We’re fighting for a world where diabetes can do no harm. And to do that, it’s vital that the 4.9 million people currently living with diabetes in the UK know who we are and feel a connection to our work and our cause.
That’s where our brand comes in, and as brand executive you’ll be part of a passionate team working to make sure our personality and identity shines through everything we do as a charity.
You’ll use your experience of working with brands to quickly become an expert in our personality , our tone of voice and visual identity. You’ll play a key role in training and supporting our colleagues to use our brand effectively, giving advice and feedback on a wide range of projects.
You’ll also be joining us at an exciting time. We’ve recently refreshed our brand and you’ll have an important role to play in rolling it out across the charity.
Interviews: Tuesday 18 May 2021 (TBC)
As Brand Executive you will act as a champion for our brand: you will provide support, feedback and training for colleagues across the charity to bring our personality and identity to life to drive greater awareness and emotional engagement with our cause.
You will support the senior brand manager in rolling out our refreshed brand, managing the process for updating assets and being a key point of contact across the charity.
You will provide knowledgeable and efficient day to day support to the team, responding to queries from colleagues and supporters, taking charge of our ‘self-service’ tools and budget trackers.

You’ll have a real passion for brand and enjoy helping our teams see how it can help them achieve their objectives. You’ll be a keen learner, quickly becoming an expert in our brand so you can share that knowledge right across the charity.
You’ll have excellent communication skills, both in the way you produce clear and engaging copy, and in the way you express your ideas verbally. You’ll be confident in presenting our brand to colleagues at all levels with energy and enthusiasm.

About the Company
Diabetes is the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time. There are currently more than 3.9 million people in the UK diagnosed with diabetes, and just under 1 million more with undiagnosed type 2.
We are working to make sure that those affected by diabetes get the best care and support they need to live well with their condition and avoid life-changing complications. We're leading the way by funding critical research, improving healthcare and treatment so we can reach our vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Diabetes UK staff are motivated and experienced and extremely passionate about helping people affected by diabetes. We have been fighting for people with diabetes for more than 80 years and changed millions of lives thanks to the new treatments, technology and policy changes we've been behind.
But there's more to do. And you can be part of it.
We're a diverse bunch and as a charity we recognise and respect the value of everyone.
We've recently been awarded a One Star Accreditation status by Best Companies. And this year we were named 65th in the top 100 not-for-profit organisations in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For list.
We're committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and expect all staff and volunteers to actively support this commitment.
We have a vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. If you’d like to be part of that, why not join us?
