If you are an experienced and enthusiastic marketer, a fantastic job awaits you here at CAfS!

We are recruiting a new marketing and communications officer to spread the word about an exciting new project that will see 200 charge points for electric cars installed around Cumbria and the wider north of England.

You’ll also work alongside our project managers across all our initiatives to tackle climate change, supporting our marketing manager. You’ll engage with the public and organisations around Cumbria on topics ranging from renewable energy and food to housing and transport.

We’re looking for someone who has communications experience and who can get up and running quickly in this busy role. You’ll be a dab hand at producing all sort of marketing materials and content – from press releases and web content to leaflets and banners. You’ll be well versed in using social media, and you’ll have an advantage if you know how to set up advertising campaigns online. You really will need excellent written communication skills – you’ll have to be your own proofreader in this small, busy team!

Speaking of busy, you’ll need to be able to juggle different tasks and demands on your time – often to meet tight deadlines.

You’ll also need to be great at talking to people and motivating them to get involved in our projects. Engaging with organisations and partners is important, too. Your sound advice will ensure our communications are effective.

You’ll be part of a friendly, supportive and skilled team, here in our Penrith office. You’ll be with us for four days a week for a year initially, which might potentially be extended if new funding becomes available.

So, do you want to join us and use your brilliant skills to tackle climate change in Cumbria?
