Employment type: Full-time

Are you a great copywriter? Do you have the visual design skills to complement your words? Then help us tell our unique story and reach new audiences.

As part of our small Marketing and Communications team, you will work with operational and specialist colleagues and with the people who draw on our support, gathering and sharing our stories. You'll take the lead for developing and delivering MacIntyre's online and offline content, maximising every opportunity to raise awareness of MacIntyre and the amazing work we do. 

This is a permanent, full-time role, working 35 hours a week. Based in our Milton Keynes office, we have currently adopted a hybrid working model, so it is possible to work remotely for part of the week.

About you

You're a gifted writer and editor, with a creative eye for detail, and an understanding of a wide range of both social media and offline channels. You'll have strong project management skills, able to work well to both planned and unexpected deadlines.

Technically, you will have experience designing content in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

If you share our values, are warm, friendly and want to make a difference in people's lives, you’re likely to be a great fit. We’re looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.

You must be a driver with your own transport, as you will travel around the organisation, with some overnight stays.
