COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER - (Fixed term contract up to 29 May 2015)
Rennie Grove Hospice Care is a charity supporting local families to cope with life-threatening illness. Our mission is to offer excellent palliative and end-of-life care based around patients and their families both day and night.
Raising awareness of the charity helps to generate income to sustain our service as well as ensuring that all members of the community who require our services know how to access them. Increased awareness of Rennie Grove as a whole assists the recruitment of nurses and other key staff who help the organisation achieve the organisation’s strategy. As an excellent communicator, your focus will be on press and publications (including local papers, national and trade press opportunities, supporter newsletter, annual review and service leaflets) but you’ll also be familiar with general marketing principles, confident in using social media and other digital platforms, and comfortable with using all communications channels. With your excellent presentation and organisational skills, combined with the ability to work using your own initiative, you’ll work effectively as part of a small, flexible team.
The ability to write good copy is crucial, as is the willingness to undertake in-house training on specific software and web-based platforms. A strong belief in the hospice cause and a firm grasp of communication principles combined with a solid commercial approach will be valuable attributes. You’ll also appreciate the general principles regarding the relationship of hospices with their supporters, many of whom may have experienced bereavement.
Benefits include 25 days’ holiday plus Bank Holidays per annum (pro rata) and pension.
