At Barnardo’s we believe in children. Our purpose is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and our vision is to realise Thomas Barnardo’s dream of a world where no child is turned away from the help that they need. Family Placement is key to that; by providing a range of fostering and adoption services across the country, we help children and young people to enjoy the safe, secure and caring family environment that they need – when they need it most.

So this is a marketing role with a difference, and a chance to make a real difference yourself. That’s because we need you – as part of a team – to help us deliver inventive marketing solutions that recruit more foster carers and adopters while building an understanding of what we do. Managing projects and the implementation of marketing plans, you’ll track the effectiveness of campaigns, work closely with colleagues across the organisation and provide expert guidance and advice about our brand and marketing.

Qualified to degree level or equivalent, you should bring proven experience of marketing and communications gained in a complex organisation. A good understanding of current developments in the digital marketing arena is also important, combined with a knowledge of brand and corporate identity, strong teamworking skills and the ability to work well on your own initiative.

This is a fixed-term contract for 12 months.
