Job description


Media and PR Officer

Media and Communications officer

Once upon a time there was a storyteller, one of the greatest storytellers in all the land. This storyteller knew how to captivate any audience they encountered, those with the attention span of a goldfish and a scrolling habit and even the most cynical journalist or busy politician. What was the secret to their success? This storyteller knew the power of the stories they told of children and young people with cancer, and the honour it was to tell them.

Sound like this could be you? We’re looking for an amazing person to join our merry team on its mission to make sure that every child or young person with cancer from 0-25 gets the support they need.

You’ll have experience of working in a busy press office or lively social media management and you’ll be as comfortable building great relationships with families or young people as with journalists, celebrities or colleagues across the charity.

You’ll get a real buzz from seeing how you can help change the system and make stuff happen for young cancer patients. You’ll be unflappable, friendly, determined and have loads of creative ideas on how to get our stories heard by many different audiences up and down the UK. 

Like all great storytellers you’ll be happy sharing these powerful stories across a range of channels whether it’s crafting something for insta, Twitter and Facebook, writing amazing media releases, delivering some awesome internal comms or briefing a colleague before they appear on the BBC Breakfast sofa.

In return we offer a competitive salary, impressive benefits, tea, cake or granola bars (whatever floats your boat) and the opportunity to be part of one of the most exciting charities around.

We like to think there'll be a stampede for this fantastic job, so we reserve the right to close the advert early to make sure we're not still shortlisting by Pancake Day!

CLIC Sargent is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
