Shelter is looking for an ambitious and highly creative communications professional to join our award-winning Marketing Team as Communications Marketing Manager. It is an exciting time for Shelter, we have just launched a bold new strategy which sets out an ambitious response to ending the national housing emergency.

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. We need proactive, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this critical time and play a positive part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

About the Role In order to effectively deliver our ambitious new strategy we are re-positioning and refreshing Shelter's iconic brand. This is a great career-shaping opportunity and the right person will be able to influence and develop the brand from the start. We will count on you to play a key role in embedding the refreshed brand internally, and work with our 12 strong marketing team to deliver a high-profile national brand campaign in the spring of 2020. You will work closely with the Senior Brand Marketing Manager, Head of Marketing and many other colleagues across the country on this extremely rewarding project.

About you We are looking for candidates with impressive communications and marketing backgrounds including experience in three key areas: building and embedding a brand, developing brand guidelines and content, and delivering multi-channel marketing campaigns. To be successful in this role, you will have a great eye for design (layout; typography; appropriate use of imagery) and understand what constitutes good and effective copy.

Most importantly, you will have a friendly, outgoing demeanor, with interpersonal skills strong enough to influence stakeholders and manage relationships with external agencies. You will also have the initiative to identify problems, as well as responding to challenges that are presented along the way.

Although this is a one-year contract, there may be the opportunity for it to be extended.

Benefits We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, childcare vouchers, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
