How do I upload an opportunity?

Why haven't I received the newsletter?
Your spam settings could be re-directing the email to your junk folder. Please add opportunities@creativescotland.com to your safe senders list to ensure this doesn't happen again. Also make sure that you have ticked the box under your Profile settings that confirms you are happy to receive notifications.

How do I change my account settings?

Why do Creative Scotland allow unpaid positions on the site?
Ads on the Opportunities site are uploaded by third parties and moderated by Creative Scotland. We will only approve voluntary positions if they are upfront about being unpaid and also offer a genuine opportunity to gain experience or collaborate. If you feel that an advertiser isn't being honest about what they are offering, please contact opportunities@creativescotland.com or use the "Report this ad" link found on every page and we'll look into it.

Why is the website not displaying correctly?
This website should work on most web browsers and devices. However, if you are using Internet Explorer, please ensure 'compatibility view' is switched off under the Tools menu. If you need assistance, please contact opportunities@creativescotland.com.

Can I change my email address?
Unfortunately it is not currently possible to change the email address associated with your account. If you need to change your email address, you will need to register a new account.
