About this role

About us

The King's Fund is an independent charitable organisation working to improve health and care in England. We have a high profile, strong reputation and excellent track record in influencing health and care policy, providing leadership development and hosting high quality events.

Your role

Our five-year strategy commits us to new strategic priorities and an ambitious programme of internal change. You will play a key role in implementing the strategy by helping to generate the income we need and positioning us with the audiences we need to reach. This is an opportunity for someone with ambition, vision and energy to deliver a step change in our marketing.

We are looking for a senior marketing professional with extensive experience of B2B marketing and a track record of developing high impact marketing campaigns across a range of channels. You will bring an excellent understanding of how to leverage brand and organisational positioning to engage audiences and generate income.

Crucially, you will be able to develop an inspiring vision for marketing at the Fund and provide dynamic leadership to implement it. Located in the Communications Directorate, which has a reputation for producing high impact content and delivering effective communications, you will need to work with colleagues across the organisation to ensure a strategic and co-ordinated approach to promoting our products and services.

The King’s Fund is strongly committed to becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. We actively encourage applicants from under-represented groups, including people from Black and ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities and from the LGBT+ community.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you may initially need to work remotely. Once our premises in London fully reopen, you will be expected to spend some of your time working in the office.

How to apply

Here at the Fund, we actively encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds, including those from the LGBT+ community, people with disabilities and those who have caring responsibilities. We want people to bring their unique blend of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and knowledge as we recognise that diversity makes us stronger. If you are successful, you’ll be joining an organisation committed to improvement and progress with a wide-ranging and active diversity and inclusion programme which includes reverse mentoring, research on race inequalities in the NHS and participation in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
