Job Title: Campaigns Manager

Working For: National Literacy Trust, a Client of Harris Hill

Location: London

Salary: £36,000

Job Details

Harris Hill is excited to be partnering with the National Literacy Trust in its search for a new Campaigns Manager to lead on its behaviour change campaigns with local communities across the UK.

Based in London but working nationally, the NLT’s Campaigns Manager will be responsible for planning and delivering behaviour change campaigns in their national Hubs and other target areas. This includes innovative campaign strategies to spread impactful key messages among communities and affect behaviours among target demographics.

Partnership working is a key element of the National Literacy Trust’s success, and the Campaign Manager will be expected to build relationships with partners including the media, local businesses, schools, libraries, sporting clubs and more, as well as organising community engagement events and initiatives involving local children and families.

In relation to the inherent variety of Campaigns Manager positions, this particular role has a core mix of project management, behaviour change, community engagement and communications/marketing, along with broader partnership working. As such, the postholder will need to demonstrate significant experience of these aspects, as well as, ideally, knowledge of local or regional campaigning. The Campaigns Manager will be expected to line manage a Campaigns Officer; although line management experience is not essential, you’ll need to demonstrate capability to take on this responsibility (perhaps you have managed an intern, for example).

Our research and analysis make us the leading authority on literacy. We run projects in the poorest communities, campaign to make literacy a priority for politicians, businesses and parents, and support schools.
