What we want from you
To be able to demonstrate your experience at planning and implementing integrated PR/media campaigns from broadcast to social.
To have the communication, experience and diplomacy skillset to form effective professional relations, representing our team at applicable internal and external settings and events: an ability to work as successfully with a stakeholder or a celebrity as you are sensitive to the standpoint of a man living with prostate cancer.
To be a flexible, highly motivated team player and an influential leader and line manager who can devise, prioritise and react to shifting demands and tight deadlines.
To follow our organisational practices and make a strong contribution to the Communications strategy.
Why work for us?
We're here to stop prostate cancer killing men and damaging bodies and lives. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise, we continue to make advances in research to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment and support so that we can build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.
Work with us and you'll see the impact of your efforts as we fight for a better future for men.
What we offer
Join our team and you'll be working at an award-winning charity that will support you to develop your skills and expertise. We're particularly proud of our agile working arrangements which allow (as appropriate to the role) for flexibility around where and when we carry out our work to ensure we can achieve the best results for the charity, at the same time as balancing our working lives with life's other commitments!
We also offer a competitive benefits package including generous leave entitlements, season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, an enhanced contributory pension scheme, life insurance and group income protection as well as a Health Cash Plan and free advice and support on pretty much anything via our Employee Assistance Programme.
Our teams, supporters, partners, and those living with prostate cancer, come from all walks of life. We draw upon the difference in who we are, what we've experienced and how we think to build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes our charity stronger and helps us reach more people. If you share our ambition we would love to hear from you.
Closing date is 23rd January 2022, but please note we will be shortlisting and interviewing candidates as applications come in, so please apply as soon as you can to ensure you're included, as we may close the vacancy early.
