Job description

Are you seeking a creative and highly immersive communications role?

Prospectus is pleased to be partnering once again with the Willow Foundation. We are leading the search for a Communications Officer to succeed within an emerging team following the turn of their 20th year anniversary in 2019.
You will largely support the effective delivery of Willow's communications and marketing programme across a wide range of areas that will hugely support income generation objectives. Relishing the chance to work in a collaborative partnership with colleagues, you will actively communicate the positive impact of the charity's work on an ongoing basis while specifically focussing on community and challenge events, their commercial and retail arm, and of course their flagship 'Special Days' experiences. You will also play a pivotal role in supporting the development of marketing initiatives to increase awareness amongst supporters and potential beneficiaries while also managing working relationships with creative agencies, printers and freelancers. The role entails that you will be the social media advocate for the team across the organisation.

The Communications Officer will be a creative and determined individual who can effectively utilise their genuine interest and demonstrable experience in digital and online communications. With a track record of developing multi-channel communications plans, and in taking campaigns forward from beginning to end, you will have knowledge of best practice for social media, thrive in utilising analytical tools and possess an insight into engagement strategies for targeting different audiences. Design skills are required and you will be adept at creating and overseeing the design of visually appealing content including graphics, an image bank and professional documents such as publications, banners and branded materials.

We are essentially seeking someone who has a flair for pursuing potential opportunities and who has a proactive and solutions focussed approach. A background working within the charity sector is not essential, however an appreciation for the charity's work of the past 20 years is key.

If you are an enthusiastic digital communications professional, eager to invest and develop your skills within a charity that has a truly positive impact, we urge you to apply.
