Do you want to use your marketing skills to make a difference?

We are looking for someone to lead our small Marketing & Comms Team in both a strategic and hands on role.  Working with us will enable you to use your skills and experience to make a vital difference in the lives of local families.

You will be joining us at an interesting time of change and development and will have the opportunity to produce and roll out our new marketing strategy.  You’ll also oversee an important digital transformation project that will be crucial in taking our marketing activities forward, and will support the roll out of our new care strategy.

You’ll be instrumental in raising awareness, helping our care teams to support more families, increasing our income, recruiting and retaining staff and volunteers, and developing our internal communications.

With at least 3 years’ experience in a similar role, you will have demonstrable experience in digital development and marketing, the ability to carry plans through to a successful conclusion, and outstanding communication skills.  An ability to manage competing demands and set clear and measurable targets is essential.  Initiative, flexibility and a ‘hands on’ approach will be invaluable assets.

A full job description and person specification are available in the application pack.
