As the voice of the industry, we’re in a unique position to lead and facilitate this and we’re looking for a Marketing and Communications Manager to join the team and help make this vision a reality. 

We’re a small organisation with big ambition, it’ll be your job to show this off to the world, build on the platforms and success we have already achieved and take us to the next level. You’ll be our brand champion and will help to make sure the team are prepared for speaking engagements, events and have the collateral they need to help them succeed.

You’ll manage a small team who will help you deliver on the strategies and plans you create. You’ll be a doer as well as a thinker – in a small organisation everyone has to pull their weight and get their hands dirty, so we’ll need your skills operationally, as well as strategically.

So, if you’re a team player who knows how to lead a team, deliver on a strategy and keep all the plates spinning – keep reading.

What will you do?

We’re looking for a Marketing and Comms Manager to come in and support ScotlandIS to reach its goals. You’ll have to juggle multiple, competing priorities and make the right call, at the right time.

So, what will you be doing?

  • Leading a small team.  At ScotlandIS our people are key, you’ll be responsible for making sure that your team are all on track to deliver on their goals, while also making sure they are well supported and have the tools to do their job.
  • Stakeholder engagement.   ScotlandIS would be nothing without its core membership and it’s your job to be a face they can recognise and a voice they can call.  You’ll also have to make sure that we’re represented and engaged with multiple agencies across the public and private sector, and our skills aims are heard within academia and education.
  • Campaign Creation and Management.  You’ll have multiple plates spinning at any given point from our headline event ScotSoft to our annual Survey, Cyber Scotland Week and many more besides.  You’ll have to make sure that all campaigns are on point, fit with the overall strategy and perform as expected.    
  • Digital content creation.  While we don’t expect you to be a designer, however knowing your way around Photoshop would be an advantage.  It goes without saying that knowing your tweets from your ticktoks is a must.
  • Event management. You will also assist in the delivery of planned events, helping to ensure the appropriate branding, attendees and outcomes are delivered.

Few days will be the same, you’ll be working across multiple areas of the organisation while ensuring everything produced is on brand.  As part of our team, you will bring energy, enthusiasm, excellent communication skills, resilience and a can-do attitude that inspires people into action.

The ideal person will be a confident self-starter, who is well organised and values working in a small team where you are really able to make a difference.

  • Stakeholder engagement skills
  • Organisational skills
  • Previous experience of managing a team
  • Experience in Adobe Creative Suite, WordPress and Mailchimp
