Job Details

We are seeking an experienced Media Relations Manager to join our Media and Engagement team.

About the role

As part of our busy Communications and Engagement department, you will promote our rapidly expanding programmes, awards and policy work, proactively raising our profile with key opinion formers and the public through both traditional and digital media outreach.

Who are we looking for?

You will have excellent media contacts and a proven track record of placing exciting news stories in national media. Your work will also involve drafting speeches, briefings and letters for key stakeholders, as well as updating and fine-tuning our suite of marketing collateral. You will build and maintain good links with national print and broadcast media and leading trade bodies. You will be encouraged to attend high-profile events, and work with our Fellows and programme awardees, giving you access to some of the most innovative thinkers and a real opportunity to impact on the Academy’s mission to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy.

Experienced in managing press and media relations and adept at writing for a variety of purposes, from news releases to opinion editorials to website copy, you will be a creative communications practitioner with great news sense and a tenacious approach. You will also be skilled in evaluating media campaigns, interpreting complex scientific and technical stories and working collaboratively with a range of subject matter experts and other communications functions. A strong engineering or scientific background would be an advantage in this role. However, your initiative, drive and determination to transform our media profile is the key requirement. The ability to work collaboratively and maintain effective working relationships is also essential for this role.

Who are we?

The Royal Academy of Engineering is harnessing the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public. Together we’re working to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.

With a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive culture, we look to attract candidates from wide and different backgrounds who have a passion for the role engineering plays in society. Our aim is to make the Academy the best place to work for the staff we have and those we seek to attract.

Why work for the Royal Academy of Engineering?

We’re looking for people who are driven to make the world a better place. If you’re passionate about what you do and want to work collaboratively with talented colleagues to make change happen now and for future generations, we want you to get in touch.

This is the perfect time to join us. We have a dynamic, visionary CEO, a strong leadership team and an ambitious and exciting strategy. The value we bring as experts in our field and change agents is highly recognised and makes the Academy a motivating place to be. Our work today builds on a long, proud history with a focused and ambitious future which we’d love you to be part of.

We are looking for talented people who want to make a difference, to join our team – is this you?
