Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with Kinship, the leading kinship care charity in England and Wales.
Kinship works to inform, support and empower kinship carers, providing tailored support (both in home and community settings), and connecting carers via their national community and local support groups. They also support professionals to understand kinship families and improve support for them, and research and campaign for continued systemic change.
At an exciting time of growth, Kinship is now looking to appoint an experienced Content and Engagement Manager to support in the delivery and national scaling up of a new Peer-to-Peer Support Service. It will be your job to create user led content ensuring everyone understands what the service is and how they can get involved.
Funded by the Department for Education, the Peer-to-Peer Support Service is a new £1 million national initiative, delivering peer support groups for kinship carers through face to face and digital channels across England.
This is a game changing service for kinship carers and builds on Kinship's 10 years' experience of developing peer support groups, as well as a successful pilot of a regional support group network model in the North East. There are strong digital ambitions across the organisation and this is a key position to bring those to life. Reporting to the Associate Director of Peer Support you will play a pivotal role in creating fantastic user led content which is co-designed by kinship carers, colleagues and local authorities.
You will take editorial ownership for content on the new microsite and e-Learning platform and work closely with the Digital Project Manager to creatively enhance them with film, imagery and podcasts. You will play a critical role in ensuring accessibility and that the tone and voice reflects the audiences which Kinship serves, notably kinship carers and also working collaboratively with local authorities. Other outputs include the development of toolkits and a monthly e-newsletter, all conducted within an engaging and collaborative way of content development.
This is a unique opportunity for a creative, curious and collaborative content and engagement specialist to drive high levels of interest and interaction with this transformational support service.
To apply for this role, you will have a proven track record of producing authentic and impactful content for a range of audiences and platforms. With a 'sustainability' mindset you will see the bigger picture and longer-term potential of your work alongside a passion for trying new things to amplify the voices of kinship carers you will represent.
As a specialist Recruitment Practice, Prospectus is committed to building inclusive and diverse organisations, and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Please note, this role is initially offered as a 12-month fixed term contract (likelihood of extension, dependent on funding). Please, only apply if you are available asap, or have no more than a one month notice period.
First stage interviews to take place - week commencing 13th December.
