At the Public Interest News Foundation (PINF), we want everyone in the UK to benefit from public interest news that speaks to them, for them and with them. We work with print and digital news providers of all shapes and sizes, focusing in particular on independent providers with turnover below £2m. These innovative social enterprises are developing new models of journalism, but they face great challenges.
Since we started work in March 2020, we have provided independent news providers with funding and leadership development opportunities, backed up by original research. Now, we want to strengthen the support for our mission among policymakers in the UK Government and devolved administrations.
As Campaigns Manager, you will have lead responsibility for the success of the ‘News for All’ campaign, which aims to promote the value of independent public interest news to policymakers and stakeholders. You will also be responsible for coordinating the Public Interest News Network, through which we work with a range of our partner organisations. And you will make sure that our core communications are clear and compelling.
We are a small, dedicated team with big ambitions. We work remotely from home or in co-working spaces, with get-togethers at least once a month. We all contribute to PINF’s evolving strategy, and we support and stretch each other to do our best work.
We are committed to building a diverse team who can bring their experiences from work and home into this role. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from Black, Asian or minoritised groups, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities.
You will have the following skills and attributes:
- Advocacy. You will be able to develop and deliver an effective campaign, drawing on your excellent knowledge and understanding of the UK’s political framework to build effective working relationships with Ministers, MPs and Peers, members of the devolved administrations and civil servants.

- Media. You will be able to engage effectively with print, digital and broadcast journalists, and manage PINF’s social media channels.

- Partnerships. You will be able to build a coalition of organisations and individuals, drawing on your skill for effective working relationships and your instinct for collaboration to engage and empower people from all backgrounds and experiences.
- Administration. You will be able to stay on top of your workload by using relevant software (including Microsoft Office, e-campaigning tools and content management systems), keeping accurate and up-to-date records, and prioritising between competing tasks.
In your first 12 months as Campaigns Manager, you will:
- Lead on the successful delivery of the ‘News for All’ campaign, through which we are working in partnership with a range of organisations and individuals to ensure that policymakers support independent news providers through the forthcoming Digital Competition Bill and other areas of public policy.
- Co-ordinate the Public Interest News Network, through which we are developing our relationships with our partner organisations, to ensure that we contribute as effectively and efficiently as possible towards our shared aims.
- Build PINF’s profile and reputation with key audience groups, including not only policymakers, but also independent news providers, philanthropists and big tech companies, through a running programme of media and social media communications.
We are a small and friendly team of dedicated people who work remotely with a high degree of responsibility and autonomy. We meet at least once a month in London, and we can cover reasonable travel costs for employees who are based outside London to attend these meetings. We can also pay for employees to use co-working spaces in their local area if they prefer not to work from home. We are happy for employees to manage their own time, so long as they are available to take calls and meetings and respond to emails within normal office hours (9.30am-5.30pm, Monday-Friday). The Campaigns Manager will be entitled to 28 days paid leave, including bank holidays.
At PINF, we are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive organisation. We offer flexible working arrangements to support staff from different backgrounds, and we particularly encourage applications from people whose backgrounds are under-represented in the news media.
We intend to appoint the Campaigns Manager on a twelve-month full-time contract (40 hours per week with an hour each day for lunch). With further funding, we hope to develop this into a permanent role, so, for the right candidate, this could be the start of a long-term involvement with the Public Interest News Foundation. Permanent employees receive matching pension contributions of 5% and can participate in our salary sacrifice scheme to lease an electric car.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.

With support from the Community Engagement Officer, you will also help develop and coordinate content for the campaign’s owned digital channels, including the campaign website, making sure that owned and paid activity is complementary and works together to advance campaign aims.
You will also manage the monitoring and evaluation of the campaign, taking a forensic approach to capturing key insights and learnings and making sure these are embedded in ongoing campaign development. You will constantly be on the lookout for insights into our target audiences that will help us better engage them, and be curious about new approaches and examples of best practice that could improve This is Engineering’s effectiveness. Drawing on your deep knowledge of campaign data, you will work with the Academy’s fundraising team to present the progress of the campaign and shape a compelling story about its success that will engage new partners and funders.
Working alongside the Academy’s Media and Digital Communications teams, you will also support the delivery of National Engineering Day, a national awareness day spun out of This is Engineering to celebrate the impact that engineers have on our lives and broaden public perceptions of engineering. Now in its fourth year, National Engineering Day (formerly known as This is Engineering Day) has consistently mobilised engineers, engineering organisations and influencers across social media to spread the word about engineering, and gained widespread media coverage across broadcast, print and online titles.
Who are we looking for?
You will be a digital marketing manager with deep knowledge of different digital and social media channels, predictors of success on those channels, and of best practice in the evaluation of digital marketing. Experience in managing campaigns that have engaged teenagers would be a bonus. You will have excellent written and oral communications skills, strong analytical capabilities, and a flair for project management. You will love getting to know your target audiences and will be passionate about helping young people shape their futures, and about the opportunities, engineering can offer them. You will also be a team player and natural collaborator, comfortable working with a wide range of colleagues from different disciplines within and beyond communications, and at different levels of seniority.
