Are you looking for a role in which you will help to improve the lives of families across Scotland? One that encourages you to work differently, get creative and feel valued by colleagues and the organisation you work for?

If you are someone with imagination, talent and expertise, we want to hear from you.

It’s an exciting time for the charity with the launch of Standing Tall: A Strategy For Growth 2023 - 2028 to transform the care and support of Huntington’s families, expand specialist services and deepen involvement in research and clinical trials.

This follows two years of significant expansion in our specialist teams, growth in funding, a rise in media engagement and parliamentary support for the work we do, and the success of our ground-breaking Dance 100 event in Glasgow.

Innovative and impactful communications are playing a key role in the delivery of Standing Tall 2023 - 2028 and the appointment of our first Digital Communications Officer will help us to take that vital next step.

Reporting to the Communications Lead, the successful applicant will join an ambitious and hard-working organisation dedicated to families impacted by Huntington’s disease, a devastating hereditary condition that changes the brain and causes severe and complex physical, mental health and cognitive symptoms.
