Job description

Head of Media & Public Affairs

£56,000pa plus excellent benefits

London WC1

35 hours per week, full-time

Due to Covid restrictions, all staff are currently working from home.  However, once it is safe to do so, the London office will reopen and staff will be required to work from the office for a minimum of 60% of the week and the remainder from home.

As Head of Media and Public Affairs you will play a pivotal role in an organisation that is leading the way in children’s health.

This is an exciting position with a mix of communications disciplines, calling for an individual who enjoys a fast-paced and high-impact environment.  As a senior role within the Policy and External Affairs Division, you will be responsible for a busy and effective team, working to ensure that the RCPCH maximises its influence and impact with a range of audiences.  Reporting to the Director of Policy and External Affairs, you will work across the Division and the wider College to plan, develop and implement targeted media, social media and public affairs strategies.

You will be in charge of leading all proactive and reactive media handling to champion the RCPCH in the media, building and maintaining strong relationships with journalists and media outlets.  In conjunction, you will ensure that the College has a strategic and coherent approach to its social media management.  You will also be key in driving the College’s Westminster public affairs work to secure political support for our policy messages, building and fostering relationships with the UK Government, Whitehall, Westminster Parliament and other policymakers and shapers.

Within the RCPCH, this is a high-profile position, offering varied engagement with different audiences.  You will bring your communications expertise to help influence several issues affecting paediatrics and child health.  In this, you will relish the unique opportunity to bring your skills and experience as a first-class communicator to support the breadth and depth of the College’s priorities.

You will be a strong relationship builder, at ease with integrated communications and able to translate complex information into compelling content. The role balances strategic planning and operational delivery. Politically astute and fully adept at horizon-scanning, you will be experienced in providing recommendations for action.

About us

The Policy and External Affairs Division actively promotes the membership, stakeholders and the public awareness of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) and core child health priorities.

The RCPCH sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

The RCPCH has more than 20,000 members and fellows and employs around 170 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We also have teams in the devolved nations.

The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.
