The Poverty Alliance are recruiting a Living Wage Project Assistant to support delivery of our highly successful national programme: Living Wage Scotland.

Living Wage Scotland was launched in 2014 by the Poverty Alliance to increase the number of employers that are recognised for paying their staff the real Living Wage. It is a partnership with the Living Wage Foundation, with Scottish Government as a key funder.

The Living Wage employer movement has grown to now over 3500 employers in Scotland, and over 14,000 across the UK. We have since expanded our engagement with employers on additional schemes that support fair work, namely Living Wage Places, Living Pension and Living Hours.

We are seeking a Living Wage Project Assistant to support our employer engagement, marketing and communications activities that contribute to the growth of the Living Wage employer movement in Scotland.

The post will suit a creative individual who has experience in creating written copy and social media content in a professional setting, has excellent verbal and written communication skills and outstanding organisation and prioritisation abilities but also a strong commitment to achieving social justice and a desire to tackle in-work poverty.

Responsibilities will include supporting internal and external communications activities, maintaining our website and social media platforms, contributing to the development of digital and print assets and materials relevant to the project aims (case studies, web materials, articles, promotional resources), supporting events (virtual and in-person), and supporting the delivery of Living Wage Scotland’s communications strategy.

The role will involve close collaborative work within a small team, and direct engagement with our growing network of accredited Living Wage employers.
