Job Details

The Wolfson Foundation is a charity that awards grants to support excellence in the fields of  science, health, heritage, humanities and the arts, with education and research underpinning  everything that we do. We are one of the country’s largest funding charities, and since 1955,  some £1 billion has been awarded to more than 14,000 projects throughout the UK.  

We are recruiting for an important and exciting role: a Communications Manager.  

The post reports directly to the Chief Executive and will be a part of the senior management  team at the Wolfson Foundation. The position manages all communications and publicity via  various media, including the Foundation’s website, social media and press releases.  

The successful candidate will be competent and confident in using the full range of digital  communication tools. They will also have a high level of spoken and written English, the  ability to think strategically, excellent organisational and administrative skills, a high level of  attention to detail and the ability to work flexibly, managing a varied workload under pressure.  

The individual needs to be able to work effectively as part of a small team while also being  capable of undertaking independent work. Creating and maintaining high quality  relationships with a wide range of stakeholders at varying levels of seniority is critical. 

The role requires an individual who is personable, professional and confident, particularly in  public-facing situations. Enthusiasm for the activities undertaken by the Foundation is  essential as is the intellectual curiosity to work across the whole range of the Foundation’s  activities.  

The successful candidate will start in late August/early September (or as soon as possible  thereafter). The Foundation is able to offer £40,000-45,000 per annum as part of a  competitive remuneration package, including private health insurance and pension  contribution. 

Further information about the role can be found in the job description.
