Digital Communications Officer

Join our team! We are looking for a Digital Communications Officer

Are you a creative communicator with a flair for social media and content creation and a commitment to gender equality?

If so, this could be the role for you.

The Women’s Budget Group (WBG) is the UK’s leading feminist economics think tank, providing evidence on women’s economic position and proposing policy alternatives for a gender-equal economy.

Having been through a period of growth, our small team is expanding! You will lead on content for our website, newsletter and social media channels, helping us to reach new audiences and translate complex ideas into accessible and engaging short videos, infographics and other images.

WBG is committed to diversity and inclusion. We use positive action under section 159 of the Equality Act in relation to disability or race. This means that if we have two candidates of equal merit in our process, we will seek to take forward the disabled or Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic candidate in order to diversify our staff team.

In the event that the shorter working week does not become permanent, hours will be negotiable between 30 hours and 37.5 hours per week. We are happy to consider flexible working arrangements and invite job share applications. Some out of hours working will be required for which TOIL will be given.

Location: Hybrid London / remote.  The postholder must be resident in the UK with the right to work in the UK. Office is in Vauxhall, London. Post can be worked as office based or a mixture of office/remote working with at least two days per week in the office.

Duration: 18 month contract with potential to extend subject to funding.
