Media Manager | Cruse Bereavement Care

0808 808 1677

Are you a PR professional who thrives on delivering meaningful coverage? Do you love chasing press opportunities and creating them for charities too? Do you value the potential PR and social media have to elevate a charity's brand and service delivery? But mostly, do you feel passionately that everyone grieving gets the support they need? Then this Media Manager role is the opportunity you have been waiting for! 

We've been the UK’s leading bereavement charity for 62 years. This year we're undergoing exciting changes to expand and deepen our services and we need someone ambitious, organised and creative to join our successful communications team. Since the pandemic, our services have never been more needed, and one of the ways we provide support to those grieving is through our PR and social media channels. This role is critical to the organisation's impact. 

You will be the sole owner of the press office, covering reactive and proactive media. You'll lead on PR work, raising the profile of Cruse and awareness of the impact of bereavement. You'll work with other departments to support Cruse’s campaigning on behalf of bereaved people. You'll report to the Director of Communications and Digital and manage a Social Media Executive. You'll have the autonomy, flexibility and relevant experience to make a real difference to so many who are grieving.

If that sounds like a challenge that interests you then we would love to hear from you!
