About Access Industry Management & Services (AIMS)

Every day, millions of people across the world climb a ladder, build a tower scaffold or find another way to work at height. They're doing all sorts of jobs, from builders to steeplejacks to home DIYers.

Sadly, every day, some of them fall. In the UK, 99 people every day fall from height at work and it's still the leading cause of workplace fatalities.

At AIMS, our purpose is simple.

We want everyone who works at height to come back down safely. We believe that every single one of them deserves safe equipment, specialist training and expert guidance, as well as support if they do have an accident.

That's why we manage six not-for-profit organisations that each have one thing in common - making work at height safer. Four are membership associations - PASMA, the Ladder Association, ATLAS and SLPTG. One is a registered charity - No Falls Foundation. And finally there's Test & Research Centre, a specialist facility for access equipment testing and training.

We're looking for a Marketing and Communications Assistant to carry out a broad range of marketing and communications activities across all our brands.

You'll be located in our friendly Glasgow HQ, although home or hybrid working is likely to remain an option. The office is a 6-minute walk from Charing Cross train station and 12 minutes from St George's Cross subway station. There's also free on-site parking. This role will involve occasional travel within the UK.

Benefits include 8% employer pension contribution on top of your salary, private medical care, training/development opportunities, life insurance, business casual dress code and 33 days' holiday - plus your birthday off, of course!
