Job Details

To build a fair education for all, we need to unlock the potential in all children – not just some. Together, we’re making it happen. Every day, our work takes us closer to a better future. But we need to do more. It’s a big challenge – and we need your help to take it on.

As the Media officer, you will work as part of the wider External Relations Team, which is responsible for managing the external influence of the charity. You will position Teach First as a leading voice on education issues, raise awareness of the issues in education we care about, the policy ideas that could solve them - all while encouraging more people to start a career in teaching through our programme.

  • Can you build relationships with journalists and stakeholders to support and promote our work?
  • Do you understand the political and policy climate and how media can support campaigns to further the organisation’s aims?
  • Do you have a proactive attitude and determination to end inequality in education?
  • Do you have experience in building and using audience insight to inform press campaigns?
  • Do you have experience of successfully using social media to support media and communications campaigns?
