Job description

Communications Officer – Assets 

Salary: £26k pro rata (0.6 FTE/3 days 1 year contract)

Location: Reading

Closing Date: 6th October 2019

We eat with our eyes, so the saying goes. In this role you’ll help people feast on our content in a way that inspires them to act. 

We need to share our stories with audiences across a range of channels and in a range of formats. Your role will be to curate our assets so we can find them and use them when needed, and make sure we’re keeping up with the demand for new assets.   Broadly speaking this covers crafting film and photography briefs, booking our team of volunteers and freelancers who can deliver and then ensuring that the finished product is stored and used properly.  The same applies for materials production – you’ll keep an eye on quality, manage supplier relationships, make sure briefs meet requirements and help us deliver something compelling and engaging.

You’ll get involved across the board helping find the right images for supporters and campaigns and making sure the visuals we use match up to the words for the stories we are telling. and making sure others can find the images for themselves through our asset library, which you will look after for us.

In an ideal world you’ll have film editing experience for smaller quicker tasks and be able to craft and create quickly in Photoshop/Adobe Illustrator and Canva for smaller projects and reformatting.  A creative thinker with an eye for detail, you’ll balance your time on planning and delivery, chip in to help on campaigns, crafting web copy and, if you have the eye for it, proofreading and checking, too.

We’re a busy team in marketing and work closely with our colleagues in fundraising and wishgranting, you’ll need to remain calm under pressure and as some of our stories are emotional, have a high degree of emotional resilience.

Occasionally we will ask you to help out at some of our events which may be out of hours.

Hours: This role is a 1-year contract and 3 days per week (0.6 FTE).  We can agree this work pattern to suit the needs of the business and your commitments. As well as being part time, as an organisation, we offer agile working options
