Salary: c. Circa £40,000 pa, depending on experience

London, SE1 0NZ

Closing date: Midday on Monday 26 October 2020
Interview date: Friday 30 October 2020

With an exciting new strategy and brand now in place, CPRE, the countryside charity, is looking for an experienced consumer media relations specialist, who can build on our media profile as a leading influencer while also helping us broaden our appeal and reach a wider range of audiences.

The countryside is one of the nation’s most valued assets – it’s where many people feel most alive and plays a vital role in improving our mental and physical health, not to mention tackling the climate emergency. CPRE, the countryside charity wants to connect more people with the countryside to ensure that everyone can benefit. This role is an opportunity to play an important part in achieving that.

As media lead for brand, you will be responsible for developing and delivering consumer media strategies and plans, and generating coverage in press, online and broadcast that complements our influencing work while also broadening our appeal and helping us reach a wider range of audiences. You will already have experience of developing and delivering media strategies, plans and generating large amounts of national coverage and will be happy in giving advice and direction to senior staff. We are looking for someone with a real passion and energy for generating quality consumer media coverage, helping tell the human stories that underpin our campaigning work. You’ll be willing and able to work across teams and with colleagues across the CPRE network of local groups.

You will be part of the External Affairs team, reporting to the head of that team, but working closely with communications colleagues across the organisation. However, you will work particularly closely with the Media Lead – Campaigns, with whom you will be responsible for all CPRE’s press coverage, covering each other’s work during any absence.

To apply, candidates should read the candidate information pack and job and person specification below then complete the application form (CVs will not be accepted). Please make sure you address the criteria outlined in the job and person specification; failing to do so will mean you will be unlikely to be shortlisted. Please send your completed application to jobs@cpre.org.uk by midday on closing date.
