About this role

The Communications and Fundraising Officer is a new role at Pembroke House. You will be responsible for supporting and driving the charity’s communications and fundraising function to effectively reach and engage local groups, partners, residents and donors; to amplify our projects in the neighbourhood; and meet fundraising goals.

Pembroke House isn’t looking to broadcast messages to marketing segments, we’re building alliances, provoking engagement and inspiring action in our neighbourhood, the borough and country.

The charity has a long-term partnership with Small Axe: a not-for-profit campaigning organisation. They play the role of “Virtual Head of Comms”. The successful applicant will be supported and trained by Small Axe to apply innovative national campaigning and organising tools to build alliances and start conversations in our neighbourhood.

Person description

The person we appoint to this role will have a passion for using multiple communication tools and platforms to engage people in the work of Pembroke House. You will be able to develop narratives that allow us to speak about our work in different contexts, while maintaining the space for our work to grow and develop.

You will have a catchy enthusiasm and can do attitude, that allows you to think outside the box and try new things. You will be open to learning and growing as part of a team. You will be well organised and able to manage competing demands on your time, and be confident working unsupervised.

You will enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, engaging with different communities, from faith leaders to local parents, sensitively and with respect. Pembroke House shares a building with St. Christopher's Church

About Pembroke House

Pembroke House is a centre for social action and residential community in Walworth, south-east London. We were founded in 1885, by students from Pembroke College, Cambridge, as one of the first settlement houses. Shocked by growing poverty and inequality, the pioneers of the settlement movement sought a new approach: taking up residence to live, work and solve problems alongside local communities. The solutions they developed have had a profound impact, including inspiring the architects of the modern welfare state.

Pembroke House is one of the only settlements to retain its founding elements: residency, halls for community activities and chapel (now the separate Parish Church of St Christopher’s, Walworth that shares our building). For over 130 years, we’ve been working to bridge traditional divides and unite people – whatever their background or walk of life – in building a better Walworth.
