Job description

There is a child hunger crisis in the UK; Covid-19 and the inflated cost of living has magnified an already desperate situation, with as many as 2.5 million children at risk of starting their day having had nothing to eat. A hungry child cannot concentrate. For just 28p, however, Magic Breakfast can provide a healthy breakfast to a child and expert support to their school, opening up hours of crucial lesson time in the morning. Every days we offering breakfasts to over 200,000 children each school day.

Since being established twenty years ago, Magic Breakfast has been steadfastly committed to ensuring no child in the UK is prevented from accessing their education because they are too hungry. We work with schools to target those pupils at risk of hunger and provide them with a healthy breakfast, without barrier or stigma.

Following our new CEO, Lindsey MacDonald joining us in November 2021 we undertook a review of our organisational structure which led to the creation of Policy and Engagement department, combining our communications, campaigning, research and policy functions in one department. Following this and the recent appointment of Jacquie Bance de Vasquez as Director of Policy and Engagement, we have developed a new strategy, restructuring and expanding the team to meet the challenge of ending morning hunger for now, and for good, enabling us to better leverage and build on our social impact, engagement, and influencing.

The Brand and Marketing team is a new team whose purpose is to significantly increase awareness, engagement and reputation of Magic Breakfast.  The postholder will be responsible for leading, the strategic direction and developing a high performing and ambitious team.

As a new role, this is an opportunity to shape our approach, trialling new tactics and pushing the boundaries to make Magic Breakfast a household name. 

We are seeking a creative and dynamic individual with significant experience of developing and managing a brand strategy as well as leading and measuring marketing communications campaigns using audience insight and data to evidence impact and success. In addition, they will have considerable team management experience and will be able to inspire and motivate a growing team.

We have a firm commitment to encouraging fairness and diversity in our workforce and we encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority background, who are underrepresented in our organisation.
