An exceptional writer with a keen eye for a news angle and a passion for ensuring responsible reporting, you'll be working in a team that generates almost daily national media coverage in the papers, online and on TV and radio.

Crucially, you'll help to ensure that the realities of their topic - and the key issues affecting patients, including access to treatments - remain high on the national agenda. You'll produce succinct written materials of a very high standard to short deadlines, from press releases to broadcast briefings for spokespeople up to CEO level, as well as developing and implementing media strategies.

The appointed candidate will have:

  • significant experience in health or science PR, including in drafting strong evidence-based press releases and securing major national coverage in the complex arenas of scientific research or health policy, as well as in developing and implementing impactful PR plans and responding to press enquiries.
  • first-class written communications skills as well as proven experience in dealing with - and meeting the needs of - the national media on a daily basis, including print, broadcast and online journalists.
