Website Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy
We are Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and music is in our DNA. We use the power of music to enrich the lives of people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability and we are the largest music therapy charity in the UK. Post pandemic, charities including ours have found themselves in a whole new world of engagement, communication and marketing. We have thrived on these challenges and Nordoff Robbins is now looking for a Marketing and Communications officer to join our new Communications and Engagement team to help us reach more people across the UK.
We are NR
If you want to work at a charity with people and music at its heart; that is committed to providing an equitable, diverse and inclusive workplace full of inspiring colleagues who work tirelessly to put those we exist to serve front and centre of everything we do; if you want to work collaboratively with integrity and kindness and are willing to come with us on a journey as we work together and collectively come to work with strong backs, soft fronts and wild hearts, we could be your next team.
Are you NR?
If you are values driven, courageous, curious, agile, flexible, enthusiastic and future focused (without losing sight of the here and now), if you can bring positivity and accountability to your work, if you strive for brilliance, challenges excite you and if you would speak with passion and dedication about our cause we want to hear from you!
What we are looking for
What we need:
You’ll be joining our new Communications and Engagement team at an exciting time. We are planning a repositioning and rebrand which will clearly articulate the impact we have in society through music every day. This team will be the engine room driving the change to take our fundraising and brand to the next level.
Now more than ever we need people who can create bold, inspiring new ideas for digital, marketing and communications, PR, public affairs, campaigns and internal communications. We’ll achieve success by collaborating with teams across our charity to understand what makes the people we reach tick, creating and testing innovative marketing and communications ideas, and raising funds together. Your work will have a direct impact on transforming the lives of more people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability through music.
Central to the ethos of the new team is how we’ll learn and grow together, whether we do this through sharing insights as we collaborate or through training.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to be musical, but you do need to be able to work cross-organisationally with colleagues in all areas of the charity to help bring awareness of our mission, vision and achievements to the world.
