Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

Sussex Community Foundation is looking for a Marketing & Communications Executive to drive engagement across our stakeholder and audience base. We are an expert local grant-maker, supporting grassroots charities across Sussex. Over the last year we have given grants totalling £4.7million to hundreds of frontline charities to support local people through the pandemic.

As well as responding in a crisis, we are there for the long term – building a sustainable source of funding for local communities for generations to come. We raise funds by providing a bespoke service to high-net-worth people and organisations, helping them to make a difference to the local causes they care about.

This is a new role and the successful post-holder will help us make our relationships with donors even stronger, inspiring them to give more by increasing their opportunities to see the impact of giving through the Foundation. You will develop the Foundation’s content marketing plans, both online and offline, to achieve the overall marketing strategy and organisation goals. This will include implementing practical campaigns to attract and inspire new and existing audiences e.g. using our compelling grant recipients’ stories, to strengthen engagement with our existing stakeholders.

Sussex Community Foundation is one of the fastest growing community foundations in the country. Our success is based on deep and trusting relationships with our donors. Trustees and ambassadors have played a key role, helping spread the word about the charity and by introducing us to potential donors and professional advisors.

The Foundation is deeply committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from people who are disabled, people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, LGBTQ people or those who have lived experience of disadvantage of any kind.
