Head of Communications, Marketing and Digital – RCVS Knowledge, London/flexible working

We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated communications professional to increase the visibility of our charity, expand our audiences and strengthen engagement across our digital platforms.

In this varied position, you’ll lead our communications team and play a key role in raising awareness of our work to advance the quality of veterinary care for the benefit of animals, the public, and society.

You will be a great communications all-rounder, with a deep understanding of what makes engaging content and experience of increasing reach and engagement through powerful story-telling and creative digital marketing campaigns. With a website re-development on the horizon, you will be comfortable leading the management of digital agencies and excited about the opportunity to make a step-change in our digital presence.

You will have a good track record of managing people, with the ability to bring together and develop a team of multi-skilled communications and digital professionals to deliver stand-out communications and marketing campaigns. As a member of our senior team, you’ll contribute to strategic discussions that shape the broader development of the charity, as well as being responsible for monitoring and achieving team targets and preparing reports for our board. You’ll also play an important role in using effective communications and marketing to drive fund-raising and other forms of income generation.

Working as part of a dynamic organisation of about 20 people, you’ll need to flex seamlessly from developing the strategic big picture to rolling up your sleeves to help deliver content, digital resources, and campaigns. While experience of the veterinary sector or human healthcare gives you a head start, it’s not a requirement and we’d love to receive applications from people completely new to the sector – most important is a commitment to learn rapidly about the veterinary professions and to develop a good understanding of different stakeholder needs.

RCVS Knowledge is a fast-growing, respected charity whose mission is to advance the quality of veterinary care for the benefit of animals, the public and society. We champion the use of evidence-based veterinary medicine in veterinary practice, and we provide practical tools, resources and education to the veterinary professions. We are the charity partner of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
