Job Summary

This is an exciting time to join Scottish War Blinded as the charity is expanding its services and opening a new centre for veterans with sight loss in Paisley later this year. The Marketing and PR Assistant will join us at a crucial time in the lead up to the opening, assisting with marketing campaigns to recruit new members in the West of Scotland and to launch the centre.


This is a varied role, with duties ranging from arranging exhibitions, events and our presence at Armed Forces Days to writing for a wide range of audiences across both off line and online communication channels.


We are seeking a talented writer with the ability to interview Scottish War Blinded members to share their stories.
