Work with us

Advert: Communications Coordinator

Are you looking to make a difference across the children’s heart community?

As the sole communications person at ECHO, you will use your communication, marketing and design skills to create online and offline resources that promote ECHO, to grow our membership and support fundraising.

You will work closely with our Operations and Development Lead to create a communications strategy and with the team to raise our voice across all channels: digital marketing, printed newsletters and reports will come from you.

You will update and create content for our website that parents / carers and young people with heart conditions can understand and interact with.

This is an exciting, hands-on, and fast-paced role, ideally suited to someone skilled in content-creation and relationship-building who has a good eye for detail.

You will need great organisation and communication skills, as you will be working with a number of teams across the charity, NHS, Education, and other sectors. You will also be adept at time management and prioritisation and have experience of managing multiple projects and activities at once.
