At Battersea Dogs & Cats Home we’re a skilled, close-knit community of professionals – an incredibly diverse range of people, but united by our passion for what we do. We’re looking for a team player with great energy, drive and talent to help us continue to change the lives of thousands of animals every year.

You’ll deliver a range of day to day media and PR activities: building strong relationships with journalists, dealing with enquiries and writing press releases, as well as working to develop and pitch news story ideas. You’ll also help to build on the Home’s already strong reputation by writing effective, engaging copy for print and web channels.

An outstanding communicator with substantial media and PR experience, you must also be highly organised and have a good understanding of how to build strong relationships in a not for profit environment. Good attention to detail is essential.
