The Children's Panel - life changing

CHS is recruiting for a Communication & Engagement Lead 07 August 2017

Can you hold a room? Do you have the talent to take us to the next level? If so, then read on.

Children’s Hearings Scotland aims to improve the outcomes of Scotland's most vulnerable children and young people through the support of 3,000 volunteer panel and Area Support Team members.

We need an exceptional and savvy communications and engagement professional to proclaim loudly about our work and what a valuable contribution our volunteers make to the lives of children and young people. You will be social media and digitally smart, campaign ready with an innovative and creative approach to media channelling.  

Communications needs to be the beating heart of CHS and by joining our dynamic and highly skilled national team you will be the go-to person to provide excellent communication advice and know-how. You will lead on the implementation of our ambitious and exciting communications strategy and you will help shape and manage our core messaging.

You will be a highly motivated and tenacious self-starter, strategic in your approach and able to work independently and confidently to develop CHS’ growing profile and credibility. You will also thrive on working collaboratively with colleagues and external partners on campaigns and other strategic projects.

You will develop and promote the effective participation and engagement of children and young people in the Children’s Hearings System. It’s a system for them, so experience of co-design and collaboration with partners would be ideal.

Having a relevant degree or equivalent in communications, media, marketing or related subject you will demonstrate that you’ve got the appetite to develop your own professional development as well as promoting our collective ambitions for change.
