Job description

Every day in the UK, 14 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth.

Sands is the leading stillbirth and neonatal death charity and exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and creative Digital Engagement Officer who shares our vision for a world where fewer babies die.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your career working in a collaborative and dynamic team.  You will play a key role in our digital engagement campaigns and help manage day-to-day activities on all Sands’ digital platforms.

The post-holder will provide support on all digital engagement activity in order to increase awareness of Sands amongst our target audience. This will include developing and updating content for websites, social media account monitoring, researching the digital environment to spot engagement opportunities and ensuring all communications are consistent with our values.

You will be highly creative with a keen eye for detail, and be able to meet digital engagement targets while managing your time effectively.

With sound experience of web content management systems (preferably Drupal), you will be comfortable using a wide range of social media platforms. The ability to write engaging copy is essential, as is knowledge of SEO and analytics plus basic HTML knowledge.

You will have excellent communication and team-working skills, and have a highly organised approach to your work.   An appetite for continual learning and development is essential, and you must have a high level of empathy for the work that Sands does in order to help us become the leading voice on baby loss in the UK.

We would consider applications for job-sharing or part-time working (at least 24 hours per week).
