To lead on the organisation’s media campaigns, brand, communications (both external and internal), marketing, social media and digital engagement, ensuring the RFC is an exemplar for NHS charities in terms of public and member engagement. Develop and implement a communications and messaging strategy that ensures significant growth in the awareness, engagement and participation in our work from people across north London and beyond, wherever the trust offers services.
