A unique opportunity for an ambitious press officer to lead press and media relations for a national campaigning charity.

The Campaign to Protect Rural England enjoys a high reputation in the media, known for effective local and national campaigning, and high quality research.

Applicants must be able to handle the media confidently and use their excellent judgement to negotiate coverage and opportunities for CPRE. The role requires the ability to work independently with press but applicants must be approachable and diplomatic to best harness the knowledge and expertise of policy staff seeking profile for their campaigns.

CPRE operates in a fast-moving policy environment so we are looking for a press officer who is able to react quickly to a developing news agenda but who also plans ahead and can manage longer-lead projects to secure a diverse range of coverage.

The successful candidate must be organised and able to juggle multiple priorities, working quickly and accurately to deadline. We are looking for an excellent writer with the ability to translate complex policy into copy that appeals to different audiences.

This is an exciting opportunity for an energetic and creative press officer eager to take the next step in their career.
