Job Details

Are you a PR professional who thrives on delivering meaningful coverage? Do you love chasing press opportunities and creating them for charities too? Do you enjoy the relationship PR and social media has to elevate a charities brand and service delivery? But mostly, do you feel passionately that everyone grieving gets the support they need? Then this Media Manager role is the opportunity you have been waiting for!

This leading Bereavement Chairty offers support face to face, by phone, email and online to anyone and everyone regardless of when they were bereaved. Their services are provided by their network of 5,000 trained volunteers and are confidential and free.

They have been the UK's leading bereavement charity for 62 years. This year they are undergoing exciting changes to expand and deepen their services and they need someone ambitious, organised and creative to join their successful communications team. Since the pandemic, their services have never been more needed, and one of the ways they provide support to those grieving is through their PR and social media channels. This role has never been more critical to the organisations impact.

You will be the sole owner of the press office, covering reactive and proactive media. You will lead on their PR work, raising the profile of the charity and awareness of the impact of bereavement. You will work cross divisionally with other departments to support the charity's campaigning on behalf of bereaved people. You will report into the Director of Communications and Digital and manage a Social Media Executive. You will have the autonomy, flexibility and relevant experience to make a real difference to so many who are grieving.

If that sounds like a challenge that interests you then we would love to hear from you!
