Our current volunteer blog editor Nicola is leaving us to concentrate on her new future as a counsellor, we’d like to wish her the very best. As Nicola is leaving, someone has the amazing opportunity to take over and shape the Relationships Scotland blog. We have a wide range of people blogging for us, from Scottish parents to our Chief Executive, and we’d like to expand our writer base. This is an ideal opportunity for a copywriter, blogger or someone passionate about digital & social media.

The role entails:

  • Communicating with and managing our current bloggers
  • Strategising content ideas with Relationships Scotland staff and the Digital Media Manager
  • Managing the editorial calendar
  • Making simple SEO tweaks
  • Editing, approving and publishing content
  • Blogger outreach

The person we’re after has to have:

  • Writing experience (for example blogging, writing for traditional publications or report writing)
  • Good communication skills
  • Basic IT skills

Some desirable but not essential skills are:

  • WordPress experience
  • An understanding of social media
  • An understanding of issues affecting relationships (couples, children & families)

A full induction will be offered, we cover travel expenses and we’re flexible about the days/times/location you work. The commitment you give could be as little as two hours per week and this could be from home so you don’t need to be Scotland-based.

If you’re interested in applying please send a CV and short covering letter to no later than 5pm Fri 15th February 2013.
