Job Details

Acumen Academy UK is looking for a Marketing and Communications Officer to help amplify our Fellows and online social-change courses in the United Kingdom. We are looking for a savvy self-starter who has experience designing and delivering impactful communications.

Acumen Academy UK has recently launched the Acumen Fellowship, focused on connecting bold leaders tackling injustice in their communities - and equipping them with the knowledge, skills and community to accelerate and sustain their impact. In this role, you will work closely with Acumen Academy UK’s Programme Manager and Acumen Academy's global marketing team as you deliver beautiful and compelling digital communications across a range of mediums. 

Role responsibilities:

  • Develop and deliver engaging stories and content pieces profiling the Acumen Fellows in the UK - to share via newsletters, blogs, emails, social media and digital marketing campaigns
  • Help define and build our strategy for increasing the reach of Acumen Academy’s online courses in the UK – testing and templatizing what works as you learn
  • Support the communications and promotion of Acumen Academy’s online and in-person community events in the UK - for potential Fellows, online course-takers, workshop attendees
  • Build and manage partnerships with media outlets, press partners and influencers
  • Work in collaboration with Acumen’s global marketing team to ensure consistent messaging and visual branding

Does this sound like you?

  • You are a great writer who takes pride in creating content that tells an engaging story
  • You have a strong track record of building relationships with internal teams and external partners e.g. media outlets, corporates, influencers
  • You are always using data to learn, and people often tell you that you have a strong eye for detail
  • You are a self-starter who thrives when there is ambiguity and remains cool-headed when there are curveballs
  • You are committed to changing the way the UK tackles poverty, and live by our values: generosity & accountability, humility & audacity, listening & leadership, integrity & respect
