Job Description

Are you a social media expert, who has a passion for storytelling and building engaged communities? Do you want to use your knowledge and skills to make a difference to the lives of seriously ill children? Then this is the job for you!

This is a vital role at GOSH Charity, as we build our new marketing and communications strategy with digital being a key enabler. You will need a creative eye and an ability to see the bigger picture, to spot trends and embed insight into campaign strategy. A hands-on approach is essential, and we are looking for someone who is just as excited about the technical delivery of the role as the strategic elements.

About the team

The Social Media Manager sits within the Digital Engagement team which is made up of Social Media, Digital Marketing, Digital Content and the Charity Website. The Digital Engagement team is part of the wider Marketing and Communications directorate. You will have responsibility for line managing the Social Media Executive, whilst working closely with the Senior Social Media Executive and the Hospital Digital team.

About the role

This is a high-profile role with responsibility for the charity social media channels. You will manage planning, executing, and evaluating our organic social strategies, leading to:

  • Audience-led, social-first content that amplifies the voice of patients, families, and staff, motivates existing supporters and raises brand awareness
  • One-on-one, and one-to-many, relationships with our audience, through social community engagement and online supporter care
  • Increased skills and understanding of social best practice enabling fundraisers to control their own projects and social media performance, with expert guidance and support from the social media team
  • An empowered, expert social team overseeing quality control and strategic direction of our channel mix

The ideal candidate:

You must be external-looking, with an eye for digital trends and social media innovation, with an appetite to trial new ideas and techniques on our channels. The Social Media Manager must inspire others within the Digital Engagement team, and across the charity, to use social media effectively and innovatively to raise money and increase brand awareness.

About the charity

And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Our staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you.

Recently awarded with a ‘Best Companies 2-star accreditation' and placed number 17 on the 2019 Sunday Times Best 100 Not-for-Profit Companies list – we offer a range of attractive benefits including; a flexible approach to working, 30 days holiday, life assurance, enhanced employer pension contributions, and a discounted season ticket loan.
