Reporting to: Head of Communications & Digital
Craft Scotland is the national development agency for craft. We put makers at the heart of all we do, championing diverse and high-quality contemporary craft. We help people learn about, appreciate and buy craft, promoting the contribution of craft to Scotland’s cultural, economic and social well-being.
Through our events and exhibitions programme, learning programme, digital platforms and strategic partnerships, we provide leadership for the sector. We create opportunities for makers to develop their creative and business practice, and to exhibit and sell work in Scotland and beyond.
Our digital platforms and processes play a central role in delivering the organisation’s aims and objectives. As part of the Communications & Digital team, this role will assist Craft Scotland in the next stage of our exciting digital journey to enhance its impact and reach. We want you to help us deliver a high-quality digital experience for our stakeholders, supporting their needs and helping build a robust craft sector. This involves using digital tools to foster an online community of makers, support them in the promotion of their work and assist them with any website troubleshooting.
Based in the creative hub of Castle Mills in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, this role will assist Craft Scotland in delivering its communications and digital activity. Working within the Communications & Digital team, you will focus on building website and social media traffic through content management, SEO and overseeing the technical elements of website management.
