Findacure is recruiting a Marketing and Engagement Manager to help us raise awareness about the organisation and our projects.

We’re looking for someone who is proactive and has experience in marketing and communications to join our small, hardworking team (normally) based just a few minutes’ walk from Cambridge train station. This is an exciting opportunity to shape the way Findacure talks about itself and engages with the world in the years to come.


Job Title: Marketing and Engagement Manager

Location: Currently working from home, but with an intention to be based primarily in Findacure’s Office in Cambridge when circumstances allow.

Responsible to: Head of Operations

Hours: Part-time (30 hours per week minimum) or Full-time (37.5 hours per week)

Salary: £24,000 to £27,000 pro rata (dependent on experience)


The continued growth of Findacure as an organisation depends upon successfully reaching more beneficiaries and supporters. You will be responsible for building Findacure’s profile both with our beneficiaries and the wider life sciences community and increasing their engagement with us. This role is ideal for someone possessing marketing or communications experience, enabling them to demonstrate their ability to develop and implement a unified strategy for a small but driven organisation.

You will deliver our day-to-day communications, running our social media, coordinating our promotional campaigns, and maintaining our online presence. You will develop new digital media to share online, and support in the production of print materials to promote our work. As you grow in the role, you will support the CEO as Findacure’s spokesperson, both by speaking at internal and external events, and increasing our engagement with traditional media.

You will be expected to be an excellent storyteller with drive and curiosity, trusted to tell the personal stories of rare disease patients and strengthen the charity’s brand. You will be well organised, able to work in a sensitive and confidential manner, self-motivated, and an excellent team player who contributes to all aspects of Findacure.
