We’re looking for someone to fill our new and exciting role of Digital Projects Officer at M4RD.
The role will involve supporting the CEO (and wider M4RD team) in the development and delivery of digital projects.
The vast majority of engagement with our target audience happens online via multi-format education such as webinars, e-learning, online forums, podcast, social media content. This role requires someone who is digitally savvy, creative and is driven by the wish to raise up the voices of people in challenging situations.
You will also have the opportunity to lead your own projects.
What qualities are we looking for in our Digital Projects Officer?
This role is suitable for an individual with some experience of the rare disease world who has the understanding and experience of the skills needed to meet the needs of a small but ambitious charity.
You will have proven experience in project management. Experience in the areas of rare disease or health is desirable. You will also be able to work well independently and within a team.
Key areas of day-to-day responsibility and oversight will include but not be limited to:
- Planning and preparation for projects
- Managing workflow of 2 or 3 projects at one time
- Working smoothly alongside the staff and trustees team
- Collaborating with external organisations and stakeholders
- Supporting the CEO with project work
- Delivering projects on time
- Arranging and assisting at events (usually remotely)
Examples of projects:
M4RD exists to provide education and practical tools targeted at medical professionals, enabling them to reduce the diagnostic odyssey and improve the patient experience.
The charity is small and consists of a friendly group of staff and Trustees. The work can be intense but rewarding as the charity responds to the needs of the rare disease political landscape. Within reason we try to be flexible in order to make the most out of your skills and time. If you like project management, being organised and working at a fast pace on something fun then please do apply.
