Duration: Two Years Fixed-Term (extension subject to funding)
Are you a passionate and strategic communicator? Are you able to use data and insight to create impactful campaigns? Can you equip people with the skills and confidence to share their own stories, in a compelling way?
We are looking to recruit a Communications, Engagement and Outreach Manager ready to take on an exciting new role and apply their skills and knowledge to support a busy and ambitious team. You will lead on strategic external communications, including media and campaigns, securing global reach so that the results of our work reaches the people who need it most, support our programme teams to amplify the voices of those we fund, and get stories of ‘what works' – as well as what doesn't – in front of the right people.
We're a global charity, working to find solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support work that goes on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis.
We are based in London and Cardiff but our roles have a global reach. As an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, we work closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen.
You will be given a high degree of autonomy in your work, so to be successful, you will need to be flexible, bold, and work well in a constantly changing environment. You will have strong organisation skills, experience in managing a varied workload, while paying attention to the tiny details.
If you are passionate about using your communications skills and experience to support the humanitarian community and those affected by crises, and you want to be part of an organisation that creates positive change in the humanitarian sector, then join us and we'll give you every opportunity to succeed.
We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of vulnerable people in our work. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.
We recognise the positive value of diversity and promote equality, and are committed to improving employment opportunities for minority groups. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates, as BAME and people with disabilities are currently under-represented throughout our work. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans, and non-binary candidates.
The role will be appointed at the start of the salary band advertised, unless there are exceptional circumstances. This allows for incremental progression within the role and movement up the scale.
