Edinburgh Food Project provide food and other everyday essentials, support, and advice, while working with individuals, communities, and partners to address the root causes of poverty.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the fight against poverty.

We are looking for someone who is an amazing communicator, highly organised, and digitally savvy to help us end the need for foodbanks for good.

This is a varied and vital job at the heart of our growing team: you will lead on all our internal and external communications, develop a style guide and brand guidelines, create and manage our website and social media content, work on campaigns and appeals, support fundraising events, keep our database and admin processes up to date and shipshape, and get involved at the frontline of fundraising.

While this role sits within our fundraising team, fundraising or charity experience isn’t necessary - you may come from another background altogether or be looking to take your career in a different direction.

You will likely have some comms and admin experience, excellent working knowledge of social media, a positive attitude, and a commitment to the vision, mission, and values of Edinburgh Food Project.

If you think that any of the following describe you then we want to hear from you:











Edinburgh Food Project offers a range of benefits including generous annual leave, competitive salaries, flexible working, and training opportunities.
