The Role

An exciting opportunity for an experienced public relations officer to join The Royal British Legion's national media team has become available.

You will help run PR operations for one of the UK's largest charities, working on some of the highest profile national campaigns and events such as the Invictus Games, the Poppy Appeal and more recently the 75 th anniversary of D-Day for which the PR team hosted 40 members of regional and national media on board a specially chartered ship taking 250 veterans to Normandy.

The work of the Legion's PR team extends year-round and includes delivering creative campaigns to tell the stories of people we help, driving awareness of our political campaigning activity, developing stories and content for use across the organisation, working with high-profile celebrity ambassadors and engaging with national media during key events.

The successful candidate will have a relevant degree and equivalent work experience, and will have experience of media relations, public relations or journalism within a high-profile organisation. You will have experience in developing and delivering PR plans and campaigns using a variety of PR tactics and techniques, supporting and delivering national PR strategy at a regional level, and will have worked with national journalists in securing significant media coverage.

You will be able to demonstrate the ability to engage and interest journalists, to draw up creative media plans, to communicate with a range of audiences and to apply a strategic approach to your work to deliver against wider organisational objectives. You will also be capable of working in a fast-paced environment, managing a heavy workload with flexibility and have a positive approach to problem solving.

In return we offer excellent career progression including in-house and industry training, the opportunity to create and manage PR campaigns from start to finish and coaching from senior members of the department.

The Legion is the nation's largest Armed Forces charity providing services and support to all those currently serving in the British Armed Forces, veterans and their families. As the champion of Remembrance the Legion also holds a lead role in the nation's commemorative activity.
