Sporting Memories are looking for a Communications Assistant to join their team. As part of your role you will engage with some of the biggest accounts and personalities of the sporting and media world!

Summary

  • Communications Assistant (Social Media)
  • 6 months fixed-term with view to extending
  • 25 hours per week
  • £16,000 full-time equivalent
  • Working from home or your own office space, based in the Edinburgh area

This is a brand new role within the organisation and an opportunity to make your mark on the communications reach and engagement of a UK charity. Reporting to and working closely with our Communications Manager, in this role you will engage with some of the biggest accounts and personalities of the sporting and media world, and with those people and organisations who lie at the heart of our work.

We use the power of talking about and remembering sport to tackle dementia, depression and loneliness among older people. While social media is just one part of our overall strategy, it is an aspect we strive to use in the most effective way possible.

Using your love of social channels, communicating and relevant experience, you will help to shape, support and grow our reach at a time when this is needed more than ever.

The Role

It goes without saying that you will enjoy sport. In fact, it will be pretty much a passion. A love of talking all things sport.

You will enjoy following big personalities and organisations in sports and sports media. You will understand how to make meaningful connections and have the confidence to engage, with guidance, with some of the biggest social media accounts in the sporting world.

Crucial is an understanding of our core work: to engage with members of the public; with older people who may be living with dementia, loneliness or depression, their families and their carers; our volunteers current and potential; and with our stakeholder organisations.

Your focus will be on providing social media support and input, but there will be opportunities to provide communications support across a range of tasks, such as collating quotes and case studies, writing news articles, supporting campaigns and building contact and media lists.

We don’t expect you to have run huge social media accounts or campaigns, but you will be able to demonstrate and provide examples of a true interest in engaging and building a variety of audiences across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram – using a wide range of imaginative and effective targeted strategies. This could be through employment or your studies, own work or interests.

You will be able to work efficiently from home or your office space but really enjoy being part of a team and contributing to our task groups. We love getting together for a ‘virtual’ coffee and to talk about sport just as much as our Club members do!

  • A covering letter that shows us why Sporting Memories and our mission means so much to you
  • Your CV to show us your relevant experience and interests
