We’re Hiring: Communications Officer

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation UK Branch is seeking a Communications Officer to join its grant-making team based in London.

13 jul 2023

The Communications Officer will work with colleagues in the UK and Portugal to help deliver our communications and partnership activities, with a focus on our ‘Climate and Ocean’ grant-making programme.

What you’ll work on:

In this role you will get to contribute to a variety of projects related to climate, ocean, and culture. You will be supported by a line manager in London, working closely with our diverse, friendly team in the UK and with colleagues in our Head Office in Portugal.

This is an exciting time to join our team. In 2023 we embarked on the Foundation’s new strategy, focused on Sustainability and Equity. The UK Branch works with civil society organisations in the UK and beyond to deliver on this strategy, aiming to increase public engagement with ocean-climate action and support equitable access to culture. We convene events, produce new evidence and support activities that help us deliver on these ambitious goals.

What we’re looking for:

We’re looking for someone with great collaboration, communication, and project management skills. This is an ideal position for someone with around two years of relevant experience in communications, civil society, philanthropy, partnership building and/or relevant sectors that the UK Branch works within (e.g., climate and culture), gained through any route. There will be lots of on-the-job and training opportunities for the candidate to learn and develop professionally.  A Portuguese speaker would be an advantage. Please note that all candidates must be eligible to work in the UK.
