Job Title: Communications Coordinator

Working For: The Cares Family

Location: London

Salary: £28,000 - £35,000 per year

Length of Contract: 12 month contract

Job Details

We are looking for someone with first-rate communications skills and the ability to produce impactful stories and other communications materials, who has a passion for social change, enjoys working collaboratively (and is happy to work alone) and in busy environments.

As The Cares Family’s Communications Coordinator, you will work closely with our Head of Communications, Head of Campaigns and Policy and with our wider staff team to bolster engagement in our work, to improve our social media and blast emails, to build awareness and understanding of our mission and programmatic work and to promote our campaigning activity and policy advocacy.

This is an exciting time to join our friendly, high performing and ambitious team. The communications function is a relatively new one at The Cares Family, but over the last 18 months we have set up new processes and initiatives to surface the voices of people in our communities in new ways (including through a Community Champions initiative) so that more people know about the power of relationships across the generations and other perceived differences. In 2022, a key focus for communications is raising the profile of The Cares Family and driving sustainability across the charity.

In 2021, The Cares Family published our first policy report, Building our Social Infrastructure, and our profile as a thought leadership organisation is growing. We are at the heart of We’re Right Here – a national campaign aimed at driving power downwards and outwards to communities – and our plans for 2022 include supporting groups of older and younger neighbours to identify and launch campaigns on local issues of common concern. We have also recently launched a new podcast, Building Belonging, in collaboration with Onward. To deliver these plans, we need the support of an excellent communicator and storyteller, who can craft compelling narratives and copy, knows how to use social media to drive action and can juggle competing priorities.
