Communications Officer (Maternity Leave Cover)
Applications are invited for this post based at my constituency office in Glenrothes (working from home due to current coronavirus pandemic).
You will be responsible for managing communications with local and national media and for maintaining website and social media accounts on my behalf. You may also be required to manage your own portfolio of casework. If there is a significant change in the Scottish Government’s coronavirus advice during the term of the contract, you may be asked to spend short periods of work at Westminster.
You will be educated to degree standard or equivalent and will have excellent interpersonal skills. You must be able to demonstrate high standards of integrity and political awareness alongside a record of high performance in all the main duties of the post. A flexible approach to work is essential as the nature of the job means there will be a need for some evening and weekend working.
This is a temporary, part time post (0.6 full time equivalent) to provide maternity leave cover. The contract will be for 9 months. The full-time equivalent salary will be in the region of £24k - £25k dependent on experience.
This post is subject to the conditions of employment for MPs' staff as set by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority. Any offer of employment will be subject to security clearance by the parliamentary authorities.
The closing date is 5pm on Friday 23 October. Interviews will take place by video call on Monday 9 November and the successful candidate will be expected to take up post in early January 2021.
