Contract Type

Do you have PR/media experience combined with a 'can do' attitude, and feel ready for an exciting and varied role at the heart of our company?

UK Power Networks delivers power to 8million homes and businesses, owns and invests in the electricity infrastructure and fixes power cuts. We're looking for an enthusiastic talented writer with great interpersonal skills to spread the word about what we do in an engaging and accessible way. The ideal candidate would thrive on building contacts with national, trade and regional journalists and across our business, spotting story angles, advising colleagues on publicity issues, and answering media enquiries.

Experience of working directly with the media in London, and/or for a corporate organisation or the energy industry, are desirable and ideally you will live in the London area. In this role you would have considerable scope for progression and bringing forward new ideas. The post holder will need to work well under pressure to manage fast-moving issues, and be keen to resolve problems, with a passion for good customer service. This role includes out-of-hours duties on a rota basis and will be based primarily at our head office in Elephant&Castle with lots of opportunity to get out and about across London.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you before the closing date of 14.09.13.
