Salary: £47,000 - £50,000 pa

Hours: 35 per week


At Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice we believe that every person facing death should have the best quality of life possible, experience dignity, peace and comfort and be supported to make the choices that are right for them. We are dedicated to providing free, high quality, compassionate care and support for adults with terminal illnesses, their families, and their professional carers in the London Boroughs of Royal Greenwich and Bexley. At any one time we are caring for around 750 people and in total we care for around 3,000 people each year in the community; in their homes, care homes, in our hospice beds and hospice-based clinics, in the local prisons and in hospital. We are a prominent and respected charity at the heart of the local community.


This is a hugely exciting time to join our team as we embark on a new organisational strategy and digital transformation for the hospice.  The Head of Communications and Marketing will play a key role in leading on developing and implementing an effective communications and engagement strategy to raise the profile of our hospice, strengthen its leadership position in our health and care system and help us expand into new areas so the hospice is able to achieve its ambitious vision.

We are looking for someone with broad knowledge and skills, with an appetite to be bold and embrace innovative communications and marketing techniques. We are particularly seeking expertise to lead the development of a comprehensive and ambitious marcomms strategy, embedding digital practice across all areas, increasing our brand awareness, and growing external relations. This role will be pivotal in supporting our proactive engagement with the local community, key stakeholders and health professionals, as well as building our profile locally and nationally as a leader in palliative care.

You will take our communications and marketing to a new level – building on our foundations and looking ahead to the ways that our service users, supporters, and the general public, will want to interact with services and charities in the future.

Above all, you will thrive in a values-driven environment where you can use your interpersonal and relationship building skills to engage others in driving forward plans with energy and credibility.
