PR and Influencer Engagement Manager – closing date 31 August 2019

The fast-paced marketing team drives activity that supports fundraising and brand development. Within this role, you will manage our media relationships, generating national, broadcast and local coverage for wishes and campaigns, as well as engaging influencers in our work.

You will be telling our compelling stories of wishes, fundraising, fundraisers and our own story though a range of media. You could also be encouraging influencers to deepen their relationship with us to support wishes, get involved with fundraising, take part in an event or support a campaign we’re running. In the event of a crisis, you’ll need to lead us through how to best manage our reputation.

You’ll need experience coordinating activities to maximise opportunities around key stories, moments and campaigns. You’ll have experience of working with celebrities and influencers in a range of different contexts and be able to demonstrate how you’ve encouraged them to get involved. You’ll also be able to demonstrate how you can generate purposeful coverage that helps drive engagement and action with key audiences.

Please apply as soon as possible with your CV and a cover letter – only applications with both will be considered. We’ll be shortlisting and interviewing as the applications come in.
