Job description

103,000 young people approached local councils across the UK for help last year because they were homeless or at risk.

Do you have the skills and dedication to help ensure that youth homelessness and its impacts are at the top of the news agenda?

Centrepoint, the leading charity for homeless young people aged 16-25, is looking for a Media Officer to help deliver a first-class service to journalists and use their talents to help generate positive coverage for the charity’s fundraising campaigns and policy work. 

The successful candidate will have experience of working in the media or in public relations, and have a proven record of generating positive media coverage. As well as a great eye for a news story and excellent communication skills, you will need the ability to remain calm under pressure and to empower young people to share their experiences and aspirations.

The challenges will be varied, rewarding and include promoting new policy reports, Centrepoint’s Christmas appeal, fundraising events such as the annual Sleep Out, and Team England’s participation at the Homeless World Cup.

If you’re ready for the challenge, join our friendly and dynamic team and help give homeless young people a future.

What we offer in return...

In return for your efforts you’ll receive a competitive salary, excellent training and development, and a host of staff benefits including:

- 25 days of annual leave per year, rising by one day per year to a maximum of 27 days

- Excellent training package to ensure you have the skills and knowledge to build a new career

- Employer pension contributions of 4%

- Clear career progressions, linked to portfolio work, that enables movement up the pay scale

- Access to Cycle 2 Work loan scheme

- An interest-free travel loan

We seek to challenge discrimination and are committed to fairness and equality within Centrepoint. We welcome applications from anyone with direct experience of being homeless or using young people's services.
