Vacancy for:

Senior Media and PR officer, charity

Healthcare PR and Comms - Salary: Competitive salary plus benefits

Permanent Job - In house - Full time - London

My client, a high profile charity, is looking for a Senior Media and PR Officer to join its busy comms team. This is a rare and wonderful opportunity to join a renowned charity that is excelling in the work it does. The role supports the delivery of the charity's Media and PR strategy and disseminates fundraising, policy/research, campaigning information and news within national target media. It is a healthcare charity but healthcare experience is not necessary however, media relations expertise is.

On a day to day basis you will:

Identify and engage with key media contacts

Identify stories for use in the media (national or regional)

Increase awareness of policy & public affairs

Support the dissemination of key media messages, as appropriate

Provide ad-hoc support to PR activity as necessary

Be the PR lead for individual corporate partnerships as required

There is also scope to support the digital and social media teams in driving digital innovation and integrated digital communications campaigns, alongside supporting the Policy and Public Affairs team.

The ideal candidate for this role will have excellent writing skills, strong expertise in media relations, some understanding of the healthcare sector (but this is not vital), and highly competent networking and stakeholder engagement skills.

If you are interested in making the move from agency into a well-known and well respected charity, or if you want to take the next step in your charity comms career then please get in touch.
