Communications Officer

Sufra NW London is a Community Hub that provides a lifeline to people in crisis – including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless or socially isolated. We provide them with the food and support they need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them to find work and become financially stable.

We are recruiting a Communications Officer to develop and implement the charity’s communications strategy and support the Fundraising Manager. The post will work closely with senior staff to manage internal and external communications and marketing campaigns to raise the profile of the charity, engage new audiences and existing stakeholders, and generate income.

We are seeking a highly articulate and proactive individual with a flair for communications and 3 years’ experience in a similar communications role. The candidate will have excellent writing skills, be a confident communicator and an organised self-starter. You will have demonstrable experience of managing a diverse workload and being able to prioritise tasks and work under pressure. Graphic design skills would be desirable but not essential.

This is an immensely rewarding role working in a dynamic charity built on an ethos of sharing, hospitality and inclusivity. We are looking for an exceptionally committed individual who is willing to go the extra mile and has flexibility to work during evenings and weekends when necessary. Through your activities, you will be able to convey the charity’s passion and commitment to supporting vulnerable people and demonstrate the impact of our interventions in transforming the lives of beneficiaries.
