As the only organisation in the UK that provides organs, tissue and blood products, the work of NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) employees has never been more crucial. Quite simply, these incredible people are saving and improving lives every day with their ground-breaking work.

Based in Basildon, this exciting new role will see you developing the NHSBT brand and campaigns (Save a Life. Give Blood & YesIdonate Organ Donation), including our creative and publishing services and resources. From advertising to publications, films to photography, you will ensure the brand is consistent and best represents the NHSBT message. Specifically, you will be working on interesting projects such as modernising blood donor sessions and changing behaviour to organ donation. Ensuring that everything that leaves the studio meets your high standards, you will oversee the works of the Brand and Publishing team, and you will also procure and build relationships with strategic marketing production suppliers. Tasked with delivering brand publishing services, you will also take overall responsibility for an external distribution hub providing assets to volunteers and ambassadors willing to promote donation in their local areas. Offering clear leadership to your team, your expert brand knowledge will prove crucial to colleagues across the organisation and to external agencies who are working under your guidance.

You will manage a creative budget so you will have clear business and financial acumen gained in a specialist design and production role. With solid leadership capabilities, you will have good online and offline skills and you will be knowledgeable in commissioning copy, specialist design and creative work, print and photography. With an understanding of relevant legislation such as Data Protection, your ability to convey specialist advice and work succinctly with other communications professionals will produce high quality results time and time again. You will also have hands-on experience of managing brand assets and if you have a relevant professional qualification or a Masters level degree, that would be an added bonus.

This high-level role comes at an exciting time for us in which we are delivering more work in-house and developing our creative team. Working with an enthusiastic group of people across the UK you can expect a variety of fascinating projects that have the scope to directly impact on people considering becoming donors. And while job satisfaction is a top priority, we want you to have a good work/life balance too – so you’ll enjoy 27 days of leave every year, plus 8 bank holidays and access to the NHS Pension Scheme. With all the training and support you could possibly need to pursue your professional ambitions, we’ll see to it that you continue to flourish in this thrilling position.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) offers a dynamic and friendly working environment where teamwork is highly valued. Personal development is also considered a priority and is supported through extensive training and development opportunities open to all employees.

Together we'll save and improve more lives than ever
