Job Title: Digital Communications Officer

Location: Digbeth, Birmingham City Centre

Responsible to: Marketing Manager

Salary: £25,000 – £30,000

Hours: 36.5 hours per week. Flexible working will be required, to include evenings & weekends

This post has been created in order to deliver the ambitions of Sport England’s Active Communities Programme. Birmingham and Solihull are one of 12 Local Delivery Pilots across England that are looking at innovative ways to reduce the levels of inactivity in our most disadvantaged communities.

The postholder will be employed by The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) which is an independent community benefit society which works with some of the poorest communities in Birmingham & Solihull to improve people’s health and wellbeing through physical activity.

Its mission is to:

Use physical activity, guided by innovation, collaboration and insight, to do the collaborating and development required to create stronger and more resilient communities

The Active Wellbeing Society is a Community Benefit Society, which means that it is controlled by its membership (users, communities, partners and stakeholders) and cannot use surpluses to anything other than community benefit. All assets are “locked” for the benefit of the communities that TAWS serves. It has charitable purposes and is treated as a charity by HMRC.

The Society was developed out of the successful Wellbeing Service set up by Birmingham City Council in June 2015 and is a public service mutual. It has a track record of innovation, collaboration, citizen engagement and successful delivery, within the Council, and by going independent in 2018, TAWS was able to build on this foundation and unlock new sources of funding to support its further growth and development.
