***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***
At Help for Heroes, we believe those who serve our country deserve support when they are wounded. Every day, men and women have to leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever. We help them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives.
And who are we you’re wondering? We are experts and beginners. Generalists and specialists. Ordinary people with an extraordinary passion towards making a positive change to the lives of our veterans (and having fun while doing it).
As One Team we share a philosophy – I.C.A.R.E. It’s the way we walk and talk, the way we interact with others and how we approach everything we do. We are:
Innovative – Collaborative – Authentic – Resourceful – Energetic.
We have an incredible opportunity for a CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER to join our team.
Please see below for more information on what just might be your future role.
Are you passionate about helping our veterans and their loved ones live a fulfilling life after injury or illness?
Are you a friendly, confident character with excellent interpersonal skills?
Can you plan ahead whilst still able to work at a fast pace with changing priorities?
Are you able to complete work in a timely manner, meeting deadlines whilst able to manage upwards and downwards?
Do you have experience working under pressure and with changing priorities?
Do you have excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well as an interest in current affairs and an understanding of the different types of media outlets?
We need somebody with a positive attitude and a passion for the Help for Heroes cause to join our Communications team.
