Digital Communications Officer

Islington Giving

Salary £26,080 - £29,049 pro rata

Application deadline 6 June 2019

Islington is a place of vibrancy and opportunity, but one in every three children here live in poverty. And we have one of the worst depression rates of any London borough.


We are looking for someone to help tell these stories, generate more support, and communicate why everyone living and working in Islington should get involved in tackling poverty and inequality.

This is a great opportunity to develop your career in charity communications and would be suitable for someone with flexible-working needs (perhaps returning to work), or someone at an earlier stage of their career who would like to make use of their excellent digital marketing skills to make a difference locally.

Chair of trustees

Blagrave Trust

Salary The role of Chair is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses for travel may be claimed

Application deadline 16 June 2019

Due to the planned departure of our current Chair later this year, we are looking for a new Chair who is totally committed to and actively supports our core ambitions. 

The Trust has been through a significant period of change since 2013, with the most recent decision to move towards becoming a youth-led rather than youth-focused funder. We are therefore recruiting young trustees to our Board, as well as a dynamic new Chair to take our governance forward into this next phase.

We are open to applications from younger candidates and for those for whom this would be a first time Chair role providing they have relevant previous experience serving in a trustee capacity.
