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 a PR Manager to join Unicef UK. In this role, you will deliver Unicef UK’s communications and media work for public campaigning and public fundraising. You will manage relationships across UK media and contribute to internal strategic thinking about how to maximise our campaigns and fundraising.
You will also work alongside others to deliver effective, ambitious and well-messaged media coverage to promote our high profile communications projects, such as Soccer Aid for Unicef, World Children’s Day, fundraising gala events and high-profile supporter fronted media campaigns.
To succeed in this role, will have experience of developing, implementing and evaluating high profile media strategies and securing effective coverage within key mass media titles. You will be an exceptional communicator, able to develop highly productive working relationships with consumer journalists, key internal stakeholders and external partners. You will have experience of working in or dealing with the voluntary sector on development issues. You should have a strong knowledge of the UK media, humanitarian issues and children’s rights.
This role offers a genuine opportunity to make a difference to the lives of millions of children around the world.
