Martin House provides care and support to children and young people with life limiting illnesses, and to their families. The hospice is in Boston Spa, Wetherby and we care for children and young people from West, East and North Yorkshire.

We are looking for an outstanding individual to help support our marketing and communications department and play a key role in developing and implementing effective communications for Martin House across all key functions. These will include internal communications, web and digital media, marketing, brand, publications and resources.

The stories of the families who are supported by Martin House are inspiring for our supporters and external audiences, and are key to engaging our local communities. We now need someone to tell our stories, so that more people across West, North and East Yorkshire can learn about our work and the impact it has.

Key to success in this role is an eye for detail and the ability to write engaging content across all digital platforms, as well as for our newsletters and other publications. You’ll need to have communications experience, be able to demonstrate your copywriting skills and have experience of using design packages and software to enable us to produce some leaflets, posters and graphics in house.

You’ll be joining Martin House at an exciting time, allowing you the opportunity to develop your skills across all areas of marketing and communications. This position will work closely with the Marketing and Communications Manager and PR and Communications Officer to develop and deliver powerful, engaging marketing and communications content.
