Job Title: Campaigns and Communications Officer
Working For: Centre for Ageing Better
Salary: Circa £32,178
The Centre for Ageing Better has a unique opportunity for an experienced Communications professional to join our team as a Campaigns and Communications Officer. If you are a hands-on individual with experience of planning and delivering awareness and advocacy campaigns and helping to influence change in public policy, we want to hear from you.
The UK’s population is undergoing a massive age shift. In less than 20 years, one in four people will be over 65. The fact that many of us are living longer is a great achievement. But unless radical action is taken by government, business and others in society, millions of us risk missing out on enjoying those extra years.
At the Centre for Ageing Better we want everyone to enjoy later life. We create change in policy and practice informed by evidence and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities. We are a charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, and part of the government’s What Works Network.
As Campaigns and Communications Officer you will develop and deliver ambitious integrated campaigns that influence policy and practice around Ageing Better’s key issues using our wide range of communications channels and contacts including digital, events and engagement with the media and policymakers. The successful candidate will have an excellent understanding of the UK public policy process, including the political and parliamentary system and how to influence it to bring about change.
Working as part of a busy communications team, you will also provide planning and project management support for our overall communications work. With hands-on experience of delivering across a range of communications disciplines, you will have fast writing skills and the ability to absorb long and complex policy issues and turn them into compelling and clear content. An interest in Ageing Better’s agenda is essential.
Closing Date: 25 May 2020
The closing time for this role is 5pm with interviews to be held w/c 8 June 2020.
