Communications Manager

Location: Twickenham

Salary expectation: £35,000

Application deadline: Tue 1st February

This is a full-time role

Imagine going home tonight not to your flat, with the TV on and the dog waiting but to a park bench or shop doorway. No hot dinner, no warm bed, in fact no bed.  Unimaginable? Sadly not for the hundreds of people we work with every year. Do you think you could make a difference to their lives? Could you tell their story across a range of media to get others to notice them and do something to change their future? If you do then read on ……….

We have been transforming lives of those experiencing homelessness across SW London for over 30 years.  We have big ambition and our clients are at the heart of everything we do.

SPEAR is dynamic and unique – much like those who work with us. Their expertise and commitment has enabled SPEAR to thrive, despite all the challenges of the last couple of years.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT SORT OF PERSON TO MAKE THAT DIFFERENCE?

Bringing alive the stories of our clients is challenging but when we do it right it unlocks so much – financial support, people coming forward to give their time and importantly, more people become aware of the problem that exists all around us and that makes them committed to make change happen.

We’re looking for an outstanding communications professional to lead and develop all communications – you will have strong experience of developing multi-channel communications plans and taking a communications campaign forward through different digital and offline channels. Proficient across IT systems and platforms you will also have commissioned and designed creative publications and branded materials and actively led on web, branding and social media.

But we know communications needs buy in, so we need you to take a collaborative to ensure full support and active participation across the organisation allowing you also to act as our brand champion. Your strong copy writing & editorial skills and attention to detail will help us maximise our opportunities and reach.

We need you to have creative flair and thrive in a fast paced environment and we especially need you to be passionate and committed to making a real difference to people experiencing homelessness.

IS THIS THE RIGHT TIME FOR YOU TO JOIN US?

This is a time of change at SPEAR when we are actively looking to do things differently. The Fundraising & Communications team will soon have a new leader and as an organisation we are looking to expand our provision and reach more people. This role will sit right at the heart of that change.
