We are looking for a self-starter and excellent communicator to help us provide the best experience to individuals starting and growing social enterprises in Scotland. Inquisitive by nature, you will be the eyes and ears of Firstport, conducting outreach and keeping the team up to speed with developments within our sector.

You will be confident responding to enquiries by phone, email and face-to-face from clients, stakeholders and the media about our services and our work. You will strive for continuous improvement, capturing valuable insights about the experience of our clients and turning that into useful resources and valuable content that serves the needs of our clients. The role is fast-paced, and you will work across programmes and projects, so the ability to multi-task, prioritise and work to tight deadlines is essential.
