We have big goals over the next few years.

We’re going to be fighting for mental health in a way we never have before.

Together we’ll be working to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.

Will you join us?

We’re looking for an exceptional Communications and Marketing Officer to come and join our team to help develop, deliver and evaluate our marketing campaigns to support our flagship Blue Light programme.

The programme is providing tailored support for the mental health of emergency services personnel following the outbreak of coronavirus. Reporting to the Senior Marketing Officer, you will work take responsibility for the day-to-day delivery of marketing and communications for the Blue Light programme, contributing to how we reach the target audience using a range of on and offline marketing techniques and developing content to work across marketing channels.

You will work closely with colleagues across Mind and external funders and partners to promote Mind’s brand, raise awareness and raise funds. You will take the initiative to support our wider team and organisational objectives, spotting opportunities and contributing to our continual improvement. The Communications and Marketing unit sits within Mind’s External Relations department alongside digital, campaigning, policy, information, legal and media.

You will work closely with colleagues across all other departments: Fundraising, Infrastructure, Retail, Wales and Networks and Communities, building relationships with local Minds where appropriate.

Candidates will have proven experience within a communications and marketing role, delivering a range of communication materials to engage different audiences, whilst having sound understanding of branding principles. With experience of using common IT packages, you will have excellent interpersonal skills and will ideally have experience of Managing social media accounts and reporting on marketing metrics.

Neither a degree, nor prior experience in the charity sector are required – much more important is a proactive, can-do, problem-solving attitude.
