Fixed Term Contract - Ending 31st December 2019

This creative and busy role is an excellent opportunity to build your marketing and communications experience across a variety of fields. We are looking for a Marketing and Communications Officer to coordinate the marketing and communications to support the HTIAC project and to build and maintain positive and productive working relationships across the organisation and external stakeholders.

As Marketing & Communications Officer you will be responsible for delivering a range of marketing and communication activities to raise awareness and profile of the Hear to Inform and Connect (HTIAC) project. You will work with the HTIAC project manager and alongside the central marketing and PR teams to develop and implement activity targeted at both elderly people, voluntary sector organisations and media.

As a core member of the project team, you will support the development of the marketing and communications strategy and plan for the project, with a particular focus on building collaborative networks with the voluntary sector and other, relevant organisations who will be involved in and support the project. You will also have a key role in managing key project events and representing HTIAC at external events.

In 2017, we were awarded £1 million by The National Lottery Community Fund to expand our face-to-face volunteer led information services across London and South East England, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Thanks to this award we developed the Hear to Inform and Connect (HTIAC) project to empower and increase the number of older people who take action to manage their hearing loss.

Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss.  It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.

Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID) is the UK’s largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.
