Are you an enterprising, hardworking professional who believes the art of communication can transform lives? Do you dream of a career that can make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged people? Can you build relationships with journalists, and maximise opportunities to promote Thames Reach’s services and campaigns which seek to transform the lives of homeless and vulnerable men and women? Do you possess the ability to write articles that can inform and intrigue a range of audiences? Do you thrive in a complex and ever-changing environment?

The Communications Officer, a member of the Business Development Team, is responsible for planning, developing and implementing the Thames Reach Communications Strategy, working alongside the Website and Publications Editor. You will work closely with the Chief Executive and Senior Management team to ensure Thames Reach achieves excellent coverage for its services and campaigns, assessing and co-ordinating responses to media requests and actively seeking ways of raising the profile of the organisation’s vital work.

Experience of work in public relations, communications or media is essential as are excellent communication, interpersonal and writing skills. You will possess the fine art of being tactical and assertive as well as approachable and accommodating.  You will be determined to give people benefiting from Thames Reach’s services the chance to speak directly to those with influence and power.

If you are as excited as we are about how effective communication can help change lives for the better, please apply, in the first instance, by sending your CV and a covering letter to martyn.robson@thamesreach.org.uk.
