This is the ideal role for a project manager from a creative or design background to take on a new challenge and support the work of an organisation that helps thousands of animals.

This is an exciting time to join us as we embark on a three year journey across our rehoming, behavioural and veterinary services. You will be uniquely placed to showcase and create a fantastic narrative for others to follow our progress.

The Role

As the Creative Resources Manager, you will lead our Creative Team in the creation of communication material which promotes and tells the story of Blue Cross.
