Job Details

Who we are

CAFOD is a leading international development charity in England & Wales and is a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).

CAFOD is part of one of the world’s largest aid networks (Caritas Internationalis) which has a presence in 193 countries, and is the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. We work through Catholic and secular organisations to reach people of all faiths and none and in places that others can’t.

About the role

This is the perfect role for a creative person who has a passion for telling stories through the media.

We are looking for a creative go-getter with lots of ideas. We want someone to come in and try different angles to secure media coverage, both at the local and national level. No idea is too big or too small - you’ll be given room to flourish and come up with ways to raise the profile of CAFOD.

While there is a key emphasis on fun community stories and profiling fundraisers, the role will also support advocacy, campaigning and policy media work.

The role is for a storyteller at heart. You should be able to write well and be able to build relationships with a wide range of people so you can share their stories.


  • Experience of securing media and PR coverage
  • Ideally experience of getting fundraising or community stories into the national or regional media (not essential)
  • Experience working with digital teams, to ensure a “digital first” approach to media
  • Experience turning complicated issues into newsworthy stories
  • Experience coming up with your own ideas to generate media coverage
  • Experiencing creating captivating and inspiring content
  • A passion for international development and the values of CAFOD
  • Safeguarding

All CAFOD staff share responsibility to promote and maintain a strong safeguarding culture, including identifying the key actions they should take given their role and responsibilities.
