The Stroke Association is planning a new exciting development in Yorkshire. We are working to open a Life After Stroke Centre in the heart of Sheffield. The centre will provide resources, services, information and support for people affected by stroke in Yorkshire.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced media relations professional to join our vibrant media team. The successful candidate will work directly with Services and Fundraising teams across the region to launch our new Life After Stroke Centre to the media.

With an awareness of the impact of stroke, you will be able to write creatively, edit and produce engaging media materials on a range of issues such as fundraising, Stroke Association services and the needs of stroke survivors and their families. You will work proactively and reactively with the media to achieve our strategic objectives around the development and opening of our Life After Stroke Centre in Sheffield.

The Stroke Association is the leading UK stroke charity. We have been leading the fight against stroke for over 20 years. We influence and campaign to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery.

This is a very exciting time for our charity and we hope you will join us on our journey. We believe in a world where there are fewer strokes and all those touched by stroke get the help they need.

We fund world-class research to develop new treatments and ways to prevent the devastation of stroke. Breakthroughs in treatment have halved the number of people dying from stroke in the UK but it is still the second biggest killer in the world. That is why we are involved in projects across the globe.

Join us and together we can conquer stroke.
