Job Description - EXPIRED

Bowel and Cancer Research has a vision; that no one should die of bowel cancer, live with chronic bowel disease or face life with a permanent stoma. We fund research around the UK into bowel cancer and other bowel problems.

Bowel & Cancer Research is a growing national charity, By joining our team you will be able to see how a national charity works as a whole and have the opportunity to gain experience for your CV across a variety of fundraising and communications areas. This means that the work will be diverse and often fast-paced. There will also be opportunities for your own creative ideas.

The role will include three main projects:

- Re-designing and editing the events section of the website.
- Assisting in the promotion and design of the Big Bum-ble event on the website, on social media and via email. The Big Bum-ble is a charity event, which during April, promotes exercise (walking) for reducing the risk of bowel cancer and through which we'd like to raise funds.
- Setting up a YouTube channel for the charity and/or photo site such as Flickr or Pinterest

Alongside the three projects above there will be continuing smaller amounts of work needed for the following at busy times:

- Logistical support on key running and cycling event days such as the London Marathon.
- Producing written communications to all the charity's supporters as required including letters and thank you cards.
- Updating social media
- Updating our supporter database
- Filing and other office admin as required

Skills and attitude required:

- Design skills. Knowledge of Photoshop or similar along with basic web design.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Sound knowledge of social sites, and their USPs.
- Solid practical working knowledge of IT software packages, including word and excel.
- A desire to contribute, to overcome challenges and to get things done.

Things to note:
- A DBS check will be required of all applicants since our head office also deals directly and indirectly with patients.
- The London Marathon takes place on the 26th of April and we will need an intern who could help on the day if at all possible.
- A Reference will be provided at the end of a successful internship.

To apply: Please send as attachments, a CV of no more than 2 sides along with a one-sided covering letter to Amy Noss.

We will continue to accept CVs until we have found a suitable candidate.
