This is an exciting and challenging role for a professional with significant experience in both marketing and communication strategy and implementation and with the drive to shape the future of Tempo’s communications.
The ideal candidate must have the ability to creatively develop and deliver innovative and effective marketing and campaign strategies. A team player, you are comfortable working on a social media account or writing copy, alongside contributing to strategic discussions and developing campaigns. You need to be organised, able to work under pressure, pro-active, a self-starter, and have a track record of achievement within a similar role.
You will drive and coordinate communications across the organisation in order to raise our profile with key audiences and support the organisational scaling strategy. You will work closely with others to develop our communications and marketing strategy and content; manage key communications channels including our website, newsletters and social media; and coordinate with network teams to generate content and quality assure communications across the organisation.
You will be able to communicate effectively about the work of Tempo, build relationships quickly and work collaboratively with a range of team members to achieve a goal. You are target driven, with the ability to stay on top of a varied and demanding workload.
You are passionate about developing communities and about creating positive, lasting societal change. This role would suit someone looking to move from corporate communications and marketing into the charity sector or someone already working in the sector and seeking a new challenge.
Tempo works to support communities to flourish through enabling more individuals and more diverse groups of people to volunteer and support their local communities.
We work in partnership with others engaged in community development, from grassroots organisations to statutory agencies.

People earning and using Tempo Time Credits report improvements in their quality of life, more social interactions, new friendships and skills, access to new opportunities, increased confidence and better physical and mental health and wellbeing. Organisations using Tempo Time Credits with their volunteer’s report that they can recruit and retain more diverse volunteers, do more with existing resources and reach more people with their services, and make new connections with other local organisations.
There’s never been a better time to get involved. We have an ambitious programme of work, full of challenges and opportunities in a fast-paced environment. COVID-19 has rekindled interest in community involvement and purpose, and we are here to help.
