News and Media Manager

Location: London E1 6LT

Salary expectation: £46,978

Application deadline: Thu 13th May

This is a full-time role

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

We’re looking for an experienced and ambitious News & Media Manager to lead our high-performing media team for 11 months to cover maternity leave.

This is an important time for Crisis and for the opportunity to accelerate an end to homelessness in Great Britain. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of a safe and secure home for everyone. Now, our challenge is to ensure that ending homelessness is on the nation’s agenda as we look to the future. Continuing to secure a high media and public profile for the issue of homelessness and for Crisis’ solutions will be one of the key tasks for this role.

About the role
As News & Media Manager, you’ll oversee the Media team to design and implement ambitious strategies for raising awareness of Crisis and of the issue of homelessness, changing public perceptions, and supporting our key policy campaigns and fundraising initiatives – including the iconic Crisis at Christmas appeal. You’ll provide expert leadership and management to the Media team, and work closely with colleagues within Marketing & Communications and across the organisation to ensure an integrated and audience-focused approach to all communications activities. In this key role, you’ll advise and support senior colleagues and spokespeople on messaging and reputational issues.

Deadline: Thu 13th May
