Communications Manager

Location: There will be a hybrid of remote/home and office-based working from a central London workspace of 1-2 days per week, subject to Covid regulations. There may be occasional work outside regular office hours at charity events (with time off in return).

We’re looking for a creative and versatile communications colossus to help develop, drive and deliver impactful campaigns and projects. 

This is a key role within the Communications Team, supporting our strategy for growth across all channels by creating powerful and engaging content to compel the audience into action. 

You will work closely with colleagues across the charity to support both communications, awareness, and fundraising campaigns to reach further, build trust and belief in our supporters and grow our brand to being the go-to ovarian cancer charity for anyone committed to our cause. 

We want someone who can…

  • see the big picture and love it when a plan comes together, combined with a tenacious appetite for new ways to develop and deliver content that melts the hearts and minds of our supporters,
  • create clever communications that empowers people at an increased risk with the knowledge to make a life changing decision,
  • bang together snappy content that bounds into people’s social feeds, inboxes and daily lives that grabs their attention and refuses to be ignored, 
  • build bold campaigns that inspires and motivates someone to do something amazing for Ovarian Cancer Action. 
The role will be an exciting mix of marketing and comms, start to finish project management, and engagement with supporters, partners, media, and ambassadors (as well as the odd cup of tea, piece of cake, sharing pictures on Pets Corner and post-work drinks to celebrate birthdays and great days). 

Our Communications Team is small but mighty, driven by the challenge our strategy brings, and powered by inspirational people and stories that demand action and constantly remind us of one thing - women with ovarian cancer don’t just deserve better; they deserve the best.
