Helping Carers to Live Well is our organisational aim. We provide a targeted service to adult and young carers, aged 5 years and up. Carers provide vital emotional and practical support to a family member with a care need. Their care role can have an impact on their health, wellbeing, employment, education and social opportunities. We are looking for someone with the skills and ability to offer a coordinated approach in supporting staff and carers with a professional communications service.
As the Communications and Information Co-ordinator you will be skilled in working with multiple teams to design, manage and deliver digital and print communications. Managing our website will be high on your list of priorities too. You will regularly work with the CEO, workshop coordinator, senior support workers and team leader to ensure our message is delivered clearly and persuasively to professionals and the local community. And, by adding your expertise to event planning and delivery, you’ll ensure our profile remains high.
You will have a proven knowledge of communication, information, marketing and media, an ability to use office and publishing software (and ideally Adobe creative suite), experience of administrating websites (ideally WordPress) and strong communication and relationship building skills. Using all your skills, you will work with the management team and young and adult carers support teams to deliver a professional and effective communications service.
You will be self-motivated and positive in your approach to working with different teams, organisations, trustees and occasionally carers, and have a willingness to embrace our organisational values. Strong administrative, time management, IT and organisational skills are essential.
In return, we offer regular supervision, training and professional development for this rewarding position, along with generous annual leave, work based pension or employer’s contribution to your pension scheme and above all, a supportive and friendly working environment.
