About the Centre for Youth Impact
The Centre for Youth Impact is committed to working collaboratively to progress thinking and practice in impact measurement and quality improvement in youth work and provision for young people. Our vision is for all young people to have access to high quality programmes and services that improve their life chances.
The Centre for Youth Impact was formed in 2014 as a partnership initiative and became an independent charity in 2018. The Centre’s nine-strong team works nationally, including supporting Regional Network Leads across England. Last year, we began to expand our work into Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Learning and collaboration is key to the Centre’s approach – creating and informing a more inclusive and powerful conversation about evaluation and impact, which is part of the day-to-day dialogue within and between youth sector organisations. The Centre is currently engaged in over 20 live projects with a wide range of partner organisations and hosts regular events virtually (and in person, pre-Covid) around the country.
About the role
We want to appoint a part-time Communications Officer on a fixed-term basis to provide the day-to-day communications and marketing function at the Centre. This is a new post that will contribute both capacity and skills to the Centre’s dynamic team – particularly support in writing engaging content and managing the Centre’s website and social media channels, as well as generating the monthly newsletter. We want to take our communications activity to the next level – reach more people, share more ideas (our own and others’) and support more people to get involved. The postholder will work across the entire team, supporting on comms for individual projects, the production of training materials and maintaining the Salesforce database.
We’re looking for an organised and confident communications professional with excellent written and verbal communication skills and exceptional attention to detail – we really, really care about what we produce! Our ideal candidate would be happy working autonomously and have experience of working in a busy and fast-paced team managing multiple different tasks or activities. We are looking for someone who will initiate, write, edit, co-ordinate and publish content across various channels, suggest ways to increase engagement and raise the Centre’s presence and profile in the sectors we want to influence. You’ll need to be helpful and enthusiastic in your approach to work, as well as flexible and people oriented. We’re a cheerful, open and hard-working team.
