  • Actively engage with the local community and groups, fostering strong local relationships.
  • Enhance the charity’s social media presence by creating engaging content, managing posts, and interacting with followers.

The Ideal PR and Social Executive Candidate:

We are open on experience, offering a salary range to reflect this. The salary offered within our range will be dependent on level and experience; we are open to Graduate candidates with a real lust for learning and passion for all things PR at the £24,000 level, however for those with more experience (ideally 18+ months) we are open to discussions up to £28,000 per annum.

  • An enthusiastic wordsmith with a flair for writing captivating content.
  • Excellent copywriting and proofreading ability.
  • Passion for storytelling and making a positive community impact.
  • Exposure to PR, content creation, and social media (we love seeing personal ventures within this too!).
  • Creative and able to think outside the box.
  • A strong work ethic able to recognise the positive impact of your work in helping children and the community.
