Job Description

One to One Recruitment is working with Family Fund to recruit a full time, permanent Marketing & Communications Assistant to join their team in York.

Are you interested in a fantastic opportunity to kick-start your charity marketing and communications career and make a real difference to children’s lives across the UK?

Who is Family Fund

Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people – providing over 88,000 grants and services worth over £33 million last year.

What you will be doing

This role will widen and build on their network of contacts amongst care professionals, organisations and support groups in order to raise awareness about their grants as well as the support and services available. Working in a busy, creative and innovative team, you will be expected to get involved in a large marketing and communications programme that supports families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people across the UK.

You will contribute to social media activity, write content for marketing material and liaise and establish relationships with a range of stakeholders across different organisations and public services, along with general administrative duties. Whilst based at the York office, you will represent Family Fund at events across the UK.

What we want

We are looking for a motivated, confident, self-starter with a passion for marketing and communication, research and writing. With strong digital skills, you will be a social media user, who ideally has some experience of running accounts for others. An understanding of the current situation in the UK for those raising disabled children, including how the public, private and third sectors contribute to the care and support available, would be an advantage.

How to apply

If this describes you and your career aspirations, please apply with your CV and also submit a persuasive covering letter to One to One Recruitment.
