Job description

Job Title: Communications Manager - Programmes & Partnership
Location: London
Hours: 35
Salary: £30,000 to £37,500 per annum (dependent on experience)
Closing Date: 22nd July 2020 (17:00 BST)
Contract Type: Fixed-term (12 months)
Interview Date: 29th July 2020


Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the world’s only movement for every girl and any girl because we believe that each of them deserves to be the best they can be. Free to make what they want from the Movement, girls learn by doing, make friends and have fun. In safe, local spaces, girls develop the skills and attitudes to change themselves, their communities and our world.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) keeps the global Movement thriving, united and growing.

This role operates within the context of a volunteer-led global charitable organisation with 150 Member organisations.


This is an exciting opportunity to provide the full spectrum of communications services and support for global programmes and strategic partnerships within a large, complex international membership organisation.

In this role, you will raise the profile and visibility of our girl-centred programmes, Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting worldwide and our funding partners. You will do this through the planning, commissioning, production and co-ordination of web and media content across both print and digital publications.

This role will also be expected to provide communications expertise and advice to the Global Programmes and Strategic Partnerships teams. The work will be closely aligned with the WAGGGS Communications Manager, who focuses on communication with and about our 150 Member organisations.


As the successful candidate, you will have proven experience and skills in planning and delivering high-quality and successful social media and wider digital and print communications. You will be motivated to use your skills so that stories of impact of our work are crafted and told, and girls’ voices are heard. You will be ready to use your initiative, experience and creativity to take our communications to a new level.

You will be adept at working closely with colleagues across the organisation to successfully deliver on internal communications priorities.

We are often told that what we do is a well-kept secret – we want you to help us change that, so that more people know about our programmes and partnerships and the impact girls and their volunteer leaders have as they learn, act and advocate for change.


- 26 days’ annual leave plus public holidays
- Flexible working
- 5% generous matched pension contribution
- Life assurance
- Season ticket loan
