Engagement Partner - Corporate Communications (2 posts)

Main Content

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.
