We're sorry, we are no longer taking any applications for a Comms and Creative Manager.
Updated: Oct 1, 2021
Our amazing Theo has got an incredible new role, and as we bid him a fond farewell, we're looking for someone to join the team as our Comms and Creative Manager. The role is initially freelance, but whoever joins us will be a key part of the extended A New Normal Family...
Job Role: Comms and Creative Manager
Hours: Up to 15 per week – flexible working patterns welcomed
Location: UK based - work from home
Contract basis: Freelance
Remuneration: £20 per hour
We’re a small team of passionate people who are focussed on creating and sustaining truly inclusive working environments for our clients. We work across all sectors, and have some incredible clients, like Audible, Bauer Media, Over the Wall and Transport Focus.
About the role
The role of Comms and Creative Manager is absolutely integral to our small (but perfectly formed!) team. We’re looking for someone who knows their way around social media channels, a brilliant storyteller who can bring to life what we do and how we do it. We also create video podcasts for some of our clients, and for our own marketing, so a relaxed communication style and comfort with this wonderful virtual world of zoom is a must.
We all tend to pitch in on most aspects of work, so whilst your primary focus will be in social, comms and creative, there are opportunities to grow and develop wherever you’re interested.
You’ll be articulate, and able to share messages in our company voice – our brand is really important to us, and informs all the key areas of work for this role:
Social Media – Planning and Execution:
1. Managing our social channels (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram).
2. Working with the team to agree a plan for content each month.
3. Curating and creating content for our social channels.
4. Blogging and vlogging.
1. Using our brand guidelines to create graphics and short videos to articulate messages and client feedback.
2. Shaping our video podcasts – taking a brief to understand the messages we need to get across and providing a framework to deliver.
3. Acting as a host and facilitator for our podcasts, building rapport quickly and putting participants and panellists at ease.
1. Taking a brief for key messages for clients, drafting email and presentation content in an appropriate voice and tone for the client.
2. Managing our website – our website is something that’s evolved over the three years we’ve been up and running, and it would definitely benefit from a fresh pair of eyes and some new ideas!
You’ll be creative and articulate, a natural storyteller who gets across messages in an impactful way. Whilst it would be great to have someone who has examples of work they can share, we’re not hung up on qualifications or people who have tonnes of work experience. You could just as easily demonstrate your skills in this area through your own personal social media and creative projects. The most important attributes for a person to do this job are:
1. Real genuine passion for inclusion at work. This isn't just our work - equality and inclusion are at the core of who we are as people, so we really need someone who cares about this as much as we do.
2. An openness to understanding what inclusion and exclusion really mean -we know that lived experience helps here, and a willingness to engage in the experiences of others is absolutely vital as well. Passionate and determined allyship is a part of day-to-day life here – we all want to show up for those who don’t have as much of a voice as we do.
3. Creativity, innovation, and a willingness to challenge. We want someone who'll bring something different to A New Normal. Whilst this is initially a freelance role, you’ll be a core part of our team. We want to work with someone who really cares about the work we do, who shares our passion and who brings something different in their experience or perspective.
