Job description

Head of Media (News and PR)

circa £55,000 per annum

Living Planet Centre Woking, Surrey, GU21 4LL

Our planet is in peril and as the world’s leading independent conservation organisation, we are on a mission to make our voice the loudest and most respected in helping to save the planet and provide a future where people and nature thrive.  

At WWF we have incredible opportunity for a skilled senior media professional to join us as our Head of Media and be part of a leadership team at the forefront of driving change.

As Head of Media, you will help shape and oversee the delivery of our media strategy. We will look to you target fundraising and advocacy audiences with extensive, bold and relevant coverage across the media. You will also use the media to challenge decision makers and put pressure on them to effect change. 

Leading our news team, you will play a crucial role in helping amplify our voice by building relationships with key media and working with colleagues across the global organisation to find and develop agenda-setting stories. You will manage the press office, which is our first port of call for journalists, media contacts in government, business and other organisations we work to influence. Important will be the ability to develop and deliver creative ways to get our issues into the news.

You will have excellent judgement and be able to work at pace and under pressure.  With experience of managing a press or media team, you will possess an exceptional understanding of the media landscape and how print and broadcast media operate. You will have been a journalist or have worked in a busy and high-profile press office. This will have given you a track record of influencing and persuading senior leaders in a range of sectors.  You will have an in-depth understanding of what makes engaging content, an eye for a story as well as excellent contacts across the media mix.

Skilled at managing budgets and leading people, you will be a consummate communicator who is able to present complicated scientific subjects to varying audiences and excels at managing high performing teams, building relationships and networking. You will be able to demonstrate a commitment to the natural world and WWF’s core mission too.

How to Apply

At WWF-UK we are committed to creating an inclusive working environment, where diversity is valued and there is equality of opportunity. We therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community and we offer a range of benefits to encourage a work life balance.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We’re looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
