Job description

Victim Support is looking for a Media and External Communications Lead based in London.

Victim Support (VS) is an independent charity providing a range of specialist services to people who have been affected by crime across England and Wales. We work towards a world where there are fewer victims but who have stronger rights, better support and a real influence in the Criminal Justice System. Everyone at VS is driven by our Vision Ambitions and Values to play their part in making a difference for those who experience crime and traumatic events. Working for VS gives you the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing high quality services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.

Our Media & External Communications Lead plays a critical role in ensuring that the charity is able to represent the voice of victims in the local and national media, and in raising the profile of our services.

The main duties of this role are to:

    • Lead on delivering the organisation's external communications plan
    • Run the Victim Support press office
    • Maintain VS's profile nationally through reactive media relations
    • Help enhance and protect VS's reputation using effective communication channels
    • Increase the profile of VS services, including Supportline, and drive victims and survivors to access our support through PR and media coverage
    • Support the senior team to raise VS's profile in prioritised areas, including to help acquire/retain contracts
      To be successful you will have experience of delivering media relations across print, broadcast and digital for a complex organisation. You will have strong influencing skills, be an excellent communicator and have a proven ability to plan and deliver media strategies and activities.
      Victim Support offers competitive rewards and benefits including pension and life assurance, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata), voluntary benefits such as season ticket loans and the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing world-class services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.
      Applications should be explicit enough to provide good evidence against the shortlisting criteria, which are outlined in the person specification under essential and tested area. In order to apply, please create a profile in our website (jobs section), complete and submit an online application form.
      If you have the drive to make a difference within an organisation which makes a difference we look forward to hearing from you. Victim Support are committed to recruiting with care and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks and Disclosed Barring Service checks will be required.
    Victim Support is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe having a diverse workforce at all levels allows us to represent the communities we serve and connect better with people affected by crime. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds. We therefore welcome applicants from all communities and monitor the diversity of applicants to analyse if we are representative of the communities we serve in terms of sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, trans identity, relationship status, religion or belief, caring responsibilities, age and socio-economic status. As part of our commitment to the Race at Work Charter we would particularly welcome applicants from BAME communities.
