Digital Engagement Manager (Two Year FTC)
Based in London SW8 with scope for home and flexible working
Fixed-term contract for two years
Full-time, 35 hours per week
£33,000 per year
We are on a mission to give children and young people from disadvantaged communities the literacy skills to succeed in life. You could join us as Digital Engagement Manager for our local and national campaigns.
What you’ll be doing
We target our work in the communities that need it most, working with local partners to create better life chances for young people through system and behaviour change.
You will be responsible for supporting the planning, activation and performance of digital campaigns and delivery in these targeted areas. You will support strategic campaign development, manage tactical day-to-day deliverables and oversee the rollout of behaviour change campaigns across online communities.
Based in our Digital Team, you will work closely with colleagues across our marketing and communications directorate, including web, content and social media, as well as those leading and delivering our local community programmes around the UK.
What we’re looking for
You will be a creative and analytical digital professional, with experience developing and delivering high impact campaigns and engagement strategies. This should include multichannel campaign execution and optimisation across web, email and social media.
You will need the knowledge and confidence to be a trusted and engaging internal leader, providing advice to teams across the charity on digital strategy and delivery. You will also need excellent copywriting and content development skills and an understanding of current and future digital trends to support audience engagement planning.
Why our work is so vital
Poor literacy and resulting inequality is not inevitable. The National Literacy Trust improves the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills of those who need it most, giving them the best possible chance of success.
We make society fairer. Poor literacy creates social and economic inequality. The one in six adults in the UK with poor literacy earn less, are less likely to vote and more likely to experience health inequalities.
We enable social mobility. A child without literacy skills can’t succeed at school, and as an adult they will be locked out of the job market. The pattern is intergenerational and starts at birth.
Our work is targeted at communities with the highest levels of disadvantage and the lowest levels of literacy. We support thousands of schools and early years settings, bringing in wonderful partners like the Premier League and the nation’s best publishers who bring literacy alive. We campaign to make literacy a priority for our nation’s leaders. Our research and analysis make us the leading authority on literacy and drive our interventions.
What we offer you
As well as a competitive salary, we offer benefits including a generous leave allowance totalling 39 days (including bank holidays and office closure between Christmas and New Year), pension contributions of 8% of annual salary, a cycle to work scheme, employee assistance programme and other health and wellbeing benefits.
We support flexible working and promote a workplace where you can be yourself and contribute to our success, whoever you are.
Our people are our most important asset and we value and respect diversity in all its forms (seen and unseen). We particularly welcome applications from those from Black and Asian backgrounds, as well as candidates with disabilities and from the communities in which we work. We would like to increase representation of these groups among our staff as we know greater diversity will lead to an even greater impact for our work.
