Job Title: Complaints Officer
Working For: Independent Press Standards Organisation
Salary: £28,000 - £30,000
The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) is looking to recruit an articulate, efficient and highly motivated individual to join its complaints-handling team. IPSO is the self-regulatory body for the newspaper and magazine industries in the UK.

The successful candidate will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, having achieved at least a 2:1 degree (or having been educated to an equivalent standard).

IPSO is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities within the organisation, including in recruitment, through the way we manage the organisation and provide services to the community.
