Communications Manager (Brexit), IMiX

Location: London

Salary expectation: £34,000

Application deadline: Sun 1st July

This is a full-time role
Global Dialogue is seeking a Communications Manager

Immigration is one of the key debates within UK politics and the media and is regularly cited as a top three issue by the public. IMiX is working to ensure that debate includes voices from migrants and those who support them.

IMiX was created to support the refugee and migration sector to shift public attitudes on migration and create an open and welcoming Britain for people who make the UK their home.

Post-Brexit, EU citizens will have to register for settled status if they want to stay in the UK.  We want to make sure that no one misses out on settled status and that the wider public hear the experiences and views of those whose immigration status in Britain is changing because of Brexit. To do this we need an experienced communications manager to work across the migration space to find case studies, train spokespeople, craft messages /campaign material and talk to journalists to ensure EU nationals know the change is coming, and that their views and experiences of settled status are heard.

We’re looking for someone who really understands the importance of collaboration, is a natural communicator, and who understands how to use a variety of channels to reach a target audience. If you appreciate audience insight, the importance of value-based messaging and why story telling matters when encouraging people to act we’d love to hear from you.

Our team is small, but effective; we like to take risks and try new things but also appreciate some of the old school approaches to securing change.

IMiX is housed at Global Dialogue, a registered charity (1122052) promoting human rights and social change through innovative and collaborative philanthropy.
