Communications Officer (Campaigns), part time - 21 hours per week
About Carers UK
Sooner or later, most of us will face the challenge of caring for family and friends who are older, disabled or seriously ill. But it’s rarely in the plan.
Carers UK is the national membership charity for the 6.5 million people in the UK who are unpaid carers – and who save the UK a staggering £132 billion per year. As an organisation we provide expert advice and information for carers, campaign for greater recognition and support for carers, and use our experience and expertise to help other organisations do more for carers. We are seeking an organised and creative part-time Communications Officer to co-ordinate our national awareness campaigns. Working with across the Communications and Policy and Public Affairs Teams you will help to deliver a range of communication campaigns such as Carers Week and Carers Rights Day.
Why Carers UK?
Carers UK is a small charity who deliver a large scale agenda. A crucial part of this is our campaigning work to raise the profile of carers and secure much needed rights for carers. Working together with partners in national and local government, the charity sector and the business world, we are campaign to make life better for carers.
We have created a 5-year vision and plan inspired by the experiences, frustrations, passions and commitment of our members and supporters. We believe our plan can create a world where the right help and support is there, whether caring creeps up slowly or takes us completely by surprise.
The vital ingredient for delivering that plan is you. We’re building a movement of carers and everyone who recognises the importance of caring, so we can unite behind this vision and plan and work together to make it happen.
