Communications Officer, £25,000 - £28,000, London

Are you passionate about the power of communications to help transform lives, change attitudes and influence government policy? Do you have experience in creating compelling content, an eye for a great story and social media flair? 

Working Chance is looking for an exceptional, ambitious communications officer who wants to use their creative talents for a brilliant cause and make their mark. We’re a small charity respected for our unique, award-winning work, supporting women from prison into high-quality jobs and changing attitudes to the employment of people with convictions.

You’ll be passionate about telling stories and creating content across platforms, with the confidence to pro-actively sell in stories to the media and build relationships with key journalists.

Educated to degree level, you’ll have a minimum of three years’ experience in full-time comms roles, ideally in the charity sector, but be excited to work with a high degree of autonomy and minimum supervision. Although we’re growing, you’ll be the sole comms person in the charity, working closely with external affairs and policy colleagues. This is an exciting time to join Working Chance and be part of our drive to support more women and help shape the debate about how the criminal justice system treats women.

To apply, please send a CV and a supporting statement of no more than two sides of A4 telling us exactly why you’re the right person for the job to jobs@workingchance.org.

Closing date:  Monday 16th October, 10am
