Job Introduction

With more people engaging with our charity than ever before, we have a huge opportunity to make sure all our beneficiaries and supporters (our customers) receive the right support, services, information and products from us, at the right time and in the right way. By understanding the needs of our audiences better, and planning coordinated engagement strategies, we want to build deeper and more long-term relationships that add value to the lives of people affected by diabetes, and harness the opportunity to drive the financial support needed to continue our critical work.

That’s why we’re looking for a brilliant and inspiring Senior Customer Engagement Manager who can lead the change needed to move our whole charity to an audience first approach to engagement that helps us build a stronger and more engaged community.
