Application deadline: Mon 3rd September

Media Manager – The Role

This is an exciting time for WWF and you could be part of it. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, business and communities here in the UK and around the world to drive reversing the decline in nature and other environmental action up the agenda.

As Media Manager we want you to help amplify our voice and influence. We want you to help make our message the loudest, most respected and reliable in the UK media, and to grasp the public and decision makers’ attention so they too join the fight. Working within our media team you will focus on proactively generating positive and agenda-setting news coverage of our work in advocacy, campaigns and fundraising. This will involve commissioning high impact content, handling media enquiries, writing press releases and looking for opportunities to comment on key breaking news. You will also effectively monitor and evaluate the success of our media activities.

Media Manager – Requirements

You must have worked in a fast-moving press office or news room and are experienced in seizing an opportunity to tell a news story as well as in developing and selling-in international stories to UK media.

You will have strong knowledge of current affairs, global wildlife conservation and environment issues and are confident advising senior management about media risks and opportunities. You will have a good understanding of the UK media landscape too, including broadcast, online and traditional press.

Used to producing creative content, you will also possess exceptional communication, project management and relationship building skills.

Who are we?

WWF believes in a future where people and nature thrive.

Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.

Deadline: Mon 3rd September
