Young Women’s Trust
As Communications Lead, you will play a crucial role in building the profile of Young Women’s Trust, implementing a media and communications strategy to support an ambitious new organisational strategy, and ensuring that young women’s voices – especially those furthest away from power and influence – are heard loud and clear. You’ll lead on media relations work which raises the visibility and voices of young women and the financial inequality they face, builds the profile of Young Women’s Trust and reaches key audiences in support of our campaigning, fundraising and services. You will be proactive and creative, with experience of delivering effective media campaigns from beginning to end, and the ability to translate complex policy issues into compelling, accessible messaging and content for a range of audiences. Your excellent news judgement, ability to build strong media relationships and antennae for developing stories will be invaluable as we seek to raise our profile and influence. You will have a proven track record of engaging with the UK media on important policy issues, and of supporting people whose voices are often not heard to be featured by the media. At Young Women’s Trust we value and celebrate diversity, and welcome applications regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity. We particularly encourage applications from communities under-represented in our sector including racially minoritised people, people with disabilities, and those from low socio-economic backgrounds. Young Women’s Trust is a Living Wage employer and we commit to Show the Salary for every job we advertise. Non-graduates are welcome and we offer a wide range of flexible working options including job share, part-time and compressed hours, different start and finish times and working from home. You’ll be joining a team that will embrace your ideas and support and encourage you to bring your whole self to work.
