Job description

Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.

There are an estimated 136,000 men, women and children trapped in modern slavery in the UK and 40.3 million people affected worldwide by modern slavery. The Clewer Initiative (TCI) is the Church of England’s response to combating modern slavery, working with dioceses and wider church networks to raise awareness of modern slavery, identify victims, and help provide victim support and care.

At TCI we believe that the solutions to modern slavery already exist within the community and that the Church of England, which is present in all communities, has a primary responsibility in leading these efforts.

Established in 2016 we’ve already had significant success. Our training courses have engaged churches, statutory organisations such as the GLAA and National Crime Agency, and community activists committed to making their towns and neighbourhoods slavery-free. Our Safe Car Wash App has been downloaded 30,000 times and enables users to report slavery at hand car washes at the touch of a button. We’re now delivering our Clewer Journey in different parts of the world to support victims and build community resilience. Learn More >

Introduction

We’re looking for a Digital Media Officer who is passionate about our cause, and who can help share our content, grow our social media channels and inspire our digital communities to take action against modern slavery.

As Digital Media Officer, you will work with the Communications Manager to deliver TCI’s social media strategy, create content and assets, and support with communications work as required.

You will be a creative thinker, enthusiastic about using your story-telling skills to engage audiences with our work. You’ll be confident communicating with audiences across a range of platforms from statutory professionals on LinkedIn to young social activists on Tik Tok.

As an entrepreneurial self-starter, you’ll work with us to test new ideas and use those findings to develop brilliant content. Crucially you will be excited about the potential of digital media to inspire social activism and help victims of modern slavery.

This post is offered on a fixed-term contract expected to last for three years.

We are taking a flexible approach to work, with many teams opting for a hybrid approach to their working week, with a mixture of home and office-based working. However members of TCI are expected to come into the office at least one day a week on Wednesdays.

Interviews will be held w/c 27 June 2022.

The Church of England is for everyone and we want to reflect the diversity of the community the Church serves across the whole country. Therefore, while of course we welcome all applications from interested and suitably experienced people, we would particularly welcome applicants from UK Minority Ethnic Backgrounds. 

We offer a unique environment with opportunities for continuous learning, generous annual leave for work life balance, season ticket loans and a range of benefits including discounted entry to attractions and what we feel is a market leading package when it comes to our pension scheme.
