Children Today

This is a great chance to join a small but incredibly dynamic and dedicated team helping children and young people across the UK.

Children Today is a charity that raises funds to provide specialised equipment and services to help children and young people under 25 with disabilities throughout the UK to enjoy a better quality of life

Often children and young people with disabilities remain excluded from a lifestyle which other people may take for granted. They want to join in and take part in the same sorts of activities, within their capabilities, as other children. They want to gain more independence from their parents as they get older, but are often prevented from doing so.

We believe the provision of specialised equipment has a direct and immediate impact on a child’s quality of life and independence and is vital in helping them to overcome obstacles and achieve their potential. Equipment can include wheelchairs, walking frames, tricycles and other mobility aids, as well as, multi-sensory equipment and other information technology.

We now have an exciting opportunity for a Marketing and Communications to join our small dedicated team working to change the lives of children and young people.

Job Purpose:

To develop and implement tailored marketing campaigns at local and national levels to support achievement of Children Today’s strategic objectives with a particular focus on the use of social media to increase national awareness of the charity’s work.

  • Develop and implement an integrated communications strategy incorporating PR, marketing and online content
  • Manage the Children Today website and all online marketing communications
  • Plan and implement marketing campaigns to users, stakeholders, sponsors and opinion formers to support local and national awareness campaigns and fundraising initiatives.
