MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

The British Equestrian Federation is looking to recruit a Marketing and Communications Officer.

You will play a key role in our team as we look to tell the stories and celebrate the achievements of the millions of riders who take part in equestrianism – from our hugely successful Olympic and Paralympic teams to the pony clubs run by dedicated volunteers. You will have extensive knowledge of equestrian sport and experience in the equestrian industry. You will also have demonstrable experience in digital and social media as well as CMS systems and managing website content. You will share our passion to communicate the myriad stories in this sport with a wider audience.

The BEF is the National Governing Body for Equestrianism in the UK, affiliated to the FEI and supported by UK Sport and Sport England. The organisation has 19 Member Bodies reflecting the interests of a very broad spectrum of equestrian sports and activities, ranging from Olympic and Paralympic competition, to equine welfare, trade and recreational riding. Equestrianism has huge public appeal within an extensive competitive and recreational landscape. Some 2.7 m people in the UK ride each year supported by a strong core of enthusiasts, spectators and volunteers, and creating a substantial market with major economic and social benefits. Equestrianism is a gender and age-neutral activity, enabling it to play a key role in creating a more active nation.

Reporting to the Head of Communications, the successful candidate will be responsible for:

  • assisting the Head of Communications and the wider team in the coordination of the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) marketing and communications strategies; and
  • delivering the BEF’s digital and social media  projects.

The BEF positively seeks to achieve diversity in its workforce and applications from all candidates regardless of age, race, gender, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or nationality are welcomed and encouraged.
