It’s hard to believe that today 748 million people still don’t have clean, safe water and 2.5 billion live without a toilet. The resulting diseases kill one child every minute.

With social media playing an increasingly prominent role in the lives of our supporters – and potential supporters – there’s never been a more exciting or challenging time to be a social media manager.

WaterAid is looking for a temporary Social Media Manager (four months) to play a vital role in our mission to transform lives with safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest communities.

Working within the Digital Communications team, the Social Media Manager will help enhance our profile and reputation, and engage with our target audiences in meaningful, relevant ways.

You will be responsible for maintaining and increasing engagement levels across our various social media platforms, measuring success, and working collaboratively with colleagues to deliver an ongoing programme of activity that supports WaterAid’s organisational objectives. Full of great ideas, you'll be able to bring a creative spark to our social presence.

To be successful, you’ll need to have an established track record in social media marketing communications, along with excellent copywriting skills, and an appreciation of the charity sector. Most importantly, you will have an infectious enthusiasm for the power of social and its potential for WaterAid.

By 2030 we want everyone, everywhere to have clean water, sanitation and hygiene. We need you to help us make it happen. If you bring your expertise, passion and professionalism, we’ll give you a lot back.

Working with us, you will be entitled to a wide range of employee benefits, such as an exceptional pension fund, medical cash plans, an employee assistance programme, generous annual leave and Save As You Learn schemes, as well as fitness and lifestyle programmes.

Please note: in order to apply for this role you must be able to demonstrate your eligibility to work in the UK.
