We’re looking for an exceptional and highly motivated communicator to join our communications and engagement team to deliver across digital, events and internal engagement.

In this role you’ll confidently manage a small team to engage key audiences including 30,000 staff and volunteers and the general public with our work. You’ll report to a Communications and Engagement Manager and have a broad range of responsibility, including:

  • Running innovative internal engagement programmes to engage our 30,000 staff and volunteers through change
  • Designing, delivering and evaluating face to face and online events
