I am working with a leading UK Health Charity based in Reading, who are looking to recruit a Head of Communications on a permanent basis to join their hard-working, friendly and inclusive team.

Reporting in to the Director of Fundraising & Communications, this role will play a significant part in developing a creative Communications strategy and lead the Communications team to effectively deliver their strategy as well as raising the profile of the organisation amongst their identified target audience.


Key duties:

  • Manage the production of communication to beneficiaries and supporters and communications produced to market fundraising events
  • Develop strategies to ensure that the charity is the go-to charity for their target audience/community
  • Determine strategies to raise awareness and bring attention to the charity
  • Deliver the digital marketing strategy
  • Ensure all communications reflect the branding, and that the use of branding is consistent, has impact and engages the target audiences
  • Steer the communications function, leading, developing and managing the team


This really is a fantastic opportunity for a candidate who is going to not only work with the Director of Fundraising & Communications, but will also challenge and pro-actively suggest new and creative approaches to take this amazing charity into a new direction.
