Benefits: Read more about the excellent benefits we offer on our profile page
Travel: If based in Chesterfield, travel to London offices once a month.

Through our diversity and inclusion strategy, we have made a commitment to increase the diversity of our charity and we welcome candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We want our employees, volunteers and trustees to represent the broad diversity of the communities of which we are a part.

We are Versus Arthritis. We are fundraisers, programme managers, volunteers, administrators, press officers and accountants all doing everything we can to push back against arthritis. Together, we’ll continue to develop breakthrough treatments, campaign relentlessly for arthritis to be seen as a priority and support each other whenever we need it. Together, we’re making real progress. But there’s still a long way to go, and we won’t stop until no one has to tolerate living with the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis.

Our newly formed Income and Engagement Directorate is the team that inspires people to give their money, their time and their voice to make a difference to people with arthritis.

We’re looking for an ambitious Senior Media and PR Officer to work as part of our newly formed Strategic Communications team and contribute to some of the biggest stories in health and research. You will help lead our media and PR activity that delivers against our strategic vision and purpose, as well as raising the profile of the charity nationally.

About the role
Working with teams across Versus Arthritis, the Senior Media and PR Officer will work closely with colleagues to devise and deliver a rolling programme of proactive media relations that secures high-profile and impactful media coverage. As part of the Press Office you will be responding to breaking news stories and be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, engaging with journalists and reacting quickly and confidently to developing issues and breaking news. The post-holder will lead the Media Officers in developing stories and investigations that expose the injustices faced by people living with arthritis, alongside research findings, statistics and comment.

The Strategic Communications team is responsible for developing an inspiring and engaging brand narrative with compelling customer journeys across all our engagement and communications activity. The team will build strong relationships across the charity, to drive a consensus around our core message, designed to deliver our strategic objectives. The team will ensure our message and brand narrative is applied across owned, paid and earned channels, using technical skills and channel expertise.

Key requirements
Alongside extensive press office and PR experience, gained either in an agency or in-house, you will be able to:

  • Lead proactive and reactive media relations activity in line with a programme of media targeting and journalist engagement.
  • Exhibit excellent writing skills, including identifying media opportunities and planning stories.
  • Demonstrate an up-to-date understanding of the UK media environment, with good contacts and knowledge of how to engage journalists across broadcast, print and online.
  • Work independently, manage varied workloads and work to deadlines.
  • Contribute to regular media evaluation reports, ensuring this supports team performance, learning and how it benefits the charity.
  • Build strong relationships with teams across the charity and with supporters.
  • Understand the importance of digital comms and social media as part of integrated campaigns as well as media relations.
  • Keep abreast of sector trends and use this insight to inform and improve our activities.
  • Participate in the out-of-hours and reactive rota - spotting opportunities and responding to daily media enquiries

We advise candidates to apply early as we reserve the right to close applications ahead of the advertised date.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

We do not wish to receive contact from agencies or media sales.

First interviews expected week commencing 12 September 2022, held by Microsoft Teams
