This exciting role will involve being responsible for executing impactful campaigns and content that promote the work of the charity, identifying opportunities to raise awareness of the charity’s work and gain media coverage or exposure through press, radio, online and TV broadcast and act as a brand guardian, ensuring consistency in the way the charity presents itself externally to the world in all forms and across all department activity.
