We are looking for a Web Developer and a Graphic Designer to help us create a website and visual brand for Creative Scotland’s Culture Collective programme. You’ll work closely with Storytelling PR, Kathryn Welch and the rest of the programme lead team to develop materials that allow us to better support and promote our network of organisations and communities across Scotland to create a positive difference locally and nationally in response to COVID-19. These positions could be two separate contracts, but if you have someone you work with frequently we would encourage you to apply collectively.
About the Culture Collective
Culture Collective will help to shape the future cultural life of Scotland’s local communities.
Focussing on community engaged creative activity, Culture Collective will support participatory approaches and projects where creative practitioners and communities work collaboratively. A key element of this will be proactively responding to the impact of COVID-19, providing employment opportunities for creative practitioners and actively engaging people in shaping the future cultural life of their community.

What we need
A website that:
- Acts as an open resource bank – both for those within the network and in those in the wider arts and culture community – to share and access templates, learning and information, and to act as a repository and archive for the project learning;
- Is a key advocacy tool that demonstrates the need for changing investment in the creative ecosystem long term (and after the projects end);
- Is a source of updates and news on the programme; and
- Is easy for us to update and tweak as the project progresses.
A visual brand that:
- Reflects who we are: supportive, welcoming, collaborative and generous, but also fierce advocates for Scottish creative organisations and communities; and
- Is bold, bright and accessible with a logo that gives equal prominence to both English and Gaelic.
