Are you interested in improving collective wellbeing? Join us at Carnegie UK in this newly created role of Head of Communications to help us deliver our new strategy.

About Carnegie UK

Carnegie UK is an endowed charitable foundation. Our purpose is to improve the wellbeing of people in the UK and Ireland. We believe that collective wellbeing happens when social, economic, environmental and democratic outcomes are seen as equally important and given equal weight. This means we aspire to a society where all have our basic needs met; where we all have a decent minimum living standard; where we live within the planet’s natural resources; and where we all have a voice in the decisions that affect us.

Carnegie UK has just launched our new strategy to put collective wellbeing at the heart of decision making and to tackle the issues that threaten wellbeing.

The Role

To help us maximise our contribution to delivering positive change, we have created the new role of Head of Communications to lead the development and delivery of our communications strategy.

You’ll be supporting the development and implementation of our new brand, identifying opportunities for us to extend our reach and influence, working closely with our internal programme teams and external partners to develop inspiring communications strategies, supporting the development of a wide range of written and creative content, overseeing the management of key communications platforms, and contributing to our culture of continuous learning and improvement.

You’ll report directly to a member of senior management and work closely with colleagues throughout the organisation.

The role will normally be based in our office in Dunfermline, with some UK travel, but will be home-based and working remotely during the current COVID restrictions. We are currently reviewing are flexible and home-working policies and anticipate that these will continue to offer some flexibility to allow a balance between individual preferences and business needs.

Carnegie UK is strongly committed to encouraging and supporting a diverse workforce and we have a programme of work in the train to improve our practice and understanding in relation to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We especially welcome applications from all in the community who can contribute to the further diversification of experiences, ideas and perspectives.
