Working closely with Leadership Team and Board of Trustees, the Head of Communications and Engagement will be responsible for overseeing the organisations ambitions to create an impactful engagement strategy that amplifies its position within the real estate industry over the coming three years.
You’ll work across the organisation, driving the ambitious engagement strategy forward to really change the conversation between the charity and the property industry. You’ll work with all departments to provide direction and support to improve fundraising and impact outcomes including developing marketing plans for growth for events, creating holistic engagement plans for the businesses that supports and embeds impact in the hearts and minds of supporters.
This is a pivotal role in the Team, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to put their stamp on communications as the charity evolves and grows, in line with the new strategic aims.
Due to the current situation, staff are currently all working remotely but plan to return to the central London office in the near future but expectations on colleagues to be in the office will be minimal (at least once a month). Instead, you will be able to design a working pattern that suits you, your family, the needs of the job and the team. We hope this encourages candidates from across the UK to apply.
As Head of Communications and Engagement, you will be an experienced, senior communications and marketing professional with good experience across the whole mix including digital, social media and PR. Ideally with charity sector experience, but certainly with a keen interest in the cause and passion for communications for good.
You’ll be an effective, passionate and thoughtful communicator. Leading a small and professional team, you will provide support, challenge, and development to the colleagues for whom you have management responsibility and promote effective collaboration in all that you do. We’re looking for a confident, positive self-starter, who is good at looking for solutions, a great-people person and brilliant planner.
The charity has an ambitious mission to end youth homelessness, so it’s an exciting time to join this dynamic and growing organisation. Along with an excellent benefits package, there are career development and flexible working opportunities.
