Well the post title says it all really. I now have the pleasure of working with national counselling, mediation and family support charity Relationships Scotland as their Head of Communications – two days per week. I’m incredibly excited about this new position and look forward to getting started later this month.
I’ll be splitting my week between the Head of Comms role and my position as Director of Third Sector Lab. Things have grown considerably at Third Sector Lab – we now have a much bigger team providing social media training & strategy development, social media support for events and website design. We’ve also got a much-needed new website for the Lab in the pipeline. Here’s just a few of the organisations we feel privileged to call recent clients:
- Oxfam Scotland
- Dunfermline Advocacy
- Inspiring Scotland
- The Conservation Volunteers
- Voluntary Action Fund
As well as being an incredibly exciting role, the Head of Comms position with Relationships Scotland is really important from a business point of view. It keeps me grounded in the reality of the challenges Scottish charities face. Not every organisation has a whacking great comms budget and most certainly don’t have the privilege of a full-time comms team – that’s something we always bear in mind at Third Sector Lab.
I’m looking forward to connecting with lots of you in my new role at Relationships Scotland while continuing to develop the digital media work we do at Third Sector Lab.
