Job Description

We want a world where no one dies from hunger. Life-threatening hunger is predictable, preventable and treatable. Join Action Against Hunger and together we will stop it in its tracks.  Action Against Hunger is an optimistic, inspiring place to work. We want passionate and dedicated people to help build a better world. We’re a creative team made up of people with a wide range of talents, styles and expertise. But we are united in our relentless dedication to end world hunger.  No challenge is too big. With you we can do it.  Join us.

The Internal Communications and Engagement Officer is a brand-new role within Action Against Hunger UK. You’ll be responsible for supporting the development and implementation of an internal communications and engagement strategy designed to facilitate the delivery of core areas of our work: from organisational strategy, to enhancing the consultation and communication channels between senior management and our staff team, as well as to strengthening our work around diversity, equality and inclusion.  This is a new area of dedicated activity within the HR department, and we are keen to attract a highly organised individual with excellent written and verbal communication skills who is enthused by the prospect of using their creative flair and turning ideas into tangible actions which enhance meaningful connections across the organisation. You’ll also have a keen interest in, and a clear ambition to develop, a career in Internal Communications.

Previous experience in an internal communications environment, whilst desirable, is by no means essential: for the right candidate who can demonstrate a strong level of potential we can build a professional development plan that will enhance both your knowledge and skills alongside and in tandem with the development of the internal communications function.

You’ll need to send us your CV but what is equally important is the supporting statement you must also send us, telling us not only what you will bring to the role but also why you want to start or develop your internal communications career with us. 

Closing Date: 22 September 2023 Interview Date: w/c 2 Oct 2023 TBC.

Please read the following carefully before making your application: then all you need to do is send your CV and write a supporting statement explaining why you want the job and how your skills and experience make you the right person for the role and where you saw this vacancy.
