About the role

We have a great opportunity for a creative and skilled content producer to take a key role in the Sustrans Scotland Communications team.

You will primarily create dynamic and engaging video, photographic and written content that promotes sustainable transport, active travel and the work of Sustrans Scotland to a range of audiences including key partners, the public, volunteers and supporters, inspiring people to engage with our important cause.

Supported by your immediate and wider team, you will work across our channels to develop content that supports our fundraising and influencing work, contributes to the delivery of our campaigns, and engages our consumer and business audiences.

This is a rewarding job in which you will work closely with internal and external partners, communicating via social media and directly with media organisations across Scotland, as well as other relevant agencies.

You must have demonstrable experience of working in a communications environment, including filming and production of video and photographic content. In addition, you will have a developed knowledge of social media and will know how to use it to reach new and existing audiences.

We aim to be a truly inclusive employer, and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, in particular from under-represented groups. Sustrans is committed to reducing inequality, valuing diversity and enabling inclusion.
