Director of Strategic Communications and Brand

Job reference: REQ000318


Woking, Surrey GU21 4LL

It is not every day you have the opportunity to use your experience of integrated marketing and communications strategy to save the world. But that is the exciting opportunity we can offer you at WWF UK, one of the world’s iconic brands.

With nature in free fall and climate change accelerating, we are working on solutions to huge challenges and delivering projects that will restore and conserve our natural world.

The planet needs your talent to ensure our voice is the most respected and reliable and inspires the support we need to fund and influence systemic change.

As Director of Strategic Communications and Brand, you will join our senior leadership team and head the unit responsible for the planning of our external affairs and brand and for driving communications impact.

You will lead integrated communication strategy and communications planning for the organisation. You will also take responsibility for our brand and its development. You will drive high awareness and engagement with the brand too. Will look to you to build a high performing team, oversee relationships with external agencies, encourage innovation and bold approaches as well as collaborate with senior level colleagues to ensure communications activity is on strategy, efficient and effective. Important will be the ability to evaluate performance and work with the insight team to inform future strategy development and execution. 

For this high impact role, you must have significant expertise in running integrated marketing, brand and communications strategies as well as campaign delivery. You will have experience of communications planning, prioritisation and evaluation in a complex organisation too.  Effective at building stakeholder relationships, you will be a strategic thinker who is comfortable controlling multiple projects, managing budgets and delivering to tight timeframes. Results focussed, you will excel at developing and motivating high performing teams too. Critically you will have a passion for our earth and our mission to save it.

If you have the ideas, energy and skills to help achieve our ambitious strategy to grow support over the next three years to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges, we would love to hear from you.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you.  Here at WWF, we are committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose.  We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We are looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
