Variety, the Children’s Charity provides direct help to children and young people up to their 19th birthday who are living with illness, disability or financial disadvantage. The charity steps in where statutory healthcare, support and funding ends to ensure that children have the support they need to reach their potential and thrive, regardless of their health, mobility, abilities and economic background.
We may be celebrating our 70th anniversary this year but we still have ambitions for growth and hope you choose to help us get there. We have already commenced our journey:
Our new Chief Executive joined in August 2018.
Our new Director of Fundraising, Marketing & Communications joins at the end of April.
We have new and re-imagined roles to recruit to in addition to this one, including a Head of Marketing and Communications, Corporate Partnerships Manager, and a Trust and Foundations Fundraiser.
The Digital Manager is a new role and you will be responsible for managing and delivering the Charity’s online communications, developing digital and social media strategy, and for ensuring that all the digital communications are innovative, timely, effective, on-brand, and to budget. As a proactive role you will have a focus on actively identifying and maximising opportunities to communicate through digital channels.
We are looking for an experienced professional with a track record in developing and delivering a digital strategy, ideally within the charity sector, and who can demonstrate an understanding of what makes an effective digital and social media presence.
This is a key role which will have you working with staff and volunteers across the charity to maximise our digital engagement and therefore reach, to both supporters and potential beneficiaries.
