Social Work Scotland is the professional body for social work managers and leaders. We are a membership organisation with over 350 individual and corporate members. We exist to promote and support the development of the social work profession, and to inform, influence and improve public policy and public services.

We are excited to be appointing a Communications and Events Manager to communicate and showcase the work we do and to highlight the issues we are concerned about. Through this post we aim to ensure Social Work Scotland’s members understand how to get involved in our activities, and are informed about what we are doing on their behalf. The role will also make sure the work we do, and our positions on key issues, are highlighted to our partners and the wider public.

We are looking for an experienced, confident individual who is at ease communicating across all mediums (with a particular emphasis on digital media, specifically producing content and running social media accounts). You’ll have experience of engaging with the news and specialist media, and of shaping, organising and running events.

You’ll need to be highly organised and share the values and principles of a social work organisation, as well as feel confident to suggest new and better ways of working. We are a small dynamic team and you’ll need to have a flexible attitude to your work as we seek to provide the best service to our members.
