An exciting opportunity has arisen for a permanent public communications executive to join our communications team.

The successful applicant will work with one other colleague dealing with the correspondence and enquires we get from the members of the public. They will also work to improve our communications and customer experience.

We deal with a wide range of enquiries from the public. People contact us when they’re looking for a legal firm to help with their case, or when they’re unhappy with a solicitor and want to make a complaint. We also speak to people who aren’t sure where to turn and help signpost them towards the best source of help. Whoever contacts us and however they do so, our aim is to provide world-class customer service.

We are looking for someone who is as passionate about communications as we are, with strong people skills and excellent verbal and written communication. You will be able to transform technical and sometimes complex information into simple, lively and engaging information and to connect with a wide range of different audiences.

We are looking for a confident and enthusiastic individual who will work effectively as a part of a team and display a professional, helpful and open attitude. You must be a good listener but also able to be assertive when required. You will be able to prioritise workloads and to maintain accurate records to keep track of themes and trends from enquiries.

You’ll have at least two years’ experience of handling and managing written and oral correspondence, ideally within a regulatory body, public interest organisation or call centre. Knowledge of the legal sector in Scotland is desirable but not essential. Familiarity with social media platforms would be an advantage and a willingness to undertake training and learn new skills is vital.

As an organisation, our employee values are respect, openness, progress, inclusion and integrity. We strive to model these behaviours in our dealings with colleagues, members, stakeholders and members of the public.
