The Communications and Fundraising Officer is a new role at Pembroke House. You will be responsible for supporting and driving the charity’s communications and fundraising function to effectively reach and engage local groups, partners, residents and donors; to amplify our projects in the neighbourhood; and meet fundraising goals.
Pembroke House isn’t looking to broadcast messages to marketing segments, we’re building alliances, provoking engagement and inspiring action in our neighbourhood, the borough and country.
The charity has a long-term partnership with Small Axe: a not-for-profit campaigning organisation. They play the role of “Virtual Head of Comms”. The successful applicant will be supported and trained by Small Axe to apply innovative national campaigning and organising tools to build alliances and start conversations in our neighbourhood.

The person we appoint to this role will have a passion for using multiple communication tools and platforms to engage people in the work of Pembroke House. You will be able to develop narratives that allow us to speak about our work in different contexts, while maintaining the space for our work to grow and develop.
You will have a catchy enthusiasm and can do attitude, that allows you to think outside the box and try new things. You will be open to learning and growing as part of a team. You will be well organised and able to manage competing demands on your time, and be confident working unsupervised.
You will enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, engaging with different communities, from faith leaders to local parents, sensitively and with respect.
