Salary: £32,500 - £35,000 + Benefits p/a
Location: Farringdon EC1N
Permanent - Full Time
Closing date: 22 September 2019
MTVH is one of the UK’s leading housing associations. In the midst of a deepening housing crisis and volatile political and economic landscape, we are a robust and innovative organisation with our roots in community. We have to keep delivering new homes and services residents trust, despite the uncertainty. Our vision is to give everyone a home, and the opportunity to live well. The Communications Team sits at the core of delivering this; great stories have the power to connect us, to raise awareness and to influence how people feel and act. We place the stories of our customers and communities at the heart of what we do, and they play a huge role in helping us achieve our ambitions.
We have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and talented individual to join our communications team. This role comes with a huge opportunity to harness the power of imaginative storytelling and persuasive writing.
Working within a highly collaborative team, you’ll be hands-on planning and delivering effective communications which engage and inspire a range of audiences.
You need to play well with others; ours is a team with stakeholders in every internal department, and with a broad group beyond our own walls. Primarily your role will be about building relationships around MTVH in order to better support the business in telling its story. However you’ll also need the confidence to work and make decisions independently, advising colleagues on the best way to communicate, spotting opportunities we can leverage and contributing ideas at planning meetings.
You’ll need a great understanding of the way different channels of communications work because you’ll be undertaking a range of activities alongside the rest of the team, which on any day could include planning a campaign, running an event, answering a press call or briefing our creative team on a project. If you’re a true generalist who thrives on a diverse workload, this role is for you.
In addition to generous holiday entitlement we provide:
A matched contribution pension scheme
Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave
Salary sacrifice schemes and season ticket loans
Voluntary benefits including cash back and discounts from high street names
A commitment to flexible and agile working
