About the role
This is an exciting time to join the NHS Confederation. We are the only member organisation that represents the whole of the health and care system as the NHS move towards system working in the largest shakeup in recent years. The communications and membership manager is a new role, and will give the right candidate the opportunity to develop their career as they work closely with senior NHS leaders across clinical commissioners and integrated care systems. They will engage in a wide range of communications activity, influencing and campaigning on behalf of our members. 

The role is part of the external affairs team, which also leads on public affairs and media relations and as such, the postholder will be expected to form part of the press office on-call rota alongside other colleagues, for which an additional allowance will be provided.

Also, as our organisation has an office in Leeds, occasional travel to this site (for example; one day every two months post pandemic) may be required.

You will have worked already in communications, either in a charity or NHS organisation, and have a proven track record in a range of comms disciplines, from achieving good coverage to creating strong member-led content for websites, social channels and bulletins.  You will be able to demonstrate a creative flair for communicating complex information in accessible ways, understand how to represent member views and use them effectively to influence decision-makers.
