The Royal College of General Practitioners is the ‘voice’ of general practice. As the professional membership body for family doctors we represent GPs on the issues that matter most to them – and their patients. We have an exceptionally high media profile and, over the last two years, have secured a record number of mentions in Parliament.
We are looking to recruit a highly-motivated colleague to join our PR and Corporate Communications Team to help us build on our success and take the College’s reputation to the next level, right across the UK.
As Press and PR Officer you will be a part of the RCGP’s small but incredibly busy 24/7 Press Office, dealing with multiple queries from national and local journalists daily. You will use high levels of judgement to balance risk, raise the profile of the College across the UK and protect the reputation of both the College and the GP profession.
You will develop proactive media and social media strategies at both a local and national level – sourcing stories, pitching them to journalists and providing strategic advice to College spokespeople ahead of interviews. You will also source, write and produce articles for the College’s membership magazine GP Frontline and its supplements, which both go out to the RCGP’s 52,000 members.
The successful candidate will share our corporate values. In return, the College offers excellent terms and conditions.

Since rebranding the charity to become Police Care UK earlier this year, we have seen considerable interest from our core audiences to engage with us in a digital capacity. This is a new role that will harness that energy and deliver great content across our digital channels that engages, informs, and inspires our current and potential audiences to do at least one thing:
- Get the help and support they need to rebuild their lives for a brighter future
- Give support to support our mission to reduce the impact of harm on police and families
We have a new communications strategy: bigger, bolder, better, and you will be a vital part in delivering on that vision through digital. Working with the Head of Communications and Fundraising, the Digital Content Officer will shape this new role and function from the ground-up.
Knowledge and expertise in policing is not needed for this role – we can teach that (and get you opportunities to experience what the real world is like for our beneficiaries first-hand), but you will be a capable digital communicator, experienced in working in the world of digital communications for a charity.
The police find themselves in harm’s way protecting the public every single day, with some paying the ultimate price. The physical and psychological scars of policing take their toll on the men and women who keep us safe, and they carry those scars for life.
One in five police are suffering with PTSD right now. Those with Complex PTSD are also three times more likely to suffer with cardiovascular disease, and twice as likely to experience gastrointestinal issues and immune disorders, such as IBS and arthritis.
Many don't ask for help for fear of ridicule, not being believed, or losing their job. This means they are suffering in silence with no end in sight, and no-one to talk to in confidence who can provide the help and care they need.
They will simply arrive at work, put on the uniform, and parade for duty before heading out into the unknown. 11 of them will be injured on duty today, 11 tomorrow, 11 the day after.
There are currently some 5,000 police officers who are off sick because of injury, and some 12,000 are on restricted duties. They have had their arm broken whilst restraining a violent criminal, been mown down by a drug driver who rammed their police car trying to evade arrest, been shot at because they were recognised as a police officer at the petrol station or are still trying to process the traumatic scenes that haunt their dreams.
Every two weeks, at least one police officer dies by suicide.
Police Care UK is the new name for the merged charities Police Dependants’ Trust and the National Police Fund, and our mission is to reduce the impact of harm on police and families.
Independent of government and the police service, we provide a confidential programme of practical, emotional, and financial support that:
- Ensures everyone is aware of the harm police experience as part of their role;
- Enables police and families to recover and rebuild their lives; and
- Engages with the police service to do all it can to reduce or prevent harm.
We are on a strong and secure footing and committed to raising our profile and supporting more police to recover and rebuild their lives for a brighter future.
Our core values
- CARING | Our approach is one built around understanding the difficult environment in which the police operate in. We demonstrate empathy, respect, and understanding in everything we do.
- INDEPENDENT | We effectively support the service whilst being outside it. This means we can wholeheartedly champion the needs of our beneficiaries free from conflicts of interest.
- OPEN | We share our expertise, experience, and resources with others because we understand that collaboration is the only way we can reduce the impact of harm on police and families.
- RESPONSIBLE | We use our resources wisely to best support our mission, both now and in the future whilst upholding the highest ethical and professional standards possible.
- INNOVATIVE | We constantly seek new ways to improve our working practices, support programmes, and welfare options to better support our beneficiaries so that they can recover and rebuild their lives for a brighter future.
