Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s main economic development agency. Our goal: to deliver a significant, lasting effect on the Scottish economy. We help ambitious Scottish companies compete in globally competitive sectors, and work with a range of partners to create a world-class business environment that attracts new investment to Scotland.
We’re looking for two communications experts to join our Corporate Communications team.
The difference you’ll make
You’ll be on the front-line of SE's corporate communications strategy, helping deliver our key messages during an exciting period of change. This includes:
- Media relations - you’ll be in the thick of the action when it comes to fielding media enquiries, writing press releases, and promoting Scottish Enterprise at home and on the international stage.
- Communications strategy - you’ll help shape the big ideas that drive our strategy, bringing a fresh perspective, creativity, and a passion for Scotland’s economic development.
- Partnerships - you’ll develop strong relationships with internal stakeholders and external partners, to build support and showcase economic impact.
- Leadership support - you’ll use your expertise in communications to advise senior colleagues in all aspects of corporate communications, including media handling and speech writing.
Based in our Glasgow city-centre office, you’ll be a key contact for media and stakeholders, including regularly responding to enquiries as part of our out-of-hours service rota.
The qualities you’ll bring
You’ll probably come from a corporate communications or media relations background. Passionate and knowledgeable about what makes Scotland great, you are full of ideas on how to share our message regionally, nationally and globally.
A skilled writer and speaker, you’re confident engaging with media and senior stakeholders. You’ll have experience of working in a busy organisation and will work proactively as part of a team. You’ll have well-established professional networks to bring to the role - and, of course, a deep understanding of the media: traditional, social and everything in between.
