Digital media Assistant VACANCY

Would you like to join our team? We currently have a vacancy for a Digital Media Assistant to join us on a short term contract.

About the role:

Dementia Oxfordshire provides support for people living with dementia from the point of diagnosis until either end of life or a move away from independent living to residential care.

The DMA will develop Dementia Oxfordshire’s digital presence via our website, Facebook, and other social media. In particular the role will focus on strengthening the website to move it from a platform that provides factual information to one that demonstrates empathy with service users and develops a connection with the audience via user stories and two-way dialogue.

The DMA will work under the direction of the Head of Service and be supported by Age UK Oxfordshire’s Communications Manager. The DMA will develop the scope and content of our website to make it to the go to platform for guidance and self-help advice for people with dementia and their carers in Oxfordshire and elsewhere. The DMA will also help develop other social media platforms to promote our service and drive an audience to our website.

The DMA will support the service awareness and fundraising group to promote their activities and expand the quality and reach of our monthly email newsletter.
