Salary: £45,890 to £51,667, the starting salary will be £45,890

Post status: Permanent, full-time

Location: Flexible (within Scotland)

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency is happy to consider flexible work arrangements and we proudly use the ‘Happy to Talk Flexible Working’ logo on all our job vacancies.

If you want to work part-time or through some other flexible arrangement, we strongly encourage you to apply.

Every day, SEPA works to protect and enhance Scotland’s environment, helping communities and businesses thrive within the resources of our planet.

We call this One Planet Prosperity.

Our statutory purpose is clear, that we need to create environmental success in ways that, as far as possible, also create social and economic success.

The two core services we deliver for the people of Scotland are regulation and flood risk management and we have established a radical strategy for how we’ll drive change – One Planet Prosperity.

Great communication is integral to the delivery of this strategy. We recognise that a world-class environment protection agency requires world-class communications that inspire confidence in SEPA, its strategy, services and people through clear, strong, innovative and collaborative communications.

To do this we will make great communications an integral part of the role each one of our people plays across the organisation.

Working closely with the head of Communications, the successful candidate will drive SEPA’s Digital Communications activity, supporting the ‘Communicating One Planet Prosperity’ communications strategy and annual operating plan within a fresh, dynamic and fast-paced Communications & Marketing Unit.

Working across a series of teams, you’ll be responsible for a series of digital communication programmes, including a web refresh project and channels including SEPA websites, microsites, social media channels and new, Sharepoint intranet.

You’ll do so against the backdrop of a global health pandemic, where the organisation is following home working requirements. You’ll also do so in a period where the organisation is recovering from a significant cyber-attack.

Working as part of the wider team you’ll support a 24/7, 365 days per year out-of-hours digital and communications rota, with the availability to drive and travel, including out of hours as required (subject to COVID restrictions).

The closing date for this role is 27 June 2021.
