Job description

Liberty is an independent membership organisation. We challenge injustice, defend freedom and campaign to make sure everyone in the UK is treated fairly.

We are campaigners, lawyers and policy experts who work together to protect rights and hold the powerful to account. We empower others to defend their own rights and the rights of their family, friends and communities.

Our principles are guided by evidence and expertise – not political agenda, profit or popular opinion. We’re not afraid to speak uncomfortable truths or confront intolerance and abuse of power wherever we find it.

Our Communications Team works closely and collaboratively with journalists, grassroots organisations and campaigners to expose and challenge injustice and amplify the voices of people directly affected by the issues we campaign on.

Together we’ve been making the UK a fairer, more equal place since 1934.

The Media Officer will join Liberty’s Communications Team, which leads the organisation’s strategic communications across an array of human rights issues on a range of platforms.

The Media Officer is responsible for developing and implementing press plans, responding to journalists’ enquiries, drafting persuasive and engaging press materials, briefing journalists, Liberty clients and Liberty spokespeople and ensuring all Liberty colleagues are kept up-to-date on breaking news.

This is an exciting role and a great opportunity to join a dynamic press office in one of the UK’s oldest and most effective human rights campaigning organisations.
