Marketing and Events Assistant

£18,000 - £21,000 pa (depending on experience)
Closing date: Sunday 21st May 2017 (midnight)

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is seeking an exceptional and energetic individual to join its busy Fundraising and Communications team as Marketing and Events Assistant.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has a 134-year history of rescuing, reuniting and rehoming dogs and cats across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Receiving no government or lottery funding, the Home is reliant on fundraised and donated income to support its vital animal welfare work. The arrival of a new Chief Executive and Senior Management Team has seen the development of a 5-year strategic plan for the Home, with a view to becoming one of the leading animal welfare organisations in Scotland.

The successful candidate will be an excellent communicator, working with all departments across the organisation to provide marketing and fundraising support. You will demonstrate a passion for developing creative content for social media and other digital platforms and the drive to keep your knowledge up to date in this ever-evolving field. You will have strong organisational skills with excellent attention to detail and be a good team player, providing vital support with a can-do attitude.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious individual to develop their marketing communications and events skills in a dynamic team with a shared passion for dog and cat welfare. While the role will not involve direct contact with animals as part of your day-to-day work, a sympathy for Home’s animal welfare vision is desirable.
