Are you a creative, driven and collaborative individual with a proven track record of developing and delivering successful communications strategies? Are you looking for an exciting and highly rewarding new career opportunity? If so, Nesta is looking for a Campaigns Manager to plan, develop and deliver communications in support of our three innovation missions.
We are Nesta. The UK’s innovation agency for social good. We design, test and scale new solutions to society’s biggest problems, changing millions of lives for the better. We confront challenges that affect millions of people, from chronic childhood inequality to ill-health and the climate crisis.
We believe that innovation is more possible now than ever before. We see opportunities to mobilise citizens and influence behaviour. A wealth of private and public capital that can be used more creatively. Pools of data to mine. And so we draw on these rich resources by bringing together multidisciplinary teams: data scientists, designers and behavioural scientists, practitioners at the frontline, academics; and people with lived experience.
Together, we design, test and scale new solutions to society’s biggest problems. We partner with frontline organisations, build new businesses and work to change whole systems. Harnessing the rigour of science and the creativity of design, we work relentlessly to put ideas to the test.
You’ll focus on leading the development of strategic communications plans to support our missions, drawing on the full communications mix and delivering the full range of communications tactics. This will include using media, PR, marketing, public affairs, events, stakeholder relations and content creation, and working collaboratively with Nesta colleagues.
As well as proven experience of driving successful communications campaigns, you'll be an exceptional communicator, who can think quickly, digest large amounts of information and consult and advise effectively on options and tactics. You'll have outstanding communications skills, with a track record of writing and editing content for a range of audiences, while also being a creative thinker, able to develop and manage innovative, effective and integrated campaigns.
