***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***
Would you like to be part of a friendly and supportive team that works to support Army families? We have created a new role in our communications team to help produce engaging content across our channels, and now need someone to join our team!
The Army Families Federation is an independent charity which exists to improve the quality of life for Army families based both in the UK and overseas. We provide a voice for families. We listen to what they have to say and provide information and guidance that supports all aspects of family life. If you have a keen interest in the quality of life of Army families and are looking for a flexible role, we would love to hear from you.
About the role
This role offers an exciting opportunity for someone starting their career in creating content for communication channels and publications. You will work as part of a small and friendly communications team to help ensure AFF captures the voices and views of Army families.
You will interview our audience, take photos, create videos and help to write articles. We will use this content to represent the views of Army families and share them on our platforms and through Army&You, our quarterly magazine. You may not have all these skills right now, but if you are committed to developing in the role, we will help you to do that.
We will work with the successful candidate to shape a working pattern to deliver this, within a 30-35 hour working week, generally doing normal working hours. This is a home-based role (UK only), and we are asking the post holder to do some travel within the UK to capture content from Army families; this is anticipated to be around once a month.
You’ll have an eye for how to gather and create the best content for our channels. Ideally you have some relevant training or a qualification, such as a content production qualification, together with some recent experience of producing multi-platform content. We recognise that this is a constantly developing field, and we’ll support you in continuing with your professional development.
As this is a home-based role, but with the requirement to engage with families, you’ll be able to work on your own initiative, and have a confident and engaging approach. An understanding and empathy with the effects of Service life on Army families will be really important.
A full list of the skills and experience we are looking for can be found in the Job Description.
AFF welcomes applications from all sections of the community. Unfortunately, as a small independent charity, we are unable to obtain employer’s liability insurance to cover overseas-based staff, and it is not therefore possible to offer this role to a non-UK based candidate.
