Marketing and Communications Manager

This is a full time role - 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday

Salary: £30,000 per annum

Due to our rural location, a current Driving Licence and access to transport is essential.

Are you a confident communicator, with sensitivity and a strong sense of social justice? Are you persuasive, comfortable with CRM, a wizard with websites, with an eye for detail as well as the big picture?

We’re looking to appoint our first Marketing and Communications Manager, to help us build our brand, raise our profile and keep informed those who can influence our future.

We’re a respected Quaker charity, a residential children’s home, an independent Special School and a Therapeutic Community, rurally based a few miles from Cambridge. Our residential programme transforms the life chances of young men with a history of sexually harmful and challenging behaviour.

The work we do is heavily regulated and not for the faint-hearted, but all here will tell you that little can match the satisfaction of seeing our young men graduate to live rewarding and fulfilling lives.

For more than 50 years, we’ve relied on our reputation and word of mouth to get us by, but now it’s time to develop our offer and help change more troubled young lives.

If you think you have the skills we need, the tact and resilience to work in an emotive, and at times difficult sector, and most of all want to play your part in making a difference, we’d love to hear from you.

Please send your CV, together with 200 words explaining why you think we should meet, to Jeanette Hurworth, Chief Operating Officer (Business), jeanette.hurworth@glebehouse.org.uk by 1 March 2021.
