We’re on the hunt for an enthusiastic Social Media Officer to join our team and manage our social media channels. We want someone brilliant who can use their flair for creative content and copywriting, along with their understanding of social strategy and planning, to shape and lead our social media presence.

Summary

It’s an exciting time to be involved with our ambitious and growing charity as we scale up and deliver new services and partnerships, which will deliver real impact on the lives of seriously ill children and their families. To support this growth, we need to raise the profile of the charity and awareness of the vital work that we do. Our Social Media Officer will play a pivotal role in helping us to achieve this goal, and there’s a real opportunity to make your mark.

You’ll plan, create and schedule content across all our social media channels (following our brand guidelines and tone of voice) to create an engaging experience for our audiences, promote our service to beneficiaries and encourage supporters to get involved. You’ll have your ear to the ground on charity sector and social trends, and proactively come with ideas to optimise and improve our online presence across the board.

We need someone who is a self-starter with impeccable attention to detail and who can confidently strike the balance of the strategy and planning side of the role, with the creative and execution side.
