About Jimmy’s Cambridge
Jimmy’s Cambridge is one of Cambridge’s leading providers of support and accommodation to people who are and have been experiencing homelessness. We aim to help people get people off the streets and into their own home, backed up with all the support we can offer from our talented and committed team of staff, volunteers and partners.
This exciting new role is an exceptional opportunity to build, shape and deliver Jimmy's communications offer, in order to help meet our ambitious aims. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, you will use your passion, experience, and expertise to implement a new communications strategy. This will maximise engagement with a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders – supporting us to develop greater community links – and supporting fundraising efforts to run transformative services and projects.
As a community organisation, maximising engagement and communication with our local community is critical to our success. Whilst the role would suit a communications professional, fundraising experience in helping organisations to increase and diversify income streams, steward existing supporters and identify and securing new funding opportunities would be a bonus.
A key part of the role will also be to ensure the impact of our work is clearly communicated to a range of audiences, allowing key stakeholders fully appreciate the difference we make to our local community.
You will have a proven track record of successfully communicating and advocating on behalf of an organisation – either commercial or charitable - and demonstrable experience of customer engagement, and in developing and delivering communications campaigns. Fundraising experience or knowledge of the charitable sector will be a bonus.
You will be a great communicator, with excellent interpersonal skills, able to build relationships and create inspiring campaigns. Jimmy’s has a wonderful breadth of stakeholders that all help keep us doing the work we do, and you will know how to ensure these are valued and are given the opportunity to understand and appreciate the impact their support is making.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
