Enough! Scotland are a small collective working with some big themes – like degrowth and decolonisation

Overview and Role

Our work needs someone with the know-how to enhance and cultivate our social media presence. We’re looking for a freelancer who can work closely with collective members to create engaging social media content and keep our social media channels active and relevant.

As well as having the kind of good sense of humour needed to work with a small highly-idealistic team – you’ll be the kind who can seek out new social media avenues and ways of connecting with wide ranging audiences. You’ll be able to commit to fifteen hours a week for three months with option to extend if it’s working out.

Deadline for applications – 16th July 2021 at 5pm
