An exciting temporary opportunity has arisen with the SMP to deliver on our communications needs and direct an essential leading voice in the Scottish international development sector.

The role requires a highly motivated, energetic, quick, adaptable and productive individual who has the experience and ability to work for a fast-paced organisation with a degree of autonomy where necessary, who is resourceful and keen to contribute to the life and work of a busy team that is both strategic and opportunistically responsive to its members’ needs.
