Job Title: Communications Officer
Working For: Living Wage Foundation
Salary: £23,000 - £25,000 including London Weighting
The Living Wage is an independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. The Living Wage campaign was launched by London Citizens in 2001 and aims to ensure low paid workers have enough money to get by and enough time for community and family life.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK, that employers choose to pay on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates employers that pay the real Living Wage through an accreditation programme which awards the Living Wage Employer Mark.
The independently-calculated rates are announced during Living Wage Week each November when we celebrate our growing network of Living Wage employers. There are now over 3000 accredited Living Wage employers across the UK which has secured pay rises for over 150,000 employees.
The Living Wage Foundation has an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic team as a Communications Officer. We are looking for an exceptionally motivated and organised individual who enjoys working in a fast-paced, high profile communications environment.
The role will involve developing, drafting and updating content for our website, newsletters, press and social media channels. The position would suit an applicant with strong digital communication skills, marketing experience and enthusiasm for engaging supporters through social networks.
