Social Enterprise Scotland is a membership organisation that supports, connects and promotes social enterprise organisations throughout Scotland.

In doing this we produce a weekly bulletin, run weekly webinars and work with a variety of stakeholders to represent and support the social enterprise sector. Last year we launched our Buy Social Scotland campaign to encourage consumers to buy from social enterprise organisations in the lead up to Christmas and we will be continuing this work and extending the campaign to include a B2B (business to business) push through our Buy Social Scotland Corporate Challenge.

About this role

This part-time role will have a focus on preparing and adding listings for our Buy Social Scotland B2B directory, updating the consumer directory and working on webinar promotion for our weekly events through social media.

While our office is based in Edinburgh it is currently closed due to Covid restrictions. The post is therefore open to remote working and hours can be flexible to suit.
