Are you passionate about the power of the media? Have a knack for finding interesting stories? We’re looking for someone with a track record of delivering impactful media coverage to help us raise awareness of childhood deafness and motivate the public to support us.

You will work with a range of teams across the charity to plan and deliver media and PR projects to a wide range of print, broadcast and digital media outlets. Your strong communication skills, flair and imagination, together with the ability to work closely with internal and external contacts, will make you an invaluable part of our Media team. This is an exciting and challenging role and will suit someone who enjoys working both independently and as part of a wider communications department.

If you’re looking for a chance to establish yourself in a small team that makes a difference, then this role is for you. Ideally you will have experience working within a charity environment but we will see candidates with agency experience.
