Why work for us?
The role is a great opportunity to gain experience and grow a portfolio delivering highly visible content on a broad range of gender, climate and social justice issues, leading on much of CARE's 'always-on' digital output across UK web and social.
You'll have the freedom to create whilst being given the tools and time required to plan and evaluate strategically, and have access to agency-level SEO and social planning tools, as well as Creative Cloud.
There's huge potential for professional development as you'll be supported and empowered to become a digital leader at CARE and an expert in the technology and platforms we use.
You'll have the chance to work across a broad range of digital practices including content production, web development management, SEO, content marketing, user testing and data analysis - developing experience of how to deliver digital campaigns and projects from inception to completion.
This role will be a great fit for someone who wants to do more than just churn stuff out and wants to develop an advanced understanding of what is really driving success or failure for digital communications and campaigns. You'll have solid copywriting and Photoshop skills but you'll also have an aptitude for analysis - being able to turn data into actionable content insights.

You'll engage with colleagues from across the organisation helping to deliver digital components of a broad range of brand, PR and advocacy campaigns - including CARE's flagship gender equality campaign #March4Women.
