We’re recruiting a Communications and Development Officer

We are seeking an experienced communications professional to develop and implement the marketing, brandingPR and strategic profile of the John Byrne Awards and The iris Initiative. 

We are seeking an inspired and experienced communications professional to help develop the next stage for the organisation; creating and implementing an exciting and dynamic public facing profile for the John Byrne Award which enables us to engage with a wider cross section of the artistic community in Scotland and beyond.

This is an interesting time to be joining our team; you will be driven to help shape the organisational profile and programmes as they develop, putting your creative energies into understanding our aims, facilitating thinking, and communicating these to the outside world.

Reporting to the Director, you will work collaboratively on communicating the organisational strategy and take the lead on the marketing and comms plans for awards and events as well as engaging within the creative industries and across the wider sector to achieve our goals.   You will be flexible, adaptable, and pro-active; taking a solutions-focused approach to your work with the ability to make good decisions independently.

This is an opportunity to join a small organisation and help it grow. It will appeal to someone who is keen to make things happen; someone who is not afraid to roll their sleeves up and get things done to realise the company’s growth potential and ambitions.
