We have an exciting new opportunity for a motivated Multimedia Manager who will be responsible for managing and producing engaging digital content to tell the story of the British Red Cross on its social channels and website.

The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We mobilise human kindness to support people at the most vulnerable moments of their lives.

In the UK and overseas, our staff and volunteers respond to many of the defining issues of our time. These range from the health and social care needs of an aging population; domestic terror attacks and major fire incidents; the refugee crisis in Europe; right through to issues of protracted conflict and chronic hunger driving migration across the world.

Our reshaped Communications and Engagement Directorate is charged with giving voice to people in crisis. We are looking for outstanding advocates, communicators and creatives to join us and help take our engagement and influencing to the next level.

If you are a talented and committed media professional who can help us to inspire human kindness when crisis strikes, we would very much like to hear from you.

Join us and become part of our global humanitarian movement.
