Job description

This role is critical in supporting the wider organisation to distil key stories from our work and research, creating content and promoting our strategic organisational objectives with a focus on strong storytelling and digital. This role will utilise the power of digital and external communications to support projects and events and engage new and existing stakeholders with UK Youth’s varied work.

The ideal candidate will bring previous experience of adapting complex information for different audiences into creative content, as well as working with high-profile stakeholders.

We are also keen to hear from candidates who have previous experience using Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop and InDesign especially) too.

Who we are

UK Youth is a leading charity that exists to ensure all young people are equipped to thrive and

empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. We work with others to ensure that the youth sector is strengthened, supported, and that provision is youth-led, evidence-informed and delivers high-quality outcomes.

UK Youth plays a unique role in addressing; the lack of investment in the youth sector, the lack of cross sector understanding in how youth work makes a difference and the limited opportunities to embed effective solutions. These factors lead to mass inequality of access to youth services for young people. To find more about us and how we make an impact, please visit UK Youth Website.
