JOB VACANCY: Remember A Charity - Digital Communications Manager

Location: London SW1H 9DJ

Remember A Charity is one of the biggest single-issue campaigns in the voluntary sector. It has 200 member charities, working together to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charities in their will, after they’ve looked after their family and friends. The UK legacy market is currently worth almost £3 billion each year. A 4% change in behaviour would raise a further £1 billion for good causes every year.

The digital communications manager will lead Remember A Charity’s digital communications and strategy, raising the campaign’s online profile and help make gifts in Wills a social norm. The manager will work as an integral member of the Remember A Charity team, supporting all areas of marketing, membership and partnerships.
