Are you used to working in a busy press office or newsroom and do you know how to use compelling storytelling to increase visibility through the media? Would you like to use your skills and expertise for good? Join WWF in the fight for our world as a Media Manager in our News team.
Join us at WWF UK and you will help to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together. As Media Manager you will proactively generate positive and agenda-setting media coverage of our work in advocacy, campaigning and fundraising. We want you to help make our message the loudest, most respected and reliable in the UK media, and to grab the attention of the public and decision makers so they join the fight for our world.
This will involve building relationships with national news journalists and connecting them with our stories, projects and campaigns. You will confidently pitch stories and ideas to media outlets to maximise exposure within a variety of media types. You will also gather content, produce press releases and coach colleagues for media interviews. You will be a reliable and valuable member of our busy news team, answering journalist inquiries as well as getting involved in monitoring and evaluating the success of media activities and joining our on-call rota.
You will have worked in a busy media office and can demonstrate a track record of delivering high quality media coverage. An excellent communicator, you will also write and produce content to a high standard, at short notice and often under pressure. Important will be the ability to spot and exploit media opportunities. You will have an excellent understanding of media landscapes and strong project delivery skills.
This position offers flexible working. Our team is based at the Living Planet Centre in Woking but we welcome applications from candidates who would spend some of their week working from home or another location.
