This is an exciting opportunity to use and hone your communications and digital skills across a variety of media within a small national charity with a reputation for excellence.

Your excellent copy writing skills, coupled with your passion for equality and human rights, will enable us to amplify our message and reach many more families who need our support. You’ll be adept at spotting a story opportunity and at using your experience to get our message across to wide range of audiences across multiple platforms.  If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
