Role Purpose:

This role would suit a comms professional with junior experience of a busy communications role, who is ready to face the challenge of a more global and even more fast-paced job. You should have strong project management skills, love working with spreadsheets and organising things, but also have a creative mind and love writing and creating simple assets. There is a great opportunity to learn and develop on the job, working with a brilliant team of creative experts.

As a global movement Save the Children has exceptionally ambitious advocacy, supporter growth, fundraising and programme delivery targets designed to maximise the positive impact that we can have for children across the world.

Powerful and engaging content is critical to achieving this ambition, whether across fundraising targets, when lobbying for political change, or raising brand and media profile. We are looking to transform the way we tell stories, creating memorable interactions with supports through high quality, emotional, authentic global creative content.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile, to help deliver content in partnership with the Global Media Unit and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
