Sands is the leading stillbirth and neonatal death charity and exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth.
We have a vacancy for a Campaigns Officer to support our work in saving babies’ lives, and ensuring the provision of excellent bereavement care after pregnancy or baby loss.
In this new and exciting role, you will help deliver impactful campaigns, which place saving babies lives firmly on national agendas and call for the provision of excellent bereavement care after pregnancy loss or the death of a baby.
You will be a great communicator with relevant experience including, gathering and analysing evidence to support campaigns, devising and creating compelling e-actions and demonstrating campaign impact.
With excellent verbal and written communication skills in person and in drafting engaging campaigns content, you will be able to build relationships with colleagues, volunteers and external stakeholders working in a collaborative and inclusive way.
A high level of flexibility and proactivity is essential, together with the ability to work well across different teams and on your own initiative. You will have the skills to be able to absorb and understand complex issues and get them across in a clear and concise way.
You will therefore need to demonstrate a well-organised approach, be able to cope with demanding situations and meet tight deadlines.
In addition to the above, you will understand and empathise with the needs of bereaved parents and have an excellent understanding of diversity issues.
