Home-Start is a federated network of local charities which provide home and community based support for families and children. Over the past four decades Home-Start has supported over a million children and has become one of the leading family support charities across the UK.

As part of our new strategic plan we are seeking to develop and launch a new intranet early 2019, to drive communications, collaboration and interaction across a network of 220 local Home-Starts and 4,000 plus local staff and trustees.

To do this we are now seeking an Intranet Manager to lead the project team and develop and oversee a successful launch and engagement strategy using the Interact software platform. Working with the Deputy Chief Executive and the intranet project team, you will have oversight of the technology, testing and launch with responsibility for the overall visual design, site navigation, site content, engagement and training of users. You will therefore need to have significant experience in digital and intranet communication channels and strong people management skills in order to oversee the wider community of site owners and publishers. Good influencing and communication skills with key stakeholders and an excellent knowledge of digital technology and good practice in relation to online, intranet and internal communications are therefore essential.

This post can be based at our Home-Start UK office in Leicester or home-based (with at least one day per week at the Leicester office). We would also be happy to consider applications from freelance consultants.

This is an exciting time to be joining Home-Start. The Intranet Manager will play a vital role in the build and launch of our new intranet and this role offers the successful candidate a great opportunity to deliver a key project. If this sounds like your type of challenge we would be pleased to hear from you.
