Marketing & Communications Manager
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice has been on a major upward trajectory in recent years – more children supported, more major hospitals partnered with, and more supporters donating. We’ve transformed from being an enthusiastic start-up, to a serious player delivering major impact. So what next? And how will the successful applicant to this role play their part?
Firstly, we need to communicate in a highly engaging way with Noah’s Ark’s thousands of existing stakeholders – strengthening their commitment to the charity. Secondly, we need to reach a much larger audience to fulfill the charity’s objectives, which are now far more ambitious than they were just a few years ago. In both cases we must tell stories that cut through, build trust and, most importantly, foster loyalty.
That’s where you come in.
We are looking for a prolific and talented content creator to write and produce content that captures the imagination. You will lead our “always on” digital and offline marketing activity, creating a daily drumbeat which will build the Noah’s Ark brand.
You will sustain and develop the charity’s voice across multiple-channels so you must be a savvy wordsmith with the ability to take the seed of a story and make it sing.
Relevant experience and technical aptitude is very important of course but at this seniority and salary level we’re not expecting you to have huge levels of experience in every area. However, you will have succeeded in your career so far, be eager to take on responsibilities outside of your comfort zone, and back yourself to develop quickly. Significant involvement with digital campaigns (content, distribution and analytics) is essential. Some experience of marketing automation is highly desirable.
As explained in the job pack (see below), we’re looking to change the way we do things in Marketing & Communications quite radically. If playing an important role in this exciting next step for a charity delivering transformational outcomes for London’s most unwell babies and children appeals, we’d love to hear from you.
