About the Film and TV Charity
The Film and TV Charity is seeking an innovative, dynamic, and solutions-driven Digital Marketing Manager to join a team that is radically reimagining the way they support people working behind the scenes in film, TV and cinema.
The film, TV and cinema sector is a jewel in the UK’s crown, both in terms of our exceptional creative talent and the sector’s growing economic importance, but a culture of long hours, challenging conditions, and an acceptance of a long-held status quo also mean it can be an incredibly tough sector to work in, with the retention of talent an ongoing problem as a result.
In 2019, research commissioned by the charity found that 9 in 10 working behind the scenes had experienced poor mental health. The pandemic has only served to exacerbate the problem, while the harrowing conversations that followed the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 have further highlighted the systemic nature of discrimination.
Since the introduction of the Film and TV Support Line in 2018, the charity has been on an exciting journey of change and has joined industry partners at the forefront of the movement to make work better for everyone in the industry. The charity is providing, and continuing to develop, mental health and wellbeing support, financial support and advice, and a host of practical resources that are making a difference to thousands of people every year, but its ambitions are necessarily bolder.
The Digital Marketing Manager is responsible for driving digital presence, and for positioning the charity at the heart of a film, TV and cinema industry community so that when people need their help or want to support their work, they know exactly where to turn. Working closely with the Head of Marketing and Communication they will on lead integrated digital marketing campaigns from concept to execution and will be the go-to digital marketing expert within the charity. In order to achieve growth in the charity’s digital footprint and overall brand awareness, they will focus on the implementation, tracking, and optimisation of digital marketing campaigns across all digital channels, while also balancing user experience with the strategic objectives of the charity. This position will also work closely with the Digital Delivery Manager to champion an end-to-end digital approach, as the charity pivots to a greater focus on digital delivery.
The role would suit a strategic thinker who can translate insight, knowledge and analysis to plans. As well as being an exceptional communicator with confident analytic, writing and presenting skills, the ideal candidate will also need the ability to adapt and optimise campaigns based on insights and data. Understanding of how the film and/or television industry works is preferable, and a real desire to be part of a team that is passionate about making a difference is crucial.
The charity recognises that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in the film and TV industry and in the third sector and is committed to doing what it can to correct this. Therefore, we are especially keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; those who identify as LGBTQIA; people with a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
