Marketing and Communications Freelancer

Location: Flexible
Two days per week for an eight to ten-week period
Flexible working hours can be considered

Mayday Trust is an organisation with a network of passionate social activists working to bring about systemic change, whilst offering people going through tough times such as homelessness, leaving care, coming out of prison or experiencing emotional trauma, support through its Person-led, Transitional and Strength-based (PTS) Response.

We also lead the New System Alliance, which is a UK wide partnership working alongside others to deliver the PTS as a mechanism for person-led and strength-based systems change.

The Role

Mayday is looking for a creative and dynamic marketing and communications professional who is able to operate at a managerial level on a freelance basis for two days a week for approximately eight to ten weeks.

We are looking for someone who can support us with:

  • Carrying out the operational and technical elements of our communication function such as website development and social media posting
  • Contributing toward the development of the communications strategy including social media/ digital and content strategies
  • PR and event management
  • Development and implementation of a new CRM database
  • Management and development of our operational online platforms
  • The provision of marketing and comms analytics for the wider organisation
  • Generating new and impactful resources and content to support our operations and influence

Are you up for the challenge?

This is an opportunity for someone who understands that in the world today, the problem is not people with ‘complex needs’ but a broken system.

Mayday is looking for someone who believes in people; someone who is comfortable to challenge the norm to ensure that people we work alongside are not further trapped and institutionalised in the failing systems surrounding tough times and can build on their strengths to live the lives they choose. A vital part of this involves having a unique perspective on how we communicate as an organisation about Mayday’s work, the people we work alongside and the images and messages we portray in all of our marketing and communications.

This role is not for the faint-hearted, it is for someone with a passion for social justice, and the energy and determination to make systems work for people going through tough times.

We would be looking to pay in the region of £300 (including VAT) per day.
