Vacancy: Communications and events assistant

This is a fantastic first step in a new career in communications and events. You will be joining a small, busy team focused on delivering the full range of marketing and communications activities in a not for profit setting. You will also work closely with the events and engagement function to support the delivery of high quality workshops and conferences.

PHG Foundation is a health policy think tank, linked to the University of Cambridge. Our mission is to make science work for health.

Supporting the Marketing and Communications Manager with day to day administration, you will have plenty of opportunity to develop the core skills that underpin effective, integrated communications strategies including four events.

While an interest in either graphic design or science writing is a plus, to get the most out of this role you will come in with a demonstrable ability to balance working on your own with an appreciation of the sensitive nature of public facing communications. You will be well organised, diplomatic and at ease working with a range of professional staff and stakeholders.

This friendly organisation has a reputation for excellence across its outputs and the right candidate can expect to make an increasing contribution to the impact of our work. There is scope for the contract to be extended.

We expect this role to be of most interest to those starting out on their career, but we are also open to applicants returning to work or seeking a career change. 

Salary range £18-22K p.a. (depending on experience) plus benefits

Full time or part time (min 30 hours p.w.)

Fixed Term – 1 year (with potential for extension)
