The role

You will support the day-to-day posting on, and engagement with, the charity’s social media channels and peer-to-peer support Forum, working across teams to engage with our supporters and communicate messages to help Breast Cancer Now reach its objectives.

You will also support the Digital Engagement Team in the implementation of social media content plans, feeding into the creation of exciting, informative and engaging content across a variety of media.

In addition, you will also ensure high levels of engagement are maintained across social media and the Forum, working with colleagues in the Digital Engagement team, as well as Clinical, Services, Research Communication and Fundraising teams, to provide appropriate responses to comments or private messages.

About you

To excel in this role, you will have experience of working with social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.) for an established organisation, as well as an interest in wider digital communities and how people use them.

You will have proficiency using digital technology, as well as an eagerness to learn how to use new tools and techniques.

You will need to be able to work accurately and with excellent attention to detail, as well as working unsupervised, using your initiative.
