Collect/analyse communications data, use social and digital platforms to improve engagement, help organise events and webinars, and much more at this young person-focused national body and youth charity that counts former England international and Chelsea captain Paul Elliott and Team GB table tennis Olympian Darius Knight among its supporters.

Helping us make a greater impact on the lives of young people from our Vauxhall head office, you'll take on a wide variety of responsibilities that will give you the edge in your path to a career in communications strategy - from getting to grips with databases and data collection/analysis to learning how to effectively use social and digital platforms to engage with stakeholders and improve information sharing.


As well as an aptitude for Word and Excel, knowledge of HTML and experience using content management systems, you'll need to be a strong communicator with excellent written skills, attention to detail and an interest in digital media.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Updating and maintaining information in the customer relationship database
  • Coordinate data collection and analysis for use in communications activity

  • Using social/digital platforms to improve stakeholder engagement/information sharing
  • Providing general administrative support, e.g. opening post, answering phone, filing etc.

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills - able to articulate clearly verbally and in writing to a variety of people at all levels
  • Able to use Microsoft Office programmes, in particular Word and Excel, to an excellent standard
  • Strong administrative skills and a methodical approach to handling tasks and meeting deadlines
  • Knowledge of HTML and experience using content management systems
  • Experience of Adobe Photoshop and InDesign a bonus, but we're happy to overlook these for the right person

Future prospects Ongoing employment at this or another agency or progress onto a higher level qualification.

Things to consider Please list ALL qualifications you currently hold (or are awaiting results for) accurately and comprehensively, including subject name and level as appears on certification. If - after being offered a position - you are found to have deliberately omitted or inaccurately listed qualifications that make you ineligible for the apprenticeship (e.g. previous training in the same modules) you will be in breach of your contract with Creative Pioneers London and we reserve the right to either readvertise the role or offer to an alternative candidate. If you hold a degree level qualification in most cases this will make you ineligible for apprenticeship funding and your application may not be successful. If you are unclear on your eligibility please call the office for guidance 0208 691 6729.
