Senior Creative Content Officer

5th April 2019

Are you a confident, engaging storyteller? Do you have a passion for creating great content? Are you keen to inspire and empower young people to share their own stories?

As Raleigh International’s new Senior Creative Content Officer, you will be responsible for developing and leading on a new global content strategy to deliver powerful, emotive digital and written content which supports our brand and brings the work of our young volunteers to life.

It is an exciting time to take on this key role in our Communications Team. We’re building a new, energetic team, embracing new ways of working, and collaborating with each other so that we can champion youth voice throughout our work and inspire young people to find creative ways to drive long-lasting change in the world.

You will use your excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills to work with teams across the organisation, both in London and in our international offices, to assess content needs and plan, create and deliver inspiring stories of youth-led change. You will ensure systems and processes are in place and working effectively to manage and deliver content – films, photos and stories – for use in marketing, fundraising, advocacy, reporting and communications to reach our target audiences.

Using your journalistic and interviewing skills, you will identify exciting youth-led stories of change that evidence how young people are addressing some of the most pressing global issues. You will be able to travel internationally on content-gathering briefs, no more than three times per year, and you will deliver training as required.

As well as developing content yourself, you will work directly with young people. A key part of this role will be coaching, inspiring and supporting young people around the world to share their own stories through all forms of media.

You will manage and work creatively with a Digital Content Producer and provide content support to the communications team, as well as communications volunteers and colleagues in our countries of operation.

The content you produce will help to inspire a generation of young people to become volunteers on our programmes, build strong relationships and engagement with those who have volunteered in the past so they can continue to create change, and encourage people to support our work.
