Army Families Federation – Social Media Assistant (temporary fixed-term role)



Our aim at the Army Families Federation is to give Army families a voice.  We listen to what they have to say and provide information and guidance that supports all aspects of family life – from housing to childcare and schooling, from healthcare to employment and training – both in the UK and overseas. And, as an independent charity, we work hard to make sure that the voice of Army families is heard by policy makers and service providers.  If you have a keen interest in the quality of life of Army families and are looking for a flexible role in a friendly, but focused, organisation, we would love to receive your application.  

About the role

This role will provide temporary professional assistance to the AFF Communications Team and leads on delivery of AFF’s social media output on all major social media platforms. The role ensures that all content across AFF’s platforms is in line with AFF’s aims and objectives, and accurately reflects AFF’s work and values.

The post is part-time with the possibility to agree flexible hours (minimum 30 per week – up to 35 per week) to be worked Monday – Friday within normal office hours. Annual salary will depend on hours agreed, with 30 hours per week attracting £19,812 up to 35 hours per week attracting £23,114 per annum.

This is a home-based role and may suit a marketing graduate looking to expand their portfolio, or a more experienced social media professional seeking part-time and temporary work.

Please note that this is a temporary contract for a fixed term of six months from commencement.

What we are looking for

The successful candidate will have relevant training or a qualification in social media marketing together with recent experience of using major social media platforms to promote business aims and branding.
