This is a full-time role

Trust for London is an independent charitable foundation that aims to tackle poverty and inequality in London. We do this by funding voluntary and charity groups, currently make grants totalling around £10 million a year. We also fund independent research and provide knowledge and expertise on London’s social issues to policymakers and journalists.

The Trust is recruiting a new Head of Communications to help raise the profile of poverty and inequality in the city and show what can be done to tackle it. This is a unique opportunity for someone with ambition and commitment to shape our approach to external communications and make a real difference to the lives of low-income Londoners.

The role has responsibility for both our digital communications and our media relations. This includes managing our website and social channels, as well as contact with journalists, newspapers, radio and television. The role will be responsible for the proactive identification of opportunities for further coverage related to poverty and inequality in London, ensuring that the organisations the Trust supports are placed front and centre.

What we are looking for

You are likely to be someone who has a track record of developing relevant and powerful communications strategies or campaigns, working with both digital and traditional media.

You could already be leading a communications function, or looking to make the step up into a leadership role. What is important is that you have a strong commitment to social justice and the ability to drive our external communications forward.
