Job Details

Are you passionate about charity shops and looking to develop a career in communications? If so, this role could be just what you are looking for.

We are the membership body for charity retailers in the UK and our members run over 9,000 charity shops. As Communications Officer, you will be working closely with our small team to get our message out to the public via social media, radio, television, online news websites and print media. We will support you in developing new skills and in developing your expertise across all areas of communications.

We are looking for candidates who can produce engaging written content, are skilled at using social media and are great at working with people. Existing communications experience, on a paid or voluntary basis, would be a distinct advantage.

The role will include:

  • Delivering our press and PR activity including writing and issuing press releases and building relationships with journalists
  • Developing and publishing creative social media content and growing engagement
  • Project managing our annual Charity Retail Awards
  • Support for marketing activity

This role is home based with attendance at in-person meetings a few times each month. We particularly encourage applications from people from an ethnic minority background, as these groups are underrepresented in our sector and we are working to address this.

Interview/Start Dates

Interviews will take place in London on Friday 27th May.
