Job description

Head of Global Brand and Communications

Hope and Homes for Children are looking for a Global Brand and Communications leader to join us and make families, never orphanages the new narrative.

Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. Put simply: the last thing an orphanage can provide is the first thing a child needs - someone to love them. Science shows what we all know, that the bond between a child and their family is vital for their development. Decades of evidence proves that orphanages harm children, subjecting them to high levels of sexual and physical abuse, extreme neglect, and stunting of their physical, emotional, and psychological development. Some children in orphanages will never even learn to talk or walk.

Position: Head of Global Brand and Communications
Location: Flexible, with some travel to our main office near Salisbury and our London office
Job type: Full Time, Permanent
Hours: 37.5 hours per week maximum
Salary: circa £55,000 to £60,000 depending on experience.

About the role:

You’ll bring thorough leadership to our global brand and communications team and cross-organisational Strategic Communications Editorial team. You’ll inspire Hope and Homes for Children’s best strategic and creative brand and communications work whilst honing and developing the communication skill-base and facilitating our entire organisational staff to become our greatest brand ambassadors. You’ll own our brand strategy thinking and action with direct accountability for strategic communications, content and creative services and our multi-channel marketing. You’ll business partner with our advocacy, fundraising and programme teams to deliver defined business objectives through the perfect mix of exceptional audience insight, powerful story and targeted media execution.

About you:

You’ll join a brave, can-do organisation and do work that matters day in, day out. You’ll be encouraged to think and act big and you’ll be mandated and supported to make things happen. You’ll work with dedicated, passionate champions who are ready to take bold steps to inspire change by advocating and engaging individuals, communities and organisations across the globe in the foundational importance of family love for children.

You’ll be a forward-thinking change maker, excited to lead a small, diverse team as part of a nimble, innovation focussed organisation. You’ll thrive on bringing brand and communication theory and action together and you won’t be afraid to challenge convention. You’ll understand the value of thoughtful planning, be able to interpret data to draw out the most important communication insights and execute with excellence, always.

You’ll live and breathe content, be curious and inventive in how brands build engagement and stories are told and you’ll invest in continuously developing your knowledge of the communications context in which you work. In a world where digital brand engagement continues to grow, you’ll have a proven skills and experience in leading digital change projects and increasing audience activation through digital channels. You’ll partner with colleagues to achieve the most impact for children and families by weaving the achievement of multiple objectives together to make the story of institutional care of children unacceptable.

If you believe every child belongs in a family, join us as we consign orphanages to history.

About Hope and Homes for Children:

Children never belong in orphanages. Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. With your support we can keep families together, reunite families and build new families. Help children grow up in families where they belong. Always families. Never orphanages.
