JRS UK is looking for a capable and competent individual to join our team as the full-time Communications Editorial Assistant, supporting our communications and fundraising activity. The external communications of JRS UK seek to be clear and balanced, and congruent with our values as an organisation, protecting and highlighting the dignity of refugees at all times. We place a high value on encouraging refugee participation in, and the shaping of, our messaging. The Communications Editorial Assistant is a dynamic and varied role developing written and visual content which: raises awareness of the situation faced by people seeking asylum and experiencing immigration detention in the UK; the work JRS does in response; and the difference supporters donations makes to individuals’ lives. Through all our communications, we seek to engage existing and new supporters of JRS, particularly among the Catholic Community, as well as influencing public debate and opinion. The role will involve working with digital and social media, alongside traditional print media.
This role would suit a creative individual with outstanding written communications skills who is passionate in supporting refugees and asylum seekers. The postholder will have strong attention to detail, experience of working in communications, excellent organisational skills, and a flexible approach. The role involves working alongside refugees and volunteers from varied backgrounds, so high levels of empathy and sensitivity are essential, along with an enthusiasm for working in a small and dedicated team. Much of our communications material directly engages with the faith-basis of our mission so enthusiasm and an aptitude for developing our resources in this area is essential for this role. The role will involve some evening, weekend, and ‘duty communications’ work, for which time off in lieu should be taken.
