Thanks to the commitment and generosity of our supporters, the Scottish Bible Society is a charity that helps individuals and communities in over 200 countries and territories around the world receive Bibles in a language they understand and 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 role leads the communications and donor care teams and reports to the Chief Executive. You will be articulate, have strong influencing skills and proven stakeholder management skills to work with all levels of staff in the organisation, our board of directors, and external partners.
