The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) seeks a Chemists’ Community Fund Marketing Engagement Executive to join us on a permanent basis.
The Chemists’ Community Fund, the working name of the RSC Benevolent Fund, provides financial support for the relief and prevention of poverty, as well as advice and sign-posting to support members and their families through challenging life events; a network of volunteers provides additional local support for members in need and awareness of our services. This service is delivered through a team of specialist Caseworkers and referrals to specialist providers. Beyond relieving poverty, the Fund has scope to utilise its funds for alternative charitable needs. The Fund has seen demand for its services to RSC members increase during the pandemic and due to rises in cost of living, alongside the development of the range of services we offer to support the wider chemistry community.
The purpose of the Chemists’ Community Fund Marketing Engagement Executive role is to increase the awareness of the breadth of support available, as well as to help develop future services, in order to increase our overall impact.

You will also secure relevant information on the changing and developing needs of our community and ensure sustained awareness of the Fund amongst our members. This unique role combines marketing, engagement, insight gathering and new service development and using in-depth knowledge of each of these and insight of our community to ensure we remain relevant to their needs.
