You will be responsible for building links with local broadcasters and supporting them in their charity coverage. You will also lead on building and maintaining partnerships with key print titles in your regions. You will need creativity and enthusiasm to engage local stakeholders and make the campaign feel truly local. Working with the campaign marketing team is a significant part of this role, and you will be responsible for identifying and setting up local marketing opportunities for the campaign.
