Job description

The Academy of Social Sciences seeks a pro-active, experienced and thoughtful Senior Campaign Manager to take responsibility for developing and delivering its activities to promote and showcase the social sciences. In so doing you will develop further the momentum and public profile of the Campaign, and advance understanding of the contributions social sciences make to enhancing decision-making, society and lives. The Campaign’s work is targeted primarily to policy makers and other decision-makers across all levels of government, business, research funders and media. This is a role at the heart of the Academy and is the lead staff role for the Campaign.

The task of the Campaign is to help shape and deliver a compelling and evolving public-facing showcase and narrative of the social sciences, so that what they are and what they contribute to society is better understood, valued and used. Our approach is to use substantive research evidence, impact and expertise, including that from within our high-profile Fellowship, to ‘show’ and ‘engage’ rather than to ‘tell’. This is primarily a knowledge exchange and engagement role; it is not a parliamentary lobbying role.

It’s an exciting time to join the Academy as we implement our new strategy and build on significant growth and development in 2020, including notable development in our Campaign activities, outreach and profile under the new chair, Professor Bobby Duffy. It is also an exciting time for the social sciences with their rich roles in informing understanding and policy around the ‘grand challenges’, including the UKs social and economic recovery post Covid; climate change and sustainability; and the so-called ‘levelling-up’ agenda, to name but a few.

We seek an articulate team player who understands what it is like to work in a small, busy charity, who relishes a combination of hand’s on ‘doing’, forward planning and managing, who is adept at working with senior figures and who has the drive, ambition and skills to take the Campaign to the next level. You will bring a passion for applied social sciences, and a broad knowledge of them; strong relationship management skills; excellent organisation, IT and communication skills; creativity and a willingness ‘to do’; and the diplomacy and confidence to work with senior figures in the field.

In return we offer a job with a real purpose, significant responsibility, a warm and friendly context in which to work, a sense of shared endeavour, some flexibility as to how the work is organised, and the opportunity to play an essential role for the social sciences. A sense of humour is welcomed!

The Academy and Campaign

The Campaign was formed in 2011 as the public advocacy arm of the Academy. It is funded by a network of supporters across UK social science: universities, learned societies, publishers and individuals. It draws upon expertise in the Academy Fellowship and beyond and benefits greatly from its high-profile board which provides advice, ideas and helps support delivery. The Campaign is chaired by Prof Bobby Duffy, Director of the Policy Institute and King’s College London.

The Academy of Social Sciences is the national academy of academics, learned societies and practitioners in the social sciences. Our charitable purpose is to promote social science in the UK for the public benefit. Our membership is composed of around 1400 individual Fellows, both academics and practitioners, elected for their contributions to social science, and 46 member Learned Societies which serve individual disciplinary areas in the social sciences. As a charity the Academy exists for public benefit and, as such, it serves the UK social science community as a whole.

The Role

Working closely with the Campaign Chair and Board, the Academy’s Chief Executive (to whom this role reports) and the Head of Policy, you will be involved at the heart of planning the outward-facing campaign activities and will have primary responsibility for delivering them successfully. On a day-to-day basis you will also work closely with the Academy’s Communications Manager.

This is a key role in delivery of the Campaign’s activities and in meeting its strategic plans. You will build the Campaign’s online profile and presence, organise successful events, lead projects and manage relationships with supporters. You will attract and retain supporters and work with those supporters to deliver benefits and create strong partnerships. Above all, your work will help ensure the social sciences are better understood, valued and used and that the Campaign is funded sustainably.

The four areas of responsibility are:

Campaign Board and annual planning

  • Work with the Campaign Board and relevant Academy colleagues to create stimulating annual work/activity plans for the Campaign, aligned with the strategy and available resources, and with clear outcomes, timetable and measures of success.
  • Undertake research and intelligence gathering relevant to the Campaign and its activities.
  • Engage Board members in supporting the delivery of the Campaign activities as their time and expertise permits.
  • Monitor and report on progress with the work plan regularly to Campaign Board meetings

Campaign activities and online presence

  • Create and curate an interesting and high-profile programme, relevant to the Campaign’s themes, and drawing on expertise in the Fellowship and beyond, including potential delivery partners. 
  • Deliver the events programme (e.g., panel discussions, roundtables, lectures) attracting good audience levels and ensuring we reach those communities we seek to engage/influence.
  • Manage the Campaign’s online presence and engagement, including web resources (e.g., comment/think pieces, video interviews) ensuring quality and profile as befits the status of the Campaign and Academy; and making best use of a new website for 2021, working with the Communications Manager.
  • Oversee the production, launch and dissemination of Campaign and co-badged Academy/Campaign publications and reports, including policy reports, working with the Communications Manager.
  • Publicise the Campaign and its activities, managing an effective social media presence, working with the Communications Manager
  • Scope new projects / Campaign activities.

Sponsor and stakeholder engagement

  • Ensure regular communication and dialogue with all Campaign sponsors, keeping them informed and engaged; draft and disseminate an annual report of Campaign activities and outcomes.  
  • Plan and deliver tailored engagement for Gold level sponsors; plan and deliver relevant, high profile and high-quality Strategic Leadership Forum activities for Gold and Silver level sponsors.
  • Build and maintain strong relationships with sponsors’ key contacts; gather and evaluate feedback; retain their support. 
  • Research and recruit new sponsors, including among HEIs and wider sectors of relevance to social sciences, to grow the Campaign’s income sustainably, working with the CEO and Board.
  • Extend the Campaign’s reach to wider stakeholders, for example in policy, business and academia, engaging them in relevant Campaign activities, disseminating reports etc., to target audience groups beyond the Academy Fellowship and Campaign sponsors.

Campaign administration

  • Act as Secretary to the Campaign Board and any associated working groups, arranging and minuting meetings, drafting papers.
  • Manage the timely invoicing of Campaign sponsors; chasing up payment as required.
  • Ensure up to date contact records of sponsors and wider stakeholders are held in the Academy’s CRM, supported by the Academy Administrative Assistant; grow the contact list.

Any other duties as required by the Chief Executive or Campaign Chair within the broad scope of this role.

Terms

The Academy is operating as a virtual organisation for the foreseeable future, with all staff working from home. It is currently envisaged that staff will be able to continue to work flexibly from home in the future if they wish, but they should live within sufficiently close and affordable reach of London to travel in for some face-to-face meetings each month. We will reconsider whether to invest in a small central London office once again when the pandemic is suitably under control. This would provide hot desk facilities for those team members who prefer not to work from home and would facilitate in-person meetings.

The position is permanent, full time, and salaried at £44,000 - £46,000 p.a. Working days are eight hours including an hour for lunch, with some flexibility for when the hours are worked during the day. Employees also benefit from a generous holiday allowance and an employer contribution to the pension scheme. There is a six-month probationary period on all appointed posts.

Skills Requirements

Candidates will be expected to meet many of the following key competencies in addition to having the depth of work experience required for this role:

  • An articulate graduate with a good degree and a lively mind; a degree in a social science discipline is highly desirable.
  • A passion for, and broad understanding of, the social sciences and their contributions to society.
  • Substantial experience in knowledge exchange activities and/or event planning and delivery.
  • Proven relationship building and ability to engage a complex and diverse range of stakeholders.
  • Good judgement and sound diplomatic skills; well versed in working with senior individuals.
  • Proven experience of managing projects to deliver agreed outcomes on time.
  • Expertise in harnessing social media / promotion skills.
  • A very high standard of written and spoken English; excellent communication skills including writing concise web content.
  • An understanding of what it means to work in a small charity.
  • IT friendly and competent; high level of competence in Microsoft Office suite.
  • An ability to grasp the big picture and at the same time to pay attention to detail.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.

Personal attributes sought:

  • Drive, creativity, and persistence. 
  • Well-motivated self-starter, with a pro-active and thoughtful style.
  • Well organised with good time management skills and ability to multi-task.
  • A person who relishes making a difference.
  • Friendly, positive and open manner, and a good team player.
  • A willingness to work hard – this is not a sleepy role.
  • Someone who seeks enjoyment in their work and brings a sense of humour to it.

If you have any questions about the role or application process please contact Dr Rita Gardner, Chief Executive.
