Join the Network

JUSTICE increasingly recognises the importance and power of external communications to share and increase the impact of our work and in turn the successful delivery of our purpose. We are looking for a senior communications professional to primarily lead and deliver JUSTICE’s external communications as well as provide advice and input with our internal communications.

The Head of Communications will be pivotal in the evolution of our communications efforts, as we strive to not only reach ever wider audiences but also to engage and activate them.

The Head of Communications will be a hands-on leader, responsible for the development and operational delivery of our communications strategy. You will report directly to the Chief Executive and work closely with the Senior Management Team and across the organisation. You will also work closely with and provide oversight and direction to our Membership and Communications Coordinator.

The post holder will be responsible for developing the JUSTICE brand, our marketing and our messaging, communicating the charity’s impact, and supporting and continually seeking ways to improve the success of fundraising programmes, events, partnerships, and initiatives.

We are looking for a highly creative and collaborative individual with a strong strategic mindset helping JUSTICE to punch even further above its weight. You’ll bring fantastic communication skills and a demonstrable track record of securing change through communication and experience of demonstrating and measuring impact.

The post holder will be comfortable working at both a strategic and day-to-day delivery level and will need to ensure any communications remain aligned to our values and maintain our ‘personality’ as a serious, independent and influential organisation, rather than a campaigning charity.

This is an exciting time for JUSTICE as we start to build our new strategy and grow our organisation, including our income streams which will be supported by this new role.

The successful candidate will be appointed to a full-time post on a permanent basis, with flexible working requests including job share or compressed hours considered. The role will be based at our London office, with some remote/hybrid working. Our staff enjoy flexible working conditions, 27 days annual leave (plus the week between Christmas and the New Year), 8% employer pension contribution (rising to 10.5% after two years) annual salary review (measured against inflation), and access to an Employee Assistance Programme and Headspace.
