They will be working closely with other team members, especially the Communications Officer and Senior Development Officer, whilst being line-managed by the Deputy CEO. They will, with ongoing support and training, be expected to help with the creation of engaging digital communications, and the delivery of networks, training, and events. The post holder will also be involved with the delivery of operational projects, such as inputting information into our new database and helping to update related processes for the team.

We are looking for someone who shares our enthusiasm for charities and community groups and the work they do, and is conscientious, passionate, positive, and ready to learn.
