The role


At the Canal & River Trust, we believe life’s better by water, and that the waterways we take care of have an important contribution to make to the health and well-being of local communities and economies. Join us, in this wide-ranging role, and you will play a key part in helping us achieve our ambition of becoming a recognised leader in the restoration field.


How will you do it?


By creating targeted communications materials that promote the restoration achievements of the Trust. By contributing to regional restoration strategies. And by working closely with internal and external stakeholders to build support for the restoration movement. You will also partner with organisations such as the Inland Waterways Association to create supporting guidance for restoration societies and organise knowledge-sharing events.


What you need


This role calls for an excellent communicator who can combine real social media savvy with proven experience of creating external and internal communications materials on a national scale. You’re going to need to build relationships with a wide range of people, so you must have a proven track record of working closely with various partners and small volunteer groups. You also need experience of community engagement, strategic project planning and of organising conferences or similar events. A UK driving licence is essential, as frequent travel will be involved. Interviews will be taking place in Birmingham on 19th December, so applicants should ensure they are available to attend.


The impact you’ll have

The waterways our charity looks after contribute to the health and wellbeing of local communities and economies, creating attractive and connected places to live, work, volunteer and spend leisure time. These historic, natural and cultural assets form part of the strategic and local green-blue infrastructure network, linking urban and rural communities as well as habitats. Our waterways are on the doorstep of 8 million people and reach some of the most deprived communities within the UK. By caring for our waterways and promoting their use we believe we can improve the wellbeing of our nation. Come and be part of it.


Our diversity


We aim to represent the diverse communities we are part of and welcome applicants from across all sectors of the community. We strongly believe that a diverse workforce brings with it a diversity of ideas, thinking and ways of working which enhances what we do.
