Campaigns Manager

Campaigns Manager

Harris Hill is excited to be partnering with the National Literacy Trust in its search for a new Campaigns Manager to lead on its behaviour change campaigns with local communities across the UK.

Based in London but working nationally, the NLT's Campaigns Manager will be responsible for planning and delivering behaviour change campaigns in their national Hubs and other target areas. This includes innovative campaign strategies to spread impactful key messages among communities and affect behaviours among target demographics.

Partnership working is a key element of the National Literacy Trust's success, and the Campaign Manager will be expected to build relationships with partners including the media, local businesses, schools, libraries, sporting clubs and more, as well as organising community engagement events and initiatives involving local children and families.

In relation to the inherent variety of Campaigns Manager positions, this particular role has a core mix of project management, behaviour change, community engagement and communications/marketing, along with broader partnership working. As such, the postholder will need to demonstrate significant experience of these aspects, as well as, ideally, knowledge of local or regional campaigning. The Campaigns Manager will be expected to line manage a Campaigns Officer; although line management experience is not essential, you'll need to demonstrate capability to take on this responsibility (perhaps you have managed an intern, for example).

This is a full-time, permanent position paying 36,000 p.a., with an application process of a CV and cover letter to harry.marven@harrishill.co.uk . A shortlist of applicants will be submitted on Monday 16th September and interviews will not be conducted before this date. If you are interested in this position, please send your most recent CV to harry.marven@harrishill.co.uk to get the ball rolling.

About the National Literacy Trust

One person in six has poor literacy skills that impact on every area of their life. A child without good reading, writing and communication skills will struggle to succeed at school, and as an adult they could be locked out of the job market. Poverty doubles the likelihood that, by the age of five, a child's literacy skills will be below average.

We are an independent charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK by giving disadvantaged children the literacy skills they need to succeed. Our research and analysis make us the leading authority on literacy. We run projects in the poorest communities, campaign to make literacy a priority for politicians, businesses and parents, and support schools.

We are a rapidly growing organisation, with ambitious plans and amazing staff. We have 25 years' experience of delivering programmes and campaigns to improve the skills and confidence levels of those most in need of support. Partnerships are an essential part of our work with the education sector, with businesses and with community partners. We work closely with both national and local government. Our funders and partners include high street brands such as McDonald's, WHSmith and Clarks Shoes, and large multinationals such as Lanc me, KPMG and PwC. We have our main office in Vauxhall, London, as well as people working to support our community activity around the country.
