Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
We are currently recruiting for a Media and Communications Officer to join the media team at Unicef UK while the current post holder is on a temporary assignment in another role. In this role, you will support Senior Managers and Media Managers across the breadth of Unicef UK’s media work. You will have a specific focus on media work for large scale public fundraising campaigns such as Soccer Aid for Unicef, cross-organisational public campaigning work and some public facing corporate partners.
To succeed, you will have previous experience in a PR agency, media relations office or in journalism, ideally with experience of working on fast-paced and high-profile issues. We are looking for demonstrable experience of proactively delivering high level consumer media coverage and a strong track record of writing communications materials, including press releases, features and case studies and experience of implementing communications strategies.
