CONTRACT: Permanent

As the Director of Communications & Advocacy you will drive all aspects of the Medaille Trust’s communications, including updating the website, control of social media, production of our magazine and links with print and broadcast media. In addition, the role will oversee GDPR on behalf of the organisation and pioneer our advocacy work to ensure our key messages are heard with policy makers and opinion formers.

The post holder will be part of the Senior Leadership Team of the organisation and therefore will have a voice in helping to shape our ongoing strategy, although this is very much a hands-on role.

They will also be expected to meet regularly with media and parliamentary contacts.

Experience of working in a relevant public affairs or communications role is essential, as well as a passion for communicating effectively in the 21st century.
