Assistant Marketing & Communications Officer

This role is funded by the Government's Kickstart scheme, so is only open to people aged 16-24 that are Universal Credit. Applicants must ask to be referred to the role by their Job Centre work-coach before applying. Only applicants that cite a valid DWP Kickstart referral number in their application will be selected for interview.

Trees for Cities is an independent charity that engages local people to plant and protect trees in towns and cities worldwide. We are the only charity working internationally to improve lives by planting urban trees. We cultivate lasting change in urban neighbourhoods and revitalise forgotten spaces, creating healthy, leafy, liveable cities. In recognition of our impact, Trees for Cities is the first environmental organisation to have been awarded a social value management certificate in the UK.

We seek an Assistant Marketing & Communications Officer who will support Trees for Cities’ broader Marketing & Communication team in its day-to-day operations. It is a brilliant entry-level role for someone looking to learn more about the environmental sector and join our small but vibrant Marketing and Communication team. You will help us deliver their objectives to enable and inspire more people to plant, protect and promote urban trees.

The person we are looking for is someone who is eager to support the environmental movement. Knowledge about trees and woodlands again is desirable but not essential. We value your curiosity and desire to know more about these areas so that we can harness your enthusiasm in our work programme. Again, you will gain valuable knowledge in this area if you are a successful candidate.

While the opportunity is a support role at its heart, requiring a certain amount of administration and processing tasks, there will be many opportunities to get stuck-in on creative assignments too and to help to deliver our Generation Tree strategy by working directly with young people to create a new movement in urban tree planting.

This is a part-time position based in Kennington, London SE11.
