Communications Lead

Service: Warwickshire School Health & Wellbeing Service

Location: Warwickshire

Salary: £24,389 (p.a.)

Type: Full time (37 hours)

The Mission

We believe health messages are integral to education. That young people, their families and peers deserve to learn how to be happy and healthy. That’s where SHWBS comes in. Our pioneering service has the resources and backing to help young people across the county. We want them and everyone around them to know it’s open to them. That’s where you come in…

The Role

We’re looking for a marketer that grasps the value of having a comprehensive plan, able to deliver both proactive and reactive campaigns that potently reflect our mission.

Able to work across a wide set of marketing channels, especially digital, you’ll be well versed in delivering your message with impact. It’ll take more than just a talent for taglines though. It’s a team effort and working with partners across the NHS, county councils and schools will form a major part of the role.

It’s going to demand a combination of creativity, editorial skill, digital marketing know-how, organisation and stakeholder management. We’re looking for a sense of affinity with our organisation, high standards and vision. There’ll be plenty to keep you challenged.

You will be expected to work flexibly across our hubs in Caldecote, Stratford and Rugby and therefore a full UK driving licence and access to own transport is essential.

The benefits

In return, we offer a range of benefits including:

  • Generous annual leave
  • Employee Assistance Programme and OH Service
  • Eye tests for VDU users
  • Excellent learning & development opportunities and career progression
  • Generous contributory Pension Scheme
