are doing & encouraging partnerships.
Sharing information, in an engaging & accessible manner, is central to the work of SEIN & feedback from our members tells us how much this is valued. The Communications Assistant will support our Communications & Engagement Coordinator to keep our website up to date (including adding new opportunities, and member information), help to keep our social media channels active with relevant & engaging content and support with the development of promotional materials. One of their core tasks will be to collate our fortnightly newsletter; this includes pulling together information from our members & others about what’s happening locally & presenting this in an easy-to-read way.
The post-holder should share the values of SEIN & should be able to demonstrate the ability to work well in a small team.
The Communications Assistant will be managed by the SEIN Development Manager, with supervision & support from the SEIN Communications & Engagement Coordinator.
