As Head of Communications, you will lead on telling GIF’s story, and the stories of the entrepreneurs and innovators we support, and the beneficiaries impacted by their innovations, through social media and digital communications. You will formulate and execute proactive corporate communications strategies and press relations, and advise on social media across GIF, and create content to shine a light on the power and potential of innovation for global development.
Telling the story of GIF and our investments externally is inseparable from internal communications. You will ensure that GIF has one face and one voice and that the information we share externally is an authentic representation of how we speak internally.
GIF is powered by evidence. At the core of our communications is explaining and exploring how we measure impact, make choices on the basis of rigorous evidence and learn lessons. Thus collaborating closely with our wonky analytics team is core to your work. You need not be a data jockey yourself, but getting close to this work should excite you and you should demonstrate an aptitude for this.
You will be reporting to our Chief of Staff based in our central London office, but working closely with senior executives in the business and teams across London and Washington DC.
