The National Federation of Women’s Institutes (the NFWI) is an umbrella body providing support and advice to members at both regional and local levels.

As the Marketing and Communications Manager for Denman, our day and residential centre for learning, you will actively raise its profile, as you deliver effective marketing, communications and media relations campaigns. In particular, you will take ownership of the brand identity, harness the power of our customer database, and oversee the production of attractive and persuasive course brochures, posters and flyers.

From day-to-day, you could find yourself writing copy, updating websites, liaising with designers and our Head of PR, talking to the media, drafting reports for senior management and evaluating market and competitor research, so you can expect constant challenge and considerable visibility.

Of graduate calibre or professionally qualified in marketing, you will bring sound experience of media relations, advertising and promotion. Needless to say, you should be adept at identifying business opportunities, producing high-quality collateral and building the bottom line, and you will be highly self-motivated, passionate and deadline-driven.

Finally, you should be flexible regarding hours and responsibilities, including some weekends on a rota basis, and happy to travel extensively to London and around the UK.

In return, you will enjoy 28 days’ annual leave, membership of our Healthcare scheme and Cycle to Work scheme, and more.

Please note, this is a fixed term post to cover maternity leave until the end of June 2020.
