Job Title: Press & Campaigns Assistant
Working For: The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas)
Salary: Circa £24,000
Would you like to join the fight for women's reproductive choice?
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service - the UK's leading charitable provider of abortion services - is looking for a Press & Campaigns Assistant to support the campaigns, fundraising and social media activity of its busy External Affairs Department in central London.
The department is responsible for BPAS's press and public policy work, including campaigns such as We Trust Women to decriminalise abortion across the UK, and Back Off, calling on the Government and local councils to move anti-abortion protests away from clinic doors. We use our social media channels to inform and engage with public discussion on a range of issues - from the changing age of motherhood to why emergency contraception belongs on our pharmacy shelves - and we push for women's access to evidence-based information, not scare-mongering, on all matters relating to reproductive and sexual health. We also fundraise to support our work through our Friends of bpas network and standalone campaigns.
The successful candidate will ideally have experience of growing social media channels and assisting in campaign work. Enthusiastic, hardworking, and possessing excellent interpersonal and communication skills, (written and verbal), you will be both a team player and a self-starter - comfortable working with others and on your own initiative.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to use their experience and passion to work to extend and defend women’s reproductive rights across their lifetimes, from IVF to abortion.
If you trust women to make their own decisions in pregnancy, join us.
