Join the Social Enterprise Academy as our new Education Marketing & Communications Officer to help create a social enterprise in every school in Scotland in the next 2 years.

Innovated in partnership with The Scottish Government in 2007, Social Enterprise Schools enables every young person to step up, realise their potential, and create the change they want to see in the world.

By giving young people a real-life experience of running their own social enterprise in school, this fully-funded programme delivers transformational learning which impacts both them and their community.

In their 10 year Strategy for Social Enterprise, the Scottish Government announced its ambition to see a social enterprise in every school in Scotland. We have been tasked with leading on the delivery of this goal.

From making sustainable crafts to funding community defibrillators to tackling local unemployment through computer coding classes, these young people are stepping up, taking action and demanding change.

Your role will be to support the growth of the programme, increase our presence nationally and creatively engage key stakeholders to make this vision a reality. As part of a highly motivated team, this opportunity offers variety, satisfaction and a great opportunity to be part of something that is making a difference to Scotland.

We are looking for someone with creativity, a flair for storytelling and a great work ethic to help us raise our profile, showcase our impact and engage our key audiences.

Working closely with the Education Team, Marketing Manager, and Design & Communications Officer, you will have a critical role in support the growth of Social Enterprise Schools across Scotland.

Your role will involve developing targeted communications campaigns, managing our marketing channels and creating engaging content that supports the Social Enterprise Academy’s work in schools across Scotland.

You will contribute to key projects and work closely within a creative team to explore ideas and make decisions. You’ll also be supported to develop and grow yourself, and build strong relationships across the organisation.

If you have experience of producing creative content and marketing campaigns, have outstanding communication skills and a supportive team spirit, we would love to hear from you.

Having the right mind-set, attitude and approach is as important for us as having the right experience and skills. We appreciate that the best person might not have all the listed criteria yet so if you feel your experience and skills will help you to make a great contribution in this role and you have the right mind-set, we would welcome an application from you.

Organisation profile:

The Social Enterprise Academy is a social change organisation: we exist to support people who are stepping forward to affect positive social change, wherever they may be. We exist to support the many, not the few.

Through dynamic learning and development programmes facilitated by our network of skilled facilitators, we help entrepreneurship and leadership to flourish in organisations, networks, schools and colleges.

With a 17 year track record of successful delivery in Scotland, the Social Enterprise Academy has been sharing its business and learning delivery models for the past 8 years with international partners through a social licence approach.
