Full time 37.5 hours per week.

Salary: £20-25k p.a.

Closing date: 22 February

 

The role

Community Integrated Care is one of Britain’s biggest and most successful social health and social care charities.

We are looking to appoint a Digital Communications and Marketing Executive, who will take lead responsibility for the management and effectiveness of our website, social media and other digital media output. You will be joining a productive and successful team that has been recognised with a host of prestigious marketing awards, including being named the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Northern In-House Team of the Year.

This role will be both technical and creative. It will encompass website and social media management, SEO, digital journalism, multimedia production and content marketing.

This position offers the exciting opportunity of leading on the development of a new website for Community Integrated Care, which will be highly optimised, packed with rich media, and provide engaging content that will encourage people to connect with our charity.

The Executive will also manage our social media channels, providing great content, delivered in a brand-appropriate tone. They will know how to use social media to reach key influencers and people who can create opportunities for our charity, and be skilled at maximising the value and social ‘sharability’ of our output.

They will implement online our content marketing framework, working in close collaboration with our External Communications and Marketing Officer. This will see them ensure that our assets are well optimised and encourage people to connect with our organisation.

They will manage and create a range of media – including video, publications, photographs, infographics, blogs, articles and guides – and will be skilled at ensuring they are audience appropriate and well promoted. The Executive will also oversee the creation and implementation of email newsletters, for both professional and public audiences.

SEO will be a key focus of this role. The Executive will follow best practice for web design, ensure that our copy is focussed on user-search, and effectively build relevant inbound links to our site. It is expected that PPC will become an important aspect of this role, and that the Executive will implement targeted social media and Google AdWords ad campaigns.

They will measure the output of our digital work using analytical platforms and implement an agreed ROI framework to report on the effectiveness of our efforts. They will manage our databases, supporting audience segmentation and new business opportunities. They will also lead on our use of CRM and audience profiling tools.

In addition to developing our own output, they will also maximise our presence on other sector relevant platforms and sites. This could include care sector, council and regulatory directories, and sites that give individuals opportunities to directly purchase care and support.

As well as having strong digital skills, you will also be able to write well and have a creative vision, meaning that you don’t just implement to our online output, but rather make an invaluable contribution to it too.

The candidate

The Executive will be self-motivated, and fired-up by the potential of raising the profile of one of Britain’s biggest and most successful health and social care charities online. They will gain great satisfaction from producing exceptional work and achieving results.

The person will be passionate about digital and have experience of building and sustaining an effective online presence. But as well as being technically gifted at using digital tools, you will also have a creative vision and the writing abilities to independently implement our marketing activities.

The person will know how to create engaging digital content, either independently developing it or by repurposing materials produced for offline marketing activity.

They will have a broad set of technical skills including: social media marketing, SEO, PPC, email marketing and the use of analytics platforms. Ideally, they will also have additional creative digital skills, such as a basic knowledge of Photoshop and Adobe platforms, and basic video editing abilities. It would be advantageous for the candidate to have experience of CRM and enquiry management platforms.
