Fake news, Brexit, Donald Trump. When it comes to communication currently people seem to prefer shouting to talking. With all of this endless yelling, how is anyone going to hear the voices of young people with cancer and their families? That's where you come in.

About the role:
You'll join media masters and creative comms legends in a skilled and passionate team of storytellers. Your job will be to provide communications support for the charity's biggest corporate partnership, motivating thousands of staff on both sides in stores and offices across the UK to keep smashing fundraising targets and fighting for young lives against cancer.
We don't mind which sector you're from we just want you to have bags of experience delivering brilliant internal and external communications that have achieved real results. In this job you need to be a people person, as comfortable building great relationships with families or young people as with journalists, staff at every level of the partnership from the boardroom to the shop floor and colleagues across the charity.
Your creative communication plans and engagement activities need to turn the heads of people up and down the country and boost the profile of the charity and the partnership. A love of good internal comms is important, as you will also work on a range of projects across the charity, helping everyone from our social workers to our CEO to share news and talk about the amazing work CLIC Sargent does. You will need to work hard, take pride in what you do, show a positive attitude and be a great ambassador for our brand. Most important of all is a passion for our fight for young lives against cancer.
We're always looking for talented people from all backgrounds, to join us and help improve the lives of children and young people with cancer and their families. We particularly want to encourage people from under-represented groups to step forward and apply to work or volunteer with CLIC Sargent. CLIC Sargent is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
