Are you a creative person who is passionate about helping charities expand their reach?
Are you interested in how we can make it easier for people to live healthy lives?
C3 Collaborating for Health (C3) is seeking an enthusiastic person to transform our online presence and to take us to the next level as a charity.
C3 brings together different communities to create changes that make it easier for people to: stop using tobacco, improve what they eat and drink, and do more physical activity. Together these behaviours can stop the epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) that are the leading cause of death globally. The COVID-19 pandemic has further illustrated that those suffering from NCDs are at increased risk of severe illness and death. As the world rethinks our approach to life and tries to address the pandemic and climate change, we at C3 know that making it easier for people to live healthy lives is central to these crises.
The Campaign Manager role will provide an excellent opportunity to be very hands on, working to amplify the reach of our small but impactful charity. We work both at a high level – in partnership across a range of sectors including NGOs, research organisations and the private sector – and also at a local level, in communities. C3 is well known for the high standard of its events, research and project management – so enthusiasm, flexibility and a keen eye for detail are all prerequisites!
The work at C3 is constantly developing but the role will include:
- Developing C3’s external communications for project ASPIRE – an EU funded three-year project
- Developing and executing a communication plan, by utilising appropriate traditional and social media, to reach stakeholders and elevate our project to a wider audience.
- Writing fresh, engaging copy that connects with C3’s diverse audiences.
- Working with C3 team to rapidly create, curate and re-purpose content in a variety of formats including but not limited to: blog posts; social media posts and graphics (primarily LinkedIn and Twitter); e-newsletters (MailChimp); reports; infographics; videos; podcasts.
- Developing innovative and engaging digital assets and campaigns, along with transforming our website.
- Optimising the value from C3’s contact database (Salesforce CRM).
- Building up C3’s contacts with online and mainstream media and journalists.
- Evaluating the relative value of different channels to inform future communication planning.
- With C3 colleagues, representing C3 at events nationally and internationally.
- Promoting C3 events to encourage attendance and also during the events to publicise.
What we’re looking for from you
- Thorough understanding and experience with campaigns and communications work – demonstrating a clear, concise writing style for different audiences across a range of mediums (examples of work will be requested).
- Making connections between people, ideas and opportunities personally and virtually.
- Excellent eye for detail in written material.
- Interest in healthy lifestyles.
- Good organisational abilities – particularly working on several projects at the same time either independently or as part of the C3 team.
- Creativity and desire to use your writing for good.
- Excellent knowledge of the relevant platforms and software tools to create and disseminate content.
What we can offer you
- Opportunities to network at the highest level in an interesting and well-connected charity.
- Working to make a difference to some of the most pressing health issues of the world today.
- Flexible working arrangements (with a minimum of 2 days/week will need to be spent in the office on the campus of the Royal College of Physicians in Regent’s Park, as COVID-19 allows).
- C3 is a team of friendly and enthusiastic colleagues who come from various countries and ethnic heritage and we will welcome even more diversity.
