Job Details

About us
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

The media team is at the heart of Crisis’ external affairs division, telling the stories of people who’ve experienced homelessness, publicising high profile campaigns that help to change laws and perceptions, and raising money for our vital services. With our 50th birthday year and a new organisational strategy on the horizon – it’s an incredibly exciting time to join the team.

About the role
The role will support Crisis’ work at a national level as well as providing media advice and support to a network of local campaigners across the country.

The post holder will be responsible for generating coverage for Crisis’ key messages and policy and campaigns through proactive hard-hitting news stories and features, as well as identifying relevant reactive opportunities including events and debates in the media where Crisis’ voice should be heard.

About you
As Senior media officer, you will lead on media for key national campaigns and fundraising activity for Crisis.

You will have experience of developing and implementing high-profile media campaigns with demonstrable results, as well as social media work both to amplify coverage and as standalone activity.

As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

· Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
· Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
· 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
