Director of Communications & Marketing
We are the leading independent children's charity in the UK, specialising in child protection and dedicated to the fight for every childhood. Child abuse is preventable - not inevitable. It is up to each of us to do everything possible to keep childhood safe from abuse or neglect, so children can grow up healthy and thrive. Abuse robs children of their childhood. Without help, the scars can last a lifetime. And as devastating as it can be for the child, society pays a heavy price too. We work to prevent abuse and neglect. We transform society. We are now looking for an outstanding Director of Communications & Marketing who can continue to develop our integrated marketing and communications strategy to ensure we fulfil our charitable objectives and deliver on our belief that every childhood is worth fighting for.
Child protection has never been so high on the news agenda and the NSPCC is central to the debates taking place about the importance of prevention, early intervention, system change and holistic approaches to support children, young people and families. The role and purpose of the Communications & Marketing function is to meet this challenge through demonstrating impact across its full range of integrated disciplines: a world class brand presence off and online, the highest standards of creativity in materials, clear messaging around what we do for children, and an honesty and commitment to reacting the issues facing children, young people, families and professionals in the UK today.
A strategic leader, you will have led a busy and ideally high-profile Marketing and Communications function within a demanding environment. You will bring a demonstrable track record of influencing public opinion, decision-makers, donors and supporters to endorse or respond to campaigns, policy calls and fundraising asks, while also showing your capacity to contribute to the initiation, development and delivery of an overall corporate strategy. This will have been achieved through negotiation, motivation, diplomacy and collaboration. Motivated by values and vision, you will be a proven ambitious, entrepreneurial and high performing leader who will ensure NSPCC speaks with authority, authenticity and impact.
It is without a doubt an exciting time to join the NSPCC. As the external context continues to shift rapidly, our work has become increasingly challenging and important. It is vital that we also adapt and evolve in order to remain relevant.
