Job description

The Royal Society’s mission is to recognise, promote and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. To deliver this, the Society must engage effectively with the media.

We have an opportunity for a highly motivated Press Officer to join our media relations team.

Whether it is about climate change, funding for science or how new technologies are changing our lives, this role will present the views of the Society on the high-profile scientific issues of the day.

  • You must be a strong communicator with a track record of planning and delivering PR campaigns in a busy and proactive team. You will have a passion for news and getting our stories out there.
  • You will be versatile enough to promote our public programme of events, generating great coverage through creative ideas, or applying your communications expertise to developing impactful key messages that will support our policy and parliamentary work.
  • You will be able to communicate confidently with journalists, colleagues and partner organisations, providing strategic PR advice.
  • You will need to be able to manage high volumes of work, often under time pressure, and you will need to be organised and enjoy planning. Flexibility, tenacity and enthusiasm are a must in this role.
  • While you do not have to have a science background, we will expect you to be interested in science and current affairs and demonstrate a genuine interest in telling compelling science stories.

Please note when it is safe to do so, this will be a primarily office-based role. To apply, please complete the application form using our online recruitment system.
