Head of Marketing and Communications

London, Greater London (Hybrid)
£45,000 per year
Full-time or part-time (21 - 35 hours (0.6 - FT) hours and working pattern are negotiable within these parameters )
Job description

Ever been in an organisation that doesn’t value communications or where communications are often an afterthought? This isn’t one of them…

Reach exists to inspire and connect potential volunteers and trustees with charities and good causes, to help address some of society’s biggest issues. And we know that great communications, branding and storytelling sit at the heart of that.

As Head of Marketing and Communications, you will be the driving force of our communications and our sole, respected, go-to communications specialist. You will have the opportunity to lead our communications strategy - keeping our chosen audience, values, message and brand positioning in mind - whilst doing the hands-on work of creating campaign materials, writing impactful content, sourcing case studies and managing the input of other creatives.

And while you’ll always wish you had more budget and time, the beauty of working in comms at Reach is that we are small and have clarity of purpose, aligned messaging between our areas of work and light-touch sign-off processes. You will have the autonomy to shape our communications strategy and to flex your creative muscles by implementing and testing it.

What Reach does

Through our bespoke online service, charities and groups find volunteers with expertise they could not otherwise access - from trustee positions to technical and creative roles. At the same time, we inspire thousands of people to volunteer their skills every year, to make change. Last year over 13,000 new volunteers signed up to Reach - more than three times the pre-pandemic rate. 

Working at Reach

We are a friendly, deeply collaborative team of 10 staff, supported by volunteers, freelancers and a strong board. We live our values: bold and experimental, people-centred, collaborative and honest. You will be encouraged and supported to take risks and to learn and develop, and enjoy plenty of autonomy.

Reach Volunteering is committed to becoming a more diverse, inclusive and equal organisation, and to helping to increase equity, diversity and inclusion in civil society. We have put equity at the heart of our new vision, values and beliefs. We welcome people of all backgrounds, identities and experiences. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates who are disabled, from the global majority, who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community, and / or identify as from a lower or disadvantaged socioeconomic background as these groups are currently under-represented on our staff team. We would also welcome candidates who identify as male, for the same reasons.

We encourage flexible working and many of our staff work their hours in different ways. We are open to discussing what would work for you and be possible for the role.

Other benefits include:

●       26 days annual leave, plus three bonus days at Christmas (plus Bank Holidays).

●       Up to six days volunteering leave per annum.



We are looking for someone with a proven track record of working effectively with leadership teams and influencing strategic direction to deliver highly effective marketing and communications. You’ll be an effective digital marketer, with the ability to integrate strategy with day-to-day work

Just as important is *how* you work: you will be great at collaborating, prioritising, and flexing your priorities as needed. You’ll be resourceful, and relish creativity bourne from the constraints of working in a small team with big ambitions. You will share our values and work in a way that embeds them. 

To apply 

To make our recruitment process as fair as possible, and to reduce bias, we will shortlist based on your responses to a question about how you would approach a typical task for someone in this role, and why you are attracted to this role. Your responses will be anonymised before shortlisting.
