We’re looking for an exceptional and experienced communicator, with strong experience of delivering communication strategies at a senior level, to join us as External Communications Manager to develop and build strong local community partnerships and support.

About the Service
St Petrock’s is a small local charity working to address the problems caused by homelessness in Exeter and the surrounding area. Through our Homeless Resource Centre in Cathedral Yard and via our housing services in the community, we provide a range of emergency, support and prevention services to help people re-build their lives and make the transition to independent living. Our range of projects work to minimize the time anyone has to sleep rough by helping people into suitable affordable accommodation as quickly as possible.  We also help to break cycles that lead to repeated episodes of homelessness through supporting people with their health, financial and other support needs as well as helping to prevent people from becoming homeless in the first place. Help at this stage often results in people getting their life back on track and avoiding homelessness.

About the Role
We’re looking for an experienced communicator to work closely with the project manager to develop and build strong local community partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders including community groups, media and collaborative agencies.  You will be responsible for devising and implementing high quality, effective and engaging communication strategies to cement our reputation and continue to develop local support for Exeter’s charity for people who are homeless.  More than anything you’ll be an energetic team player who enjoys working as part of a committed team, intent on improving the lives of those who are homeless.
