This role would suit individuals with at least a years’ experience in marketing and/or communications, and who have a passion for social mobility and are used to operating in a fast paced environment. The successful candidate will take responsibility for delivering our plans for student attraction, and for marketing upReach and our work throughout a range of different platforms and networks. They will have the opportunity to steer the creative direction of our student-facing comms as a key member of a dynamic and growing national team.

Early applications are encouraged as we may interview and/or appoint before the closing date.

Person Specification 

This position would be suited to individuals who are committed to upReach’s mission. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about social-mobility and believe that background should not be a barrier to graduate employment. 

To be successful it is anticipated that you would have at least a years’ experience within Marketing and/or Communications. You should be proactive, resilient and used to managing competing priorities within a varied workload.  You should be flexible and willing to perform varying duties depending on the shifting needs of the charity.

Essential Skills/Experience:

  1. Experience working in a fast-paced environment and working independently to find solutions to problems.

  2. At least 1 years experience working within marketing and/or communications or within a Student Attraction role.

  3. Ability to turn complex ideas into concise and effective communication materials

As our beneficiaries are all undergraduates, a good understanding of the university experience is essential, although it is not necessary that this was acquired through personally gaining a degree.

Desirable Skills/Experience:

  1. Experience of running social media platforms and campaigns.

  2. Experience working with a communications team in the charity sector

  3. Sound knowledge of GDPR legislation and regulations.
