We’re hiring a new Peer Communications Officer!

Job Title: Peer Communications Officer

Hours: Part-time, 21 hours per week

Location: NW9, London (Hybrid)

Salary: £25,000 pro rata, (£15,000 actual)

Closing date: 19 April 2023

Would you describe yourself as digitally savvy? Do you have communications experience?  Are you looking for a great opportunity to showcase and develop your creativeness and expertise? If you have lived experience of disability, which could include a long-term health or mental health condition, then you could really thrive at our inclusive organisation.

We are looking to recruit to a Peer Communications role to work closely with our Comms team to develop and maintain a suite of promotional comms channels, including social media, website, videos, digital and print flyers, and newsletters.

This role has a strong digital communications bias, and we are looking for someone who can really help develop marketing collateral to help drive up engagement with local disabled people and ensure our comms represents the diversity and intersectionality of disabled people in the borough, as well as driving engagement from our wider stakeholders.

You’ll have an engaging written and verbal communication style that you can adapt to suit different audiences, including writing accessibly when required.  You will be confident finding your way around ICT systems and resolving basic technical issues by liaising with our external providers.

With a good instinct for what’s on message for the organisation, you’ll be able to capture the attention of our key audiences.  At the same time, you’ll be confident liaising with the wider Inclusion Barnet team and project leaders to develop and update content. Most of all, you’ll share our beliefs in the power of lived experience and the need for society to remove barriers for disabled people.

If you would like to work in an inclusive and supportive environment and think you could encourage disabled people in the Barnet community to share their views and experience with us, we’d like to hear from you.

You’ll be creating and posting social media and website content for us and our partners, and helping to develop its appeal. There is plenty of opportunity to develop your communication skills in the role, as you support us to develop our website and generate new social media presence and other creative engagement opportunities.

The successful candidate will become part of a friendly and supportive team, working within a focused but flexible culture, where diversity is valued, and you can bring your whole self to work.

Home working is standard for this role, though there is the option to work from our office in Barnet if desired.

Lived experience of disability, which could include long-term health or mental health condition, will be needed to successfully deliver the role.  We also encourage applications from Black, Asian and other minoritised candidates with lived experience of disability, who are currently underrepresented in our organisation.

To apply, please submit your CV with a brief covering letter clearly stating how you meet the person specification.  Please include information on how you would use your lived experience of disability to successfully deliver the role.

This is a fixed term contract until 31st March 2024 in the first instance, extendable subject to future funding.
