We require an experienced Marketing & Communications Manager to help take KAB to the next level and achieve our ambitious goals. As Marketing & Communications Manager you will be leading the communications for the Charity. You will be part of a fantastic team, working closely with the Senior Management Team (SMT) and reporting to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This role will be responsible for raising the profile of the Charity and promoting our work to supporters, volunteers, funders, partners and the wider public. This is a varied and demanding role encompassing the full marketing and communications mix, including press and PR, digital, campaigns, fundraising and service communications and internal communications.
We are looking for an experienced, confident and results-driven all-rounder who possesses exceptional writing skills and a track record in PR and creative marketing. The individual will be an excellent project manager, able to develop and implement both external and internal communications projects. A self-starter who is strategically minded and able to take the lead as necessary, they will be comfortable collaborating with staff and stakeholders at all levels. Above all, they will have the skills and passion to engage people in our mission and bring our work to life with flair and creativity.
KAB is in an exciting place right now having recently finalised an ambitious Fundraising Strategy which drives growth potential around all fundraising streams.
In addition we are reviewing our services to ensure that we are aligned to the Charity’s objectives and maximising opportunities to achieve our goals. With this in mind, we are making marketing and communications a priority for the organisation and we are therefore seeking a dynamic, passionate and independent manager to develop and implement the right strategy to achieve our ambitious targets.
