About the role:

Are you a super-creative communicator who wants to use their skills for the greater good?

We’re looking for a driven, self-motivated communications officer to join our small and high-performing communications team which has a significant portfolio of responsibilities, including support for the fundraising, policy and international programme teams, as well as global campaigns.

You’ll work to develop our communications approach, creating content for our channels including social media, blogs, reports, press releases and briefings. You’ll have an eye for timely, reactive content and know when and how to deploy different tactics to engage a variety of audiences.

An excellent writer, you’ll be social media savvy, have a good eye for detail and design and be adept at planning ahead. You’ll be great at proactively identifying stories across the organisation and confident in liaising with colleagues – both in the UK and internationally – to get stunning content and craft engaging narratives.

About the organisation:

The Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is a global humanitarian and advocacy organisation that finds, removes and destroys unexploded landmines, bombs and munitions from places affected by conflict.

We make it safe for communities to use their land again so people can take themselves out of poverty and live without fear. We also provide education programmes, particularly for children, so people can live, work, travel and play as safely as a possible until land can be cleared.

Since 1989, MAG has helped over 17 million people in 40 countries rebuild their lives and livelihoods after war.
