Stop scrolling. Take a moment to grab yourself a brew and get comfy.  You’re going to want to take the time to understand if you have what we’re looking for.  If you do, you may just have found the perfect role for you at what is an incredibly exciting time for our charity.

Walking With The Wounded helps veterans and families with a story to share… often a difficult one to tell.  And every once in a while, after we’ve helped them turn the page and start a new chapter in their book, they help scribble a few pages in ours.

Take Shaun for example; Shaun was 19 when he joined the Grenadier Guards in 2008.  He was twice deployed to Afghanistan and during both tours he experienced significant, traumatic events. Things went downhill after he left the Army.  He struggled to sleep, waking 10 to 15 times with nightmares he would stand disoriented in his family home.  We were lucky enough to hear Shaun’s story, lucky enough to help rebuild his life and to help him get back to where he wanted to be; not just for himself but for his wife and children.

From downhill to uphill! In 2021, Shaun and his team from the business he now owns, decided to take on the toughest route at our flagship event the Cumbrian Challenge, all whilst carry a rowing machine. Stories. That’s what Walking With The Wounded is all about, and now we need YOU to help us ensure that people hear these stories and are compelled to take action to support us and the Armed Forces Community we care so passionately about.

As our Digital Marketing Officer, you will be an integral addition to our Marketing and Communications team and as such, will find yourself working closely with not just the Head of Marketing and Engagement, but many different teams and stakeholders to ensure digital is embedded within our organisation.

You will drive digital day-to-day, input into our new marcomms strategy and provide digital solutions and/or alternatives for all aspects of fundraising and event delivery. With your help, Walking With The Wounded will be in the position to create and deliver compelling campaigns and propositions which have the power to activate support, expand our digital offering and establish and increase our online audiences.

You should see yourself as an expert in your field with a crucial part to play in the success of Walking With The Wounded.  You will bring passion and enthusiasm of Digital to the team with the view of promoting the organisation and our fundraising activities.  You will also help generate new ideas and support the delivery of digital/hybrid campaigns and events e.g., Walking Home For Christmas.
