An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our communications team. We are recruiting to two roles: our Digital Communications Officer post and our Editor/Publisher Communications Officer post.

Both posts are unique within the team, responsible for the delivery of different aspects of the GCPH Communications Strategy. They involve contributing to the overall planning, development and delivery of the Communications Strategy and working across our channel mix of written publications, events and face-to-face engagement, digital and media. A key aspect of these roles is the ability to translate complex information into easily understandable and clear messages in a range of formats for different audiences.

The Digital Communications Officer (post 096127) has lead responsibility for the development and maintenance of the GCPH and Understanding Glasgow websites and management of our social media channels. They also support the development and delivery of other digital communications such as infographics, animations, audio and video recordings, e-newsletters, and new media projects.

The Editor/Publisher Communications Officer (post 096137) has lead responsibility for planning, developing and implementing the publication activities of the GCPH. This includes the editing, proofing, design and production of a broad range of publications and outputs and supporting the dissemination of same. The postholder is also involved in creating copy for internal and external audiences.
