Full Fact, the UK’s independent non-partisan factchecking charity, is recruiting a Head of Communications.
It’s a unique opportunity for a creative campaigner and experienced communications lead. Our award-winning factchecking team provides millions of people with accurate information on important debates through our website, other online channels, and the media.
You’ll be responsible for the impact that work has: getting inaccurate claims corrected and changing attitudes and systems that help misinformation spread. You’ll mobilise and build public support to challenge inaccurate claims and the systems that make them easier to spread. You’ll work with colleagues to get our factchecking out to best effect online and through the media.
We’re looking for someone who can refresh our communications and build on our unique strengths: a brilliant team with lots of ideas, our reputation for impartiality, and a product people crave – reliable information without an agenda.
Tackling misinformation is a globally-important challenge. Full Fact has a strong reputation and working relationships with parliament, government, the media, internet companies, and others. You’ll be responsible for overseeing all our communications and external relations and raising our profile along with our impact.
Head of Communications is a key strategic role for Full Fact, which has recently grown to 20 staff including our world-leading automated factchecking team. As a member of Full Fact’s management team you will have an important role in the general direction of the charity and in maintaining our standards of independence, accuracy, and impartiality.
It’s a varied job with lots of opportunity in a supportive, ambitious and growing team.
If you are interested in applying but not sure you have all the skills, please do apply. We are open both to supporting learning on the job and to rearranging tasks within the team to suit the skillsets of the best applicant.
