Director of Communications and Engagement - USPG
USPG plays a vital role in the life of churches across cultures and contexts, facilitating the transformation of communities and individuals. Working with the churches of the Anglican Communion as peers, USPG engages with their priorities, whether these are tackling engrained forms of social injustice, like gender-based violence, or supporting survivors of trafficking, refugees, those with HIV/AIDS, building up theological education or leadership development.
Communication and engagement are critical in this. USPG is now looking for someone who shares this passion for the life and mission of Anglican Churches around the world. If you are a person with vision, with a strong strategic sense and a genuine love of the richness and diversity of culture and context and worldview – then this is the role, which will transform you and USPG. Raising its profile, engaging with new audiences and creating a deeper understanding of its work is a major organisational priority, and the real excitement in this role is to help USPG articulate its voice.
As the lead Communications professional within USPG, you will have the opportunity to shape the development of the communications function, its strategy and implementation, to drive a proactive approach to external communications and media relations, manage USPG’s engagement with the press and media, and be responsible for developing an approach to content that helps build awareness and understanding of USPG’s work among key audiences. You will also oversee a very capable and creative fundraising team and have responsibility for our engagement with volunteers, and play a role in the wider leadership of this exciting, energetic and future-focused organisation.
