Day-Mer was set up on 11 November 1989 to work with and on behalf of Turkish and Kurdish people living and working in London to help them solve their problems and promote their cultural, economic, social and democratic rights; to strengthen solidarity among themselves as well as local people.

The Role

  • This role involves providing support to a charity providing a range of services to the Turkish, Kurdish and Turkish Cypriot community to maintain, manage and develop its communications with this target group.
  • You will work closely with the staff and management team to ensure communications are influential, informative
    and engaging for the full range of our stakeholders.
  • You will contribute to the management and upkeep of Day-Mer ICT systems including maintaining its emails contacts database and will provide digital, editorial, creative and operational support across the charity’s work.
  • The role will be a combination of face-to-face and virtual working; this will be discussed during the interview stage.
