Charity registered in Scotland SC010767
A fully independent charity, registered in Scotland, a founding member of the United Bible Societies - a collection of Bible Societies operating in over 200 countries and territories.
Are you creative and passionate about communicating a message that gives hope and makes a
positive difference to millions of people around the world?
Thanks to the commitment and generosity of our supporters, the Scottish Bible Society is a charity
that helps people in over 200 countries and territories around the world to receive Bibles in a
language they understand and a format they can use. We are involved in transformative projects
that include teaching people how to read using the Bible, contributing to education programmes for
children and much more!
We have an exciting opportunity for a creative and strategic leader who excels in a senior
management position and as part of a senior leadership team. You will be someone with
communications, marketing and PR experience that can raise the profile of the SBS brand, engage
audiences to respond by supporting the SBS mission, and motivate a staff team to deliver the
organisational objectives. You will have experience of managing campaigns that help meet
fundraising targets for a charitable organisation, or a background in campaign management that
drives sales for a commercial organisation.
The role reports to the Chief Executive. You will be articulate, have strong influencing skills and
proven stakeholder management skills to work with all levels of staff in the organisation, our board
of directors, and external partners. This is a senior role in an organisation with a strong Christian
ethos, therefore there is an occupational requirement that the post holder is a practising Christian.
The Scottish Bible Society is committed to delivering a range of exciting, innovative Bible-based resources to both equip and inspire church communities and individuals, in Scotland and around the world. In order to grow the effectiveness and impact of our mission, we are looking to expand our fundraising team. We seek someone who is passionate about the message of the Bible, adept working with internal and external stakeholders, analytical and strategic, with experience of networking, comfortable building relationships with Mid- and Major-range donors.
The Scottish Bible Society is at an exciting and interesting point in its history. With newly refurbished premises and plans progressing toward a repositioning of our brand and messaging, we seek to appoint an experienced creative to lead and manage our in-house Communications Team. You will play a significant role in shaping how the charity promotes its mission and activity for both existing and new audiences.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced comms specialist with some management experience to grow in a Third Sector context – developing a brand, overseeing production, shaping strategy to promote a range of resources and fundraising initiatives with partners in Scotland and abroad.
Reporting to the Director of Communications, you will plan and manage a range of marketing materials through integrated campaigns across print and digital – leading, supporting, inspiring your creative team to ensure scheduled delivery of projects, on time, to budget, with (primarily) a Scottish Christian audience in view. You will guide and champion the Society’s brand and communications strategy, working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.
We’re looking for a people manager with an eye for clean, clear design who can analyse the detail, build a strategy, and deliver results – a seasoned professional with working knowledge of desktop publishing for print and digital platforms, who can lead and inspire with confidence and clarity.
