Screen Scotland is looking for a Screen Production and Skills Officer to assist in the delivery and development of Screen Scotland’s Skills Strategy at a time of significant growth in the sector.

Screen Scotland is the public agency supporting the development of the screen sector in Scotland, from education through skills and talent development, to production, distribution and exhibition.

You will collaborate with the senior leadership team and work closely with industry and associated partners to devise bespoke training approaches and offer guidance through forums such as the skills working groups to be convened under the Skills Strategy.

You will adopt a pro-active approach to Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion, working closely with Creative Scotland colleagues and actively addressing under-representation and exclusion in Scotland’s film & TV sector with the aim of diversifying the workforce.

You will have an awareness of additional funding sources, and how to access these, from both Scottish and UK governments, Screen Scotland’s partner agencies and industry initiatives to enhance the delivery of outcomes under the Skills Strategy.

Knowledge of the screen sector in Scotland is essential, and an understanding of community groups, training providers and strategic partners within Scotland and across the UK would be advantageous.

This is an excellent opportunity for the right individual to become an expert in skills and training strategies and be a leading figure in the industry in this sector.
