Are you a proactive and creative communicator? Can you produce engaging social media content and support wider multichannel campaigns? Can you spread the word through inspired and inspiring digital marketing? Can you add a little flair, a little magic and a lot of energy to how we shape and deliver our social media plans? Can you get our award-winning films seen by more people? Can you persuade the right kind of influencers to support our campaigns?

Our social media channels are a powerful set of communication tools for us, playing a crucial role in helping us reach, engage and inform people about human rights here in the UK. That’s why we’re looking for an enthusiastic, innovative thinker to work across a full spectrum of social media to promote our storytelling on human rights and raise the profile of our brand.

The panel shows a boy curled up in the centre of the panel, with his parents reaching out to him with the text "I had to leave my mum’s home because I was already doing bad things at that age. I didn’t know how they felt. They didn’t know what I was doing. I had no real family connection."

Reporting to our Creative Director, Sarah Wishart, you will generate material for our whole range of different audiences and grow and diversify our social media following. You’ll need to manage short-term and long-term projects simultaneously and use monitoring tools to evaluate the success of campaigns, feeding back to colleagues and helping the organisation learn as it goes. With your help, our growing team will get the most out of social media across our existing channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, and look to expand into new spaces (such as Tiktok or Reddit).

Alongside this, an important part of the role will be to seek out opportunities for our messaging about human rights to join wider, relevant conversations on social media.
