Communications Co-ordinator, Create Jobs Programme

Hours: Full time
Contract: Fixed Term / 12 Months (possible extension pending funding)
Salary range: £19k- £25k (depending on experience)

A New Direction is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to ensure that all children and young people in London can develop their creativity and play an active part in the culture and heritage of the city.

We are recruiting for the role of Communications Co-ordinator for Create Jobs, our employability programme for young Londoners, which aims to transform London’s workforce by supporting and developing individuals who are under-represented in the creative and digital industries.

The Communications Co-ordinator is a pivotal and active member of the team and is key to the planning and delivery of all aspects of the Create Jobs Communications and Young People's recruitment strategies. Areas of responsibility include digital communications (web, social media and e-communications), to print production, events, press and media. The role sits within the Communications function of A New Direction, but is very much part of the wider Create Jobs team, acting as the conduit between the two.

We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and hands-on individual who is willing to get stuck in, demonstrate initiative, and contribute creatively to communicating our offer and narrative to young people, employers and partners alike, combining technical expertise with a passion for creating change and making a difference.
