About This Job

ACCT UK launched its new name and brand in 2021 and we are now seeking a highly motivated Marketing Manager for maternity cover to continue the delivery of our engagement programme. We are looking for you to bring enthusiasm, personal credibility, discretion and sensitivity in promoting the charity to its beneficiaries and a wide range of stakeholder groups.

As ACCT UK’s Marketing Manager, you will be key to helping the wider community to understand our charity and how it is distinct from the Army Cadets, a youth organisation we are closely linked to.

This is a rewarding and flexible role. The position is a fixed term maternity cover full time post (13 months, 40 hours per week) which can be either home or office based. The successful applicant will be required to travel occasionally. The full time starting annual salary for this post is £31,611.25. Applications for part time or job share will also be considered.

Our charity

ACCT UK is a national youth charity dedicated to improving the life chances of young people. We want to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to learn new skills, build confidence and be inspired through their Army Cadet experience. We want to develop the youth leadership and training abilities of adult volunteers in the Army Cadets.

Working alongside our strategic partner, the British Army, we help young people to access cadet activity with the Army Cadets through a range of activities including fundraising, grant making, developing new resources and direct support to the Army Cadets.

We strongly believe that everyone benefits when you help young people to develop their character and values through activities that stretch and challenge them. We also know that when young people engage with others at a range of levels in their communities it builds confidence and improves empathy for other’s lives.

Who we are

You will enjoy being part of our small, friendly team who work very happily together. By joining ACCT UK you will help us to reach more young people and make a greater difference and we look forward to working with you. We actively promote learning and encourage you to explore ideas that improve all aspects of the charity’s work in pursuit of its charitable aims.

What we can offer you

In addition to your salary we offer all staff:

  • Flexible working arrangements (you agree a working pattern with your line manager).
  • The ability to work both from home and from our London office.
  • Personal Accident Insurance, including loss of earnings cover and death benefit.
  • 15 days of sick pay in any 12-month period (after 12 months employment - pro-rata for part time staff).
  • A contributory pension scheme (you contribute at least 5% and we will contribute 10%).
  • 20 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays (pro-rata for part time staff).
  • Additional privilege leave on set days each year, such as between Christmas and New Year (pro-rata for part time staff).
  • An additional five days of volunteering leave (pro-rata for part time staff).
  • Access to Care Firsts employee assistance programme.
  • Support for qualifications and personal development.
  • Reimbursement of the cost of a Railcard subject to eligibility.
  • Season ticket loan.
  • A caring and supportive team environment.
