Marketing Campaigns Executive – Fixed Term 6 month contract

What we can offer

Music, it’s in our DNA. We use the power of music to enrich the lives of people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability and we are the largest music therapy charity in the UK. We are Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.  Let’s face it, the last 18 months have been incredibly trying.  Charities including us have found themselves in a whole new world of fundraising with our events income stifled and asks of any kind facing testing hurdles.  But we have thrived on these challenges, and Nordoff Robbins is now looking for a Marketing Campaigns Executive to join our experienced, supportive Marketing, Communications and Engagement team to help us reach more people across the UK through the power of music.

We are NR

If you want to work at a charity with people and music at its heart, that is committed to providing an equitable, diverse and inclusive workplace full of inspiring colleagues who work tirelessly to put those it exists to serve front and centre of everything we do, if you want to work collaboratively with integrity, kindness and are willing to come with us on our adventures as we work together to come to work with strong backs, soft fronts and wild hearts, we may well be your next team.

Are you NR?

If you are values driven, courageous, curious, agile, flexible, enthusiastic and future focused (without losing sight of the here and now), if you can bring positivity and accountability to your work, if you strive for brilliance, challenges excite you and if you would speak with passion and dedication about our cause we want to hear from you!

What we are looking for

What we need:

Primarily, we need you to be able to start immediately – or as close as!  We start prepping for the Carol Concert now, so you’ll also need to be ok with seeing the word Christmas in September! (Santa hat can be provided)

The ideal candidate will be a proactive thinker and worker, providing marketing support and solutions to the whole team, capable of the following:

  • Background: Relevant experience in digital, marketing or communications environment. Previous charity experience is an advantage.  Relevant marketing degree or accreditation desirable but not essential.
  • Organised: You’ll be highly organised with the ability to manage multiple projects and work under pressure, often to tight deadlines.
  • Team player: You’ll be a supportive, enthusiastic, and proactive team member with the drive and determination to help get things done.
  • Relationship Management: You’ll be providing support on a range of projects with multiple teams and so we’re looking for someone with brilliant relationship building skills.
  • Writing: You’ll be experienced in writing content for a variety of media, with a brilliant style that can range from punchy to emotive, to suit different audiences and activations. You’ll have a high standard of literacy and excellent attention to detail.
  • Social and Digital: You’ll have a brilliant grasp of how social and digital marketing can be used to engage audiences.
  • Systems: Ideally, you’ll have experience in the use of social media scheduling platforms, Adobe Photoshop, website content management systems, e.g., WordPress, Pardot CRM platforms and analytics software.
  • Creativity: You’ll be a creative, innovative thinker and storyteller.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to be musical, but you do need to be able to work cross-organisationally with colleagues in all areas of the charity from music therapists to the People team.

3 best things about the job (in our humble opinion)

  • You’ll get to use your skills to make a real and positive difference through the power of music to people who are faced with significant challenges
  • You’ll be working on the flagship event with some of the UK’s most celebrated music talent
  • You’ll have the opportunity to develop a variety of skills through project planning

A salary of £26,799 (plus £1500 London Weighting – total £28,299) (pro rata for part time hours)
