A well-known UK charity is looking for two Senior Communications and Engagement Officers to join them on a 12-month contract, paying a salary of £30,000 - £32,000.

This is a pivotal time to join the organisation as they are in the early phases of two large transformation programmes, one focused on the organisation’s overall strategy and the other on a re-brand. The hiring manager is looking for two Comms and Engagement Officers to lead on the communications, both strategic and tactical, for these change programmes. The ability to embed the change and engage employees throughout is required.

Sitting in a team of three and reporting into the Internal Communications Manager, with a dotted line to the programme teams, this role will suit someone who has a passion for working for an organisation with a purpose as this charity is doing some truly inspiring things. The ability to take the lead and work autonomously, whilst influencing senior leaders and advising on internal and change communications best practice is also required. Although these positions have no line management responsibility, they will be seen as influential positions and the successful candidates will be expected to lead by example and mentor and guide more junior team members.

This role is remote and can be done from anywhere in the country. However, there will be a requirement to travel to various sites over the UK at least once a month.

Key skills and experience

  • Experience leading communications on a change programme.
  • Knowledge of IC and change communications best practice.
  • Third sector/ NFP experience is desired but not essential.
  • Stakeholder management and analysis.
  • Content creation and channel management.
  • Excellent attention to detail.
