Public Engagement Officer
35 hours per week
£29,209 per annum / pro rata (plus allowances)
If you’re an excellent project manager, passionate about young people, and create communications that inspire action, this could be the role for you. As one of our Public Engagement Officers, you’ll support the development of communications across multiple channels. You’ll deepen audience understanding of the challenges that young people face. You’ll manage projects end to end. Using insight, you’ll deliver compelling campaigns with young people right at the centre. You’ll encourage audiences to give their time, money and voice.
To achieve our goal, we’ve got to approach things differently. That’s why you’ll need to be brave and ambitious - helping to stretch our brand and contributing to a test and learn culture where we challenge assumptions and the status quo.
We work across domains, and knowledge groups. Our work is carried out in expeditions. As Public Engagement Officer, you’ll be involved in critical expeditions, collaborating with colleagues across the organisation.
