A social enterprise providing B2B services to c200 members and other organisations seeking to attract, recruit and improve representation of women in science, technology and engineering, from the classroom to the boardroom; WISE has ambitious plans for growth. The Communications Director role is a unique opportunity to apply your professional skills in a high-energy, high-profile organisation which punches above its weight to bring about positive change for women, for business, industry and the UK economy.
This is a senior role for someone (male or female) who has the confidence, skills and experience to grow the reach and influence of the WISE campaign through an effective communications and marketing strategy. The strategy is critical to realising our vision of gender balance in STEM and our goal of one million women working in core STEM occupations by 2020. You will lead a small team providing expert communications and marketing support to promote activities and achievements across the business, using online and off-line channels as appropriate to the target audience. As well as taking lead responsibility for delivering value to our members from the WISE Awards, annual Conference and high-profile events with our Royal Patron, we are looking to the Communications Director to grow revenue from a new website and social media platforms. In 2018, Year of Engineering and the centenary of the first British women to get the vote, the new Communications Director will lead an exciting new project to mobilise the passion and commitment of individual women and men who want to support the campaign as role models, champions and ambassadors for WISE.
As a member of the WISE Leadership Team, collaboration with Operations, Membership and Development Directors is essential to the role, providing strategic advice and expert operational support to colleagues and presenting results, lessons learned and recommendations to the WISE Board.
