As Communications Officer, you will support all aspects of communications, managing the social media output and engagement on behalf of the Association.

This is a varied and exciting role in which you will work closely with the Chief Executive to devise and implement campaigns to promote events, publications and BAPM membership opportunities to healthcare professionals in perinatal care within the UK and internationally.

You will take the lead on the Association’s social media strategy by managing, reviewing and updating the various platforms BAPM uses, creating and developing content for the website and newsletters, whilst managing the Association’s Twitter account.

Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, you will maintain a content calendar for BAPM and track relevant analytics, producing reports for the Executive Committee as required. You will also assist the Chief Executive in recruiting and supporting BAPM ambassadors to promote the Association’s work at a regional level.

With a communications background, you should have experience of leading social media campaigns and of producing compelling content for websites. You should also have a demonstrable understanding of Google and social media analytics for measuring success, using these to improve the performance and enhance the impact of content and campaigns.

Degree educated or with equivalent experience, you should have excellent administrative and organisational skills along with first class communication and report writing abilities. Self-motivation and the ability to work independently, whilst also as part of a team, are essential.

The British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) is a professional association and charity established in 1976 to improve the standard of perinatal care in the UK.  Its members are neonatologists, obstetricians, nurses, midwives and other health professionals who work in practice, teaching and research into all aspects of perinatal medicine.  It is a specialty group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and has office space at the RCPCH offices in Holborn, London. BAPM is run by a small office team supported by many volunteers.

The BAPM wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the Association is particularly keen to receive applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions all staff are currently working from home.

Please apply early as we may bring the closing date forward should we receive a high volume of applications.:

Closing date: 29 April 2021, 23.59

Initially this is being offered on a 12 month fixed term contract.
