WEAll is recruiting for a COP26 Communications Officer. This 8-month contract offers the opportunity to lead on WEAll’s presence and impact around the COP26 in Glasgow in 2021, and offers a unique opportunity to engage new audiences with the case for economic system change and a wellbeing economy. Primarily this will be done through a multi-arts festival that seeks to be engaging and informative and will be available to digital audiences as well as people in Glasgow.
The position is a fantastic opportunity for someone with skills and experience in strategic communications: and who wants to be part of building a better system for people and planet. The successful candidate will be part of an exciting movement, working with people from all over the world who are collaborating to transform the economy.
Start date: May 2021
Contract type: 8-month fixed-term employment contract
Salary: The hours of work will be 21 hours per week and the salary is based on a full-time equivalent salary of up to £30,000 per annum (dependant on experience)
Hours of work: The nature of this role is that flexibility in hours is both required by the role (for example, there may be some evening and weekend work) but also offered by WEAll.
Location: Because of where COP will take place this year, our preference is to recruit for a person to be based in Glasgow [Scotland] where we can provide access to a co-working space (COVID rules permitting).
What we are looking for:
We are looking for an organised, flexible and highly motivated individual with demonstrable communications skills, and a passion for economic system change. The focus for the role is to take the lead on WEAll’s communications efforts in connection with COP26, specifically our planned COP26 music festival but also opportunities to bring together heads of government of the Wellbeing Economy Governments (WEGo) Partnership at the conference itself, and to advance wellbeing economy ideas by seeking out and creating opportunities for amplification related to COP26. The post holder must be adaptable, creative and – due to the nature of our small start-up organisation – willing and able to turn their hand to a range of communications tasks as required.
