The successful applicant will support the Communications Manager and play a key role in our daily communications and digital media, including social media, website, newsletters and podcasts.

This role is suited to someone who has the enthusiasm to learn and is an excellent communicator. We want someone who is highly self-motivated for a virtual team and thrives in collaboration.

We want to see a passion for the environment and sustainable food and farming, with a keenness to learn and bring new ideas to the table.

You will have excellent copywriting and written communication skills with experience in managing complex campaigns. There will be plenty of scope for learning to develop campaigns, produce creative content and build compelling communications through multiple outputs.

Our ideal candidate is eager to see change happen, solutions-orientated and capable of balancing multiple priorities and deadlines simultaneously. We want someone who can keep themselves updated on developments in communications and stay on top of the ever-changing digital and media landscape.

Key responsibilities:

  • Helping create and implement our communications strategy
