Media Officer, Open to flexible working

About the opportunity

Islington is a great place to live and work. Our diverse community pulls together, and we have a strong focus on fairness. That’s because Islington is also a place with a stark gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’, and where one in three children is growing up in poverty. We’re determined to create a fairer Islington, where everyone has the chance to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, creative and hard-working media officer to join our communications team.

You will be making the news with stories about our work; dealing with inquiries from journalists from local, London and national media; devising compelling content for social media; and making sure council officers and councillors are kept up-to-date with media coverage that affects their work.

As part of the media team in our high-performing communications service you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in a range of exciting projects and campaigns.

About you

You will have one or more years’ experience in a busy communications environment, and have excellent verbal and written communication skills. You will have bags of initiative, be well-organised, and able to work to tight deadlines as part of a team.

You might already be working in a similar role, or in a related area of communications – for example journalism, social media, or marketing – and seeking to move into media.

Closing date: Sunday 23rd September 2018 at 23:59

Interviews will be held on 4 and 5 October 2018.
