Communications Lead with a Passion for Policy?
User Voice is at a really exciting point in our development as we continue to grow and we are looking for a dynamic person, committed to our values, to help showcase our achievements and impact.
User Voice was created for and is run by people who have been in prison and on probation. Lived experience means we engage empathetically instead of sympathetically.
We exist to reduce offending and improve rehabilitation by working with the most marginalised people in and around the criminal justice system. We ensure that practitioners and policy-makers hear their voices.
We are seeking to recruit a Communications Lead to run all our communications and PR activities, working collaboratively with our volunteers and staff teams to raise awareness of what we do.
This new role requires an individual with strong content writing and design skills, who can bring creative flair to our outputs and work with our teams on the ground to showcase the amazing work they do. You will be responsible for all our internal and external comms, run events, work with key decisions makers and have a keen interest in policy. A strategic thinker, you will plan and implement multi-channel communications campaigns that effectively promote the key messages that our service users need us to share.
The successful candidate will be self-driven, energetic, proactive, committed to delivery, and enjoy working in a team whilst also taking ownership. As User Voice is a relatively small team, you must be comfortable being hands-on. Adaptability and resilience are key personal qualities for this role, the Communications Lead will be working in a fast-paced environment, and be capable of flexing to a rapidly changing environment.
We particularly welcome applications from ex-offenders and from all sections of the community regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability.
