PraxisAuril is a critical advocate for the KE profession and exists to develop and promote best practice by ensuring that its members are among the most highly-skilled, best-informed, forward-thinking and well-connected KE practitioners anywhere in the world.

We are seeking to appoint a Marketing Communications Manager who will shape and implement a multi-channel communications strategy to: drive sales for PraxisAuril’s products and services; profile its advocacy and stakeholder engagement activities; and increase awareness of the work of its member organisations, nationally and internationally.

- be able to communicate confidently and effectively with a variety of target audiences, including PraxisAuril’s members, stakeholder organisations, volunteer contributors and external suppliers

- enjoy working in a small, flexible team and be pro-active, delivery focussed and ‘hands-on.’

An eye for detail, superb organisational and IT skills and a ‘can-do’ attitude are pre-requisites for this role.  Experience of working in a membership-based organisation would be an advantage.

This post is 37.5 hours per week.  Flexible working hours, location and applications for job share will be considered.  Competitive salary.  Interviews will be held at our Cambridge office week beginning 13 August.
