Would you like to be part of the Action for Stammering Children team?

Members of our Youth Panel working on the strategy for the Charity at an Oxford away day earlier this year.

Are you driven by creating equal opportunities for all children? Do you want to raise awareness and manage national campaigns all about social issues and misconceptions? Do you want to work with a group of inspiring young people who are passionate about change?

We are looking for someone to step into our exciting role of communications and projects coordinator to lead our communications and projects at Action for Stammering Children.

In the UK, some 150,000 children and young people stammer.

Fortunately, Action for Stammering Children are here to help. With a range of activities from specialist therapy provision to awareness raising, and from mentoring programmes to high level research, we help children overcome the set-backs that stammering causes. As a result, children who stammer can look forward to the same opportunities and life chances as their non-stammering peers. Action for Stammering Children is a registered charity which, for over 30 years, has worked hand-in-hand with our partner organisation, the Michael Palin Centre, to change the lives of over 5,000 children and young people every year.

The communications and projects coordinator will be pivotal in transforming the lives of children and young people who stammer, through delivering impactful and creative messages across social media, which will show off the fantastic work done by the Charity and speech therapy team at the Michael Palin Centre. You will produce and design clear and engaging campaigns, including monthly newsletters, blogs, press releases and website content. You will get the chance to work with professionals and young people who stammer to gain insight into how to produce the best and most relevant content for different audience groups. You will strive to make the Charity a household name by getting national media coverage and partnering with relevant trusts and foundations. You will also get the chance to lead on exciting funded projects, from initial planning to showing off your brilliant results.

You will be part of a small dynamic team, who work collaboratively and flexibly and support each other.

Please see the attached documents for the full job description and person specification for this position.

The role is full time (35 hours per week), with a salary of £26,000 per annum and 25 days holiday. You will be supported in your training and career development. We have been working in a flexible way, partly from home and partly from the office, which is based near Exmouth Market, in Central London. Our work with voluntary and community organisations requires a degree of flexibility and the post holders will occasionally be expected to work out of normal office hours.

We are passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that celebrates and values diversity. We welcome your application whatever your background or situation. Under-represented groups including ethnic minorities and disabled people are strongly encouraged. If you have a passion for making a difference and share in our vision for empowering young people who stammer, we would love to hear from you.

To apply, please send in a copy of your CV and a cover letter to [email protected], highlighting why you would be a great fit for this role. Please return it by midday on Monday 3rd January 2022.
