A New Direction is looking for a PR & Marketing Manager to lead and develop a PR and marketing strategy, specifically focusing on our creative employment programme for young Londoners, Create Jobs.

We are a team passionately working to make a difference to the lives and opportunities of creative and diverse young people, and influencing change within the cultural, creative and digital industries.

Over the coming year we have a very full and ambitious programme and are looking for someone who will complement this delivery and who has the motivation to help us grow. We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and hands-on individual who demonstrates initiative and will contribute to our employment and skills strategy, aligning experiences and opportunities that meet skills gaps and alternative pathways for employers and young people alike.

We want to find ways to tell our story most effectively, make connections, build networks, raise our profile and build our reputation with partners, funders, as well as our audience of creative young people looking for work, training and opportunities.

We need someone with strong B2B, charity or creative sector PR and communications experience, who is values driven, identifies with our ethos, and can work collaboratively within a small and busy programme team who are delivering complex programmes with multiple stakeholders, partners and funders.

Line managed within the Employment programme team, the post-holder will need to work closely and collaboratively with Senior communications colleagues across A New Direction's wider programme, connecting and planning within the wider context of the charity's work.
