Work for us

Our communications team is recruiting two new and exciting roles to support the growing comms operation.

1. Content Manager

As Content Manager, you will help to define a new content strategy across all channels, creating compelling content based on a wealth of stories from hundreds of Fellows’ research trips around the world and their impact across the UK. You will manage the website and social media, assisting with campaigns and media relations, commissioning podcasts and blogs on a wide range of issues, and writing articles for online and offline use. Working closely with the Communications Director, you will also play a pivotal role in relaunching the website and will be fully involved in a major rebrand exercise.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience of managing an effective content strategy across both digital and print, a good understanding of analytics, SEO, UX and UI, and experience of user engagement in social media channels. If you’re an ideas person with creative flair, with an audience-focussed approach and a passion for finding and telling compelling human stories across all media, then please email lizzy.clark@harrishill.co.uk for more details.

Apply by 30 June. Details and application here.

2. Engagement Manager

As Engagement Manager, you will help to define a new engagement strategy reaching out to multiple sectors, policy-makers and influencers on many of today’s key issues. You will be pivotal in sharing innovative ideas from hundreds of Fellows’ research trips around the world and their projects across the UK. You will help to build the charity’s presence, influence and networks, by systematically promoting Fellows and staff within key sectors.

You will drive this process from start to finish: researching issues, identifying influencers, spotting and creating engagement opportunities (such as talks, events and briefings), sharing knowledge through a range of channels, and co-ordinating long-term relationships with stakeholders. Working closely with the Communications Director, you will also be involved in launching an ‘ideas and issues’ section on the website and will be fully involved in a major rebrand exercise.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience of managing an effective engagement strategy, the ability to develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, an interest in researching and impacting a wide range of topical issues, and strong presentational skills in writing and in person. If you’re an ideas person with a strategic approach and creative flair, with an audience-focussed approach and a passion for promoting new ideas and remarkable people across the whole of UK society, then please email harriett.stevens@harrishill.co.uk for more details.

Apply by 7 July. Details and application here.
