We’re a very friendly, small team, although expanding nicely. We’re now looking for someone to help support PR and communications on a number of flagship projects.

You will most likely either have relevant training and be looking for your first substantive role, or already working in the field and be keen to take more responsibility quickly.

You will need to learn a lot about our platform and product and quickly pick up the nuances of our member groups. You need to have a highly creative mind-set and be enthusiastic about our ethos and projects. Every day will be different and we will train you in what we do and why, but you must already have the commitment and drive.

  • Assisting in the delivery of digital newsletters by utilising our email marketing platform to manage contact lists, send communications and track performance.
  • Developing proactive PR strategies and drafting press releases for a number of key projects. Liaising with local and trade press to boost media coverage and maintain press databases.

  • Excellent spoken and written English and the ability to generate content for diverse audiences.
  • Proven ability to create, edit and proof content for communications, ideally with experience in a communications role.
  • Sound understanding of using social media and CMS.
  • Superb attention to detail - but always able to see the bigger picture.
  • Strong project and time management skills in order to successfully manage a number of competing priorities.
  • Good interpersonal skills, and confident talking to a wide range of audiences.
  • Able to learn new systems quickly.
  • A creative mind-set, able to support the development of novel communication approaches and think forward about how to improve processes, anticipate problems and maintain audience interest.

You will have work experience in relevant roles and be ready and able quickly to take ownership of everything involved in this role. It’s likely you’ll be educated to degree level and will be able to demonstrate a real interest in what we do.

So if you think you’ve got what we’re looking for, a great can-do attitude and a realistic approach to getting things done, we’d love to hear from you.
