Marketing & PR Manager

Location: York OR London

Salary expectation: £31,671

Application deadline: Mon 18th February

This is a full-time role

About the role:

We have a fantastic opportunity for a savvy and strategic Marketing and PR Manager to join us in our ambition to win hearts and minds to solve poverty in the UK.

Millions of people are locked in poverty in the UK; we don’t believe that’s right. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to solve it. JRF’s new strategy is to work alongside others to build public and political will for change and demand for solutions. This is a great time to join us and help make this happen.

We need to be smart and effective in our communications with stakeholders. We will be engaging with the public and other audiences in a way we have never done before, so we are after an imaginative marketeer with creative PR skills to ensure we are communicating to the right people in the right way.

Using the best stakeholder insight, this role will be responsible for implementing and delivering an integrated digital-first marketing strategy for JRF across a range of platforms, as well as providing strategic advice on marketing our products and services to key stakeholders. The successful candidate will drive the organisation’s approach to analytics and automation, whilst supporting our digital transformation and brand work, and managing the communication of JRF’s corporate change programme.

About you:

We are looking for someone with huge enthusiasm for what we do, who can engage in our mission and purpose. With a good understanding of the context that we’re working in, you will be experienced in using data and insight to design successful marketing and PR strategies.

You will be familiar with managing high-profile national marketing and PR campaigns aimed at public, business and policy audiences. You will be able to demonstrate excellent creative writing and project management skills.

Good leadership skills are important, as is having exceptional communication skills and the ability to network and build relationships. Above all, you will be determined to change public thinking and attitudes on poverty in the UK.

About us:

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is a social change organisation with a 100-year history. We are built on trust, show we care, and exist to make a difference.

We work with others to put forward sector-leading research, evidence, solutions and stories to the UK’s influencers and decision-makers.

We believe that a prosperous poverty-free UK is within reach – we just need more people to believe it too.

To make our vision a reality we need talent, ideas, skills and passion, plus we need to change some of what we do and how we do it. So, we’re embarking on a significant period of change – change that will see us become an outcomes-focused organisation that embraces new ways of working and modern practices.

If you share our passion, then we need to hear from you.

In support of our approach to flexible working we are happy to receive applications from those seeking full time employment, as well as those who may want to share the role on a part time basis.

When making your application, please state whether you want to be considered for either full or part time work and, if part time, the number of hours per week you would be looking for.

Our commitment to diversity:

We are committed to creating opportunities for under-represented groups. Black Asian minority ethnic groups and those with a declared disability are under-represented in the organisation and are positively encouraged to apply. We shall apply Section 159 of the Equalities Act 2010 in the recruitment process.

At JRF/JRHT we are inclusive and are committed to giving everyone an equal chance to succeed.
