London, Greater London

Permanent, Full-time
Job description

Based in our London office when restrictions lift, with homeworking available (subject to meeting homeworking assessment requirements)

Too many people miss out on the essential rehabilitation they need after major events like strokes and heart attacks, or to manage a condition such as arthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

You might be one of those people.

One in four people in the UK now live with a long-term health condition, so the chances are you at least know someone whose quality of life could be improved through better care outside of hospital.

 We are working tirelessly to deliver change – and now we need your help to make it happen.

 About you
We’re looking for a talented Strategic Communications Manager to work on our community rehabilitation influencing programme.

You need to be a problem-solver, able to create a plan with tactics to target different audiences and political influencers. You also need to be interested in, and able to write and create, high quality content.

You need strong stakeholder relationship skills - because as part of the Community Rehabilitation Alliance we helped form we work with nearly 50 other partner organisations.

You should have an excitement for communicating using digital platforms, but have a sound grounding across other disciplines to work with our talented teams through the organisation.

With previous extensive experience of successfully managing a significant health or social care campaign or similar type of experience, you will have in-depth knowledge of how to use digital and non-digital campaigns to influence behaviour and effect policy changes.

The ability to communicate at all levels and to a range of audiences in a compelling and authentic way is essential, so you will need to have the skills necessary to analyse data and produce reports to substantiate your message.

You will be able to work collaboratively across the organisation and will offer support to colleagues and the accountable Assistant Director, to enable them to use qualitative and quantitative data to gain insight into the audience.

Finally, you will have the courage to take risks, follow through on what you say you will deliver, be open to learning and looking for an organisation with a culture where all of that is encouraged.
