The New Economics Foundation is recruiting a talented individual to lead our digital communications.

The Foundation aims to be the most exciting progressive think and action tank in the United Kingdom. Our goal is to build the case for far-reaching economic change and to partner with other organisations seeking to build that change here and now. We believe in an economy that is truly just and sustainable. One that takes power out of the hands of unaccountable elites and enables individuals and their communities democratically to shape their own future.

We have a proud thirty-year history but we have recently set out in a new direction. We launched a new ‘agenda for change’ in October 2016, and at the same time rebranded ourselves and relaunched our website.

As our digital lead in the organisation, you will be responsible for maintaining and driving forward our online presence across website, social media, emails and publications. Reporting to the Director of News and Media, you will be NEF’s leader – both internally and externally –  for all aspects of digital communications, as well as playing an integral role in the wider functions of a four-person communications team.

We are looking for a talented communications professional who is committed to producing exciting, innovative and engaging content that has a real impact on the world. If that’s you, please apply!

Remuneration will be within the range of £32,000 – £46,000

Deadline is 9:00am on Monday 3 July 2017

Job description

Equal opportunities form

We recognise that people have commitments and responsibilities outside of work, therefore The New Economics Foundation supports flexible working. We are also open to suggestions of Job Shares.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all persons regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. But, as members of ethnic minority groups and disabled people are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups.  Appointment will be based on merit alone.

As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.
