We are working in partnership with British Wireless for the Blind Fund, who since 1928 have been providing radios to visually impaired people. For people with sight loss, life becomes a challenge; not just the difficulty of getting out and about, but also the everyday tasks that we take for granted - like turning on the radio in the morning to listen to the news. By providing equipment on a free loan to those who are unable to afford a specially adapted radio, they help improve the daily lives of visually impaired people.

They are seeking a Sales and Marketing Manager, to work closely with the CEO and Deputy CEO, and provide editorial, strategic, creative, and operational support across BWBF’s work. The postholder will play a key role in ensuring communications are both influential and informative for a full range of stakeholders, as well as maximising revenue through the sale of adapted, made for purpose and other suitable audio equipment and accessories. Sourcing and managing new trade partners is also expected, as well as working collaboratively with the tech and fundraising teams.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • Experience of planning and implementing campaigns, both print and digital, including regional awareness raising and fundraising campaigns.

  • Experience of planning, implementing, and monitoring all internal and external communications.

  • Experience developing and implementing strategy to maximise sales activities to a range of outlets, as well as achieving budgets for BWBF Direct sales.

  • Experience working with a range of stakeholders, and securing buy in.

We are seeking an enterprising, creative and goal-orientated individual, with a 'can-do', team player attitude. Well-developed people skills, which engage stakeholders and a diverse team of staff and volunteers, is essential.
