Youth Futures Foundation is the What Works Centre for youth employment. We exist to address the significant disparities in youth employment for marginalised groups. We want to ensure that all young people are able to access and keep good quality jobs. 

The problem we are aiming to address is growing. It is alarming that there are 788,000 16-24-year-olds not in education, employment and training (NEET), a 13% increase in the last year and more than during the pandemic. 

We are looking for a talented Head of Marketing and Communications, who working with  the Director of Policy and Communications, will create and deliver  the organisation’s overall marketing and communications strategy to support Youth Futures to grow its influence and impact.

You will drive our reach with external audiences in support of building the influence and impact of our work and our brand with the audiences that can help change the youth employment landscape for the better. Leading a small team including a Marketing Communications Executive and a Media and Communications Manager,  you will create regular, compelling, audience focused content and messaging utilising our research and evaluation outputs and wider work to drive change in youth employment practice and policy. You will leverage the power of existing and new platforms, channels, networks and the advocacy of stakeholders to maximize the marketing and communications potential of our work.

This is a fantastic opportunity to use your imagination and creativity to deliver consistent, compelling marketing and communications activities and campaigns with an ambitious  organisation. We are looking for a bold and effective senior marketing and communications professional with the knowledge, experience and skillset to deliver high quality engagement to generate lasting change.
