The RHS is a national charity with a mission to inspire everyone to grow, as it is vital to our wellbeing, the environment and the happiness of us all. This dynamic role is based in our passionate communities and schools team and will ideally be based at RHS Garden Wisley, Surrey or our London office near Victoria with frequent travel to Wisley.

The role will support our national school’s programme, the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, by creating exciting and inspiring communications, competitions and initiatives to help get young people growing.

If you are a communications expert with a passion for the environment or plants, then we’d love to hear from you.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic schools and communities team to support on all areas of our communications and marketing. You will work with the Senior Communications Officer and Engagement Coordinator to deliver exciting communications that will increase engagement with our audiences, manage and bring to life our key projects and activities, as well as oversee the content creation for our website, social media platforms and newsletters.

We’re looking for someone with experience in delivering communications that have increased engagement with audiences and an excellent understanding of marketing tools and techniques.
