Could your communication skills change the lives of disabled people?

AbilityNet is the leading UK charity for computing and disability, supported by some of the biggest names in IT. Now in our 21st year we have a range of free and paid for services that help disabled people achieve their goals at home, at work, in education and on the web. We also run a number of acclaimed events, including our Tech4Good Awards, TechShare Pro and IT Volunteer Conference.

Our marketing and communications team is responsible for raising awareness of what we do across an incredibly diverse range of audiences. We work together on a rolling programme of campaigns built around blog posts, advertising, webinars, social media, PR, our website and many other channels, sharing knowledge and promoting our paid for services.

You'll be a specialist with lots of relevant experience of working on digital campaigns, with copywriting and creative skills that can take our work to a new level:

Ideally we'd like to find someone with a personal experience of the power of tech to transform lives of disabled people.

You will be part of a small friendly team that works with colleagues from across the organisation. You'll have the flexibility of working from home, with regular meetings in Brighton and London, as well as occasional travel to our other offices and other events.
