Reporting to the Press and External Affairs Manager, as Press Officer, you will play a key role within a dynamic Communications Team, protecting and promoting the association’s reputation by managing reactive media enquiries and producing high quality proactive media releases.
As Press Officer, you’ll be working across business areas from charitable foundation to fire safety, right through to highly topical issues relating to the housing market. Experience of translating complex policy and technical language into plain English to help maximise public and political impact is essential.
Your organisational skills will help to maintain an effective press office and you’ll have lead responsibility for key areas of the business.
No two days are ever the same therefore you’ll be self-starter and able to work under your own initiative. A large part of this role will focus on finding and telling compelling stories from a vast network of data, so an interest and understanding of numbers will be beneficial. The successful candidate will ideally have experience from housing, planning, regeneration, community consultation, development or property PR. Alternatively you might have worked in a large national campaigning or charitable organisation.
If you believe you have the qualities and skills highlighted above and are interested in working for an organisation that can really make a difference to people’s lives, then please apply to firstname.lastname@example.org referencing DM 914530
