Internal Communications Coordinator
The Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is a global humanitarian and advocacy organisation that finds, removes and destroys unexploded landmines, bombs and munitions from places affected by conflict.
We make it safe for communities to use their land again so people can take themselves out of poverty and live without fear. We also provide education programmes, particularly for children, so people can live, work, travel and play as safely as a possible until land can be cleared. Since 1989, MAG has helped over 17 million people in 68 countries rebuild their lives and livelihoods after war.
Based at our Manchester HQ, the primary purpose of the role is to provide content, create events and publications that will ensure our global workforce see all the amazing initiatives and projects MAG is carrying out. This new role to our structure, that directly reports into the Fundraising & Communications Director, will see you deliver on our Communications Improvement Project by liaising with key stakeholders across HQ and global programmes, write key messages and scripts using a variety of channels, as well as developing feedback sessions to ensure the message has been well received and understood.
You will come from a similar internal communications background and be well versed in understanding your target audience and building your messages appropriately; knowing what communication is to be relayed, when and using what medium. Besides being able to write motivational and engaging messages, you will be as technically gifted in desktop and web-based publishing software packages.
Given that this role cuts across our global programmes, the successful candidate will required to travel overseas, sometimes to developing countries and areas of conflict, up to six times a year.
Please note that as part of MAG's commitment to safeguarding, this post is subject to background checks before an offer of employment is confirmed.
