Help change lives through music!

A wonderful opportunity to join a groundbreaking charity at an exciting time. Playlist for Life is expanding to deliver ambitious plans for growth over the next three years.

  • Are you a skilled and experienced Communications expert?
  • Are you looking for a chance to use your skills and experience in a different way?
  • Would you like to revolutionise the way people for dementia are looked after by making music a standard part of care?

This new post will develop and implement a vibrant, interactive communications strategy to raise awareness of the power of personal music and support the growth of our grassroots network across the UK. Reporting direct to the CEO, the postholder will be a senior member of the existing staff team and will have the opportunity to grow the Comms team further.

You must be as comfortable speaking to a volunteer in a local community centre as you are speaking to a senior executive in the music industry or BBC - and you need to see the role both those people could play in delivering Playlist for Life’s vision and communication strategy.

You will be able to demonstrate substantial experience in communications and campaign planning; exceptional written and verbal communication skills for different audiences; and the ability to lead a team to deliver a communications plan across media channels for the short, medium and long-term.

Call 0141 404 0683 to speak to our Chief Executive, Sarah Metcalfe, further about the role.
