This is a fantastic opportunity to use your communications skills at a leading medical research charity, encompassing both media relations and strategic communications initiatives.
We are looking for someone with experience of either pharma/biotech, life science, medical charities or technology sectors, though other sectors will be considered.
The role will involve communicating our work to a variety of audiences including, but not limited to, internal stakeholders, industry, the third sector, government and the wider public. You will also be responsible for our social media output.
Candidates with corporate communications or PR experience, working for a well-known PR agency or high profile in-house team are preferred.
The person will be a self-starter identifying media and communications opportunities to industry, partners and to the public. You will help position us as a thought leader on relevant issues and raise our profile to relevant sectors.
