We have a vacancy for a Communications and Marketing Manager who will join the Senior Management Team based at our offices in London.

They will lead on the development and delivery of a communication and marketing strategy, strategic planning documents and will  report to relevant committees. They will support the President’s regular communications to members and will be the lead for GDPR compliance across the organisation.
