This is an exciting opportunity to lead the development and delivery of a digital output strategy for Destination Tweed, a major investment and ambitious five-year legacy project built around the idea of the River Tweed Trail and associated environmental improvement and engagement projects. Destination Tweed is an ambitious five-year legacy project built around the idea of the River Tweed Trail, a new long-distance source to sea path which roughly follows the River Tweed from its source high on the hills above Moffat, to where it flows into the North Sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed. The project comprises a collection of thirteen projects that will deliver benefit for the environment, community and economy and is built upon a partnership approach to project delivery.

We want to develop content that will engage a local, regional, national and international audience. You will be an excellent communicator, with a creative flair and a keen eye for detail. A knowledge of the Tweed Catchment may be advantageous.
