You will have a journalistic nose for a story, media relations experience and experience in a PR related role.

In this role you will develop, grow and maintain their core PR resources and records, you’ll be the relationship management point for all media case studies and the individuals and projects involved and will regularly interview and refresh content. The primary aim will be to upwardly drive awareness and increase participation in the campaigns and initiatives.

The ideal candidate:

You will have experience in a PR related role and hold media relations skills. You’ll be a dynamic and highly-organised press assistant or officer, looking to take on a new challenge. Good knowledge of the media landscape is required, and experience of building target media lists and developing relationships with journalists essential.
