Charitable Purpose: Teapot Trust is at the forefront of transformative mental health support for children and young people living with chronic conditions and their families. We provide a UK wide programme of art therapy and creative interventions, in hospitals, in community venues and online. Through art, we help children express emotions which they may not be able to articulate verbally, build their resilience and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

Role: With exciting plans ahead, including a content-rich project on a national platform (media announcement imminent), we are looking for an experienced marketing and communications professional to help promote the charity’s mission and work. The Marketing and Communications Officer will play an important role within the team, helping us share the impact of our work, while advocating for parity in the treatment of mental and physical health, so that art therapy becomes more widely accessible to all who need it.

Familiar with marketing strategy and tools to increase engagement, the post holder will be responsible for our communication channels and content, shaping our social media, mailings, and website. You will work to deliver a message with authenticity and resonance, engaging identified stakeholders in appropriate dialogue rather than “pushing out” the same messages across all platforms. As a mental health charity, it’s crucial that we claim that expertise and engage with influencers and stakeholders beyond our core beneficiaries.

Experience gained in the charity sector and an understanding of and empathy with our work is important. We are looking for a creative person, capable of developing new and exciting content while managing and prioritising a diverse workload. Excellent administrative skills and effective teamworking are essential. If you are a motivated and organised individual interested in playing a key role in a growing charity with widespread impact, we’d love to hear from you.
