Deadline: 
26 Sep 2017

The Food Ethics Council is recruiting for a part-time communications officer to work in their shared office in Kings Cross, London. They write:

“Our influence depends on good communication. That doesn’t mean telling people what to do. We see ethics as a sharp ear and a helping hand, not a wagging finger. We need a dynamic Communications Officer to help us engage the people we work with, raise our profile and get our messages across. You will support the Executive Director in developing and implementing our communications strategy. You will build our brand and support our external affairs. You will manage our social media, co-ordinate our media relations and work with colleagues to put good communication at the heart of all our work. You must be prepared to write copy and to represent us, as well as to co-ordinate and advise your colleagues. You will have an eye for the story in research work and be good at distilling complex issues to their key points. You will take a strategic view of communication and be practiced at weighing the pros and cons of different media. You will understand how to communicate with different audiences about controversial issues and recognise that integrity is paramount.”
