Meet the Marketing and Engagement Team
Our Marketing and Engagement team connect with more than 750,000 followers on our social media platforms and reach around 2 million people every single week. They craft campaigns that connect and work with influencers in the worlds of media, entertainment and politics. They are the top of their game, in the Third Sector and beyond.
Roles are as varied as customer service, audience research and digital analytics to social media, PR, public affairs, science communication and design. All different, but all working together to inspire support for our cause. Because heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 people in the UK, and that’s something that at the British Heart Foundation, we refuse to accept.
Dani is a Digital Marketing Manager at the BHF. She explains what her role involves and why she enjoys working for us.
What do you love most about your role?
No two days are the same. Sometimes I can be really hands-on looking at the optimisation of a campaign or training team members. But I also get to work on more top level planning such as content marketing frameworks, or meet with big-hitters such as Google and Facebook to discuss opportunities for the BHF. I also work with a very talented team and I enjoy supporting their development.
What do you love most about the BHF?
The culture. The BHF isn’t so large you feel overwhelmed by the number of people but it’s not so small that you fight to get projects off the ground. Work/life balance is encouraged, there’s carol singing at the Christmas party, yoga at lunch time and a softball team. We also have some fantastic content to work with, the real life case studies are so inspiring and make you realise what it’s all for.
How would you sum up what it’s like to work at the BHF?
Inspiring, nurturing and fast-paced.
