About the role:
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced, creative and highly driven Communications and Marketing Manager to join Kinship to help grow brand awareness and increase its impact in securing support and recognition for kinship carers.
This is a fun, varied and fast-paced role in a growing charity within the newly-formed Communications and External Affairs directorate. The Communications and Marketing Manager will shape and deliver marketing strategies targeted at kinship carers and other key audiences to increase engagement and support and promote its services and advice. Central to the role will be the development and stewardship of the organisation’s Kinship Community of more than 10,000 kinship carers who are central to everything the charity does.
This is an exciting time to join Kinship as the organisation starts to deliver its 2022-25 three-year strategy, and with kinship care more in the spotlight than ever before. You’ll be part of an ambitious, influential and focused communications and external affairs team working closely with colleagues across the organisation and kinship carers.
You’ll be a skilled self-starter who thinks strategically while keeping on top of the detail. You’ll have a hunger for staying abreast of communications and marketing best practice and digital innovation, unafraid to test news ideas and approaches.
You’ll love collaborating as part of a team with a can-do and supportive attitude and will be strongly committed to Kinship’s values.
We will guarantee interviews to any candidates with experience of kinship care (either of being in kinship care or of being a kinship carer) who demonstrate that they meet the essential skills and experience outlined below.
Kinship is the leading charity in England and Wales for kinship carers – relatives and friends who raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it. We’re always there to help with the complicated and stressful decisions that so many kinship families have to make, as well as to celebrate the good times.
Working alongside kinship carers and the children they raise, with their voice and views at the fore, we build communities of support and give everything we have to fight for each family and their rights, as well as to raise awareness of kinship care and secure better support for all those playing this critical role.
