Marketing and Communications Executive


Job Description

We are looking for a Marketing and Communications Executive to join our established and busy member services and communications team. We’re currently working from home, but we’re usually based in central London and support flexible working.

If you have a creative flair, a passion for writing, and an understanding of tech solutions for effective communications and marketing automation, then this is the perfect job for you. You will be our lead liaison with our policy and research teams, and will be charged with bringing their work, and their stories, to life. You’ll use your skills to demonstrate to members and stakeholders how the College is influencing policy makers across the UK, and building the evidence base for the profession.

You will lead on the development of our key publications, from our successful patient information series, through to our annual report. You will also be responsible for marketing our extensive calendar of online and face-to-face events to members. You will develop and deliver an annual event marketing plan designed to ensure we meet our KPIs, to target key audiences, engage underrepresented member groups, and identify new markets.

This is a varied role, and will give you exposure to the full marketing mix. You’ll be a master of expertly crafted email campaigns to engage and inspire, a team player, resilient, and ready to adapt and think on your feet to overcome the obstacles which come with working in a healthcare environment during a pandemic! It’s a fast-paced, fun team who are driven to succeed. In turn, you’ll benefit from the opportunities provided by a soon to be launched CRM and website, and new approaches to monitoring and evaluation. 

We offer a generous benefits package, and the opportunity to develop and learn within a professional organisation. We will give you the space and support needed for you to develop your skills and to put your own ideas into action. We are eager to try new things, embrace new technology, and we offer a friendly environment which nurtures initiative and talent.
