We are recruiting a permanent senior media officer to support Tearfund’s campaigns and advocacy work.  You will be joining an organisation that is passionate about tackling the three defining issues of our time - ending extreme poverty, living within the earth’s limits and rebalancing inequality.  

You will engage with the media - broadcast, print and digital - so that they understand our campaigning issues and messages and include stories that inspire people to respond.  You will work closely with our campaigns and advocacy team, advising on media strategy, and delivering media campaigns and compelling articles and blogs.  You will be an accomplished writer and an experienced journalist or PR operator with an eye for a good story and the skills and tenacity to see it shared in the media.  If you have experience or knowledge of our issues, or experience of campaigning, even better.

You will be a strong team player, helping the rest of the media team as necessary to support all of Tearfund’s work across global development, fundraising and humanitarian disasters.   

You’ll be passionate about fighting climate change, poverty and injustice as an integral part of your faith. Tearfund is a faith based organisation and applicants must share our statement of faith.
