Engender is looking for an enthusiastic individual with excellent communication and engagement skills to join our small, busy team.

Engender is committed to being an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We offer flexible working conditions in a friendly working environment.

Role

Engender has some great stories to tell about how women’s equality could benefit women, families, communities, society, and Scotland’s economy.

As well as taking our message that gender matters to people and organisations across Scotland, we also want our Communications and Engagement Officer to engage with our members and stakeholders to build a clearer picture about how inequality affects women and what practical steps we need to take to make change happen.

You’ll be at the heart of our small team: talking to members, organising events, building relationships with other women’s and equalities organisations, putting your creative skills to good use in developing and disseminating publications and digital communications, working on campaigns, and using social media with flair.

Organisation profile

Engender has a vision for a Scotland in which women and men have equal opportunities in life, equal access to resources and power, and are equally safe and secure from harm.

We are a feminist organisation that has worked in Scotland for 20 years to advance equality between women and men. We are a membership organisation, and welcome all feminist women to join us.

We have an experienced board, and a small and enthusiastic staff team.
