Network and Communications Manager
Salary Range: £33,000 pro rata

Do you want to improve the world for people who have been socially disadvantaged? Do you believe people with lived experience should be at the heart of this change?
Historically, the voices of people with lived experience of social disadvantages have not been routinely included in decisions made about them; specifically decisions about policies and services made at both the national and local level.
Recently, some organisations and services have been working to ensure peoples voices are heard, empowering them to constructively engage with decision makers and make a difference to our world.
Expert Link is one of these organisations. We are a small, growing charity with a wide, national reach. Through our work we empower people with lived experience of social disadvantage to engage with national and local decision makers and charities on areas such as housing, homelessness and social security policy. We provide opportunities for people to communicate with each other, sharing opportunities and wisdom with a purpose to make positive social change.
The growth of our organisation has provided Expert Link with the resources to recruit a Network and Communications Manager to improve and increase the opportunities for people with lived experience to engage in our work, and amplify their voices in national and local policy decision making.
The right person for this role will be creative around communication, passionate about people, and committed to changing our world. As a member of the Expert Link team, you will be committed to the purpose and values of Expert Link, and encourage and support creativity, autonomy and working together.
It is critical to the success of Expert Link that we are an inclusive organisation where everybody has the opportunity to have their voice heard. We encourage applications from across the full spectrum of the lived experience community, including experience of homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse, offending and domestic violence and abuse.
