We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and proactive press officer to help raise the profile of the charity and promote the charity to external audiences.

The principal aims of this post are to lead the charity’s news flow and media relations, achieving as many accurate and favourable mentions as possible in the primarily national, but also the international, equine and regional media which reflect World Horse Welfare’s organisational values, campaigning agenda and key messages.

  • Reporting to the Head of Communications, the role requires that you have journalistic experience or training along with excellent writing and interpersonal skills.

  • You will have a good nose for a story, be able to write copy to tight deadlines and use your creativity to spot opportunities to promote the charity.

  • The successful applicant will be a self-starter with an understanding of print, broadcast and online media.

  • Horse knowledge and contacts within the national and/or equine press are desirable but not essential.

Working 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, this is a truly fantastic opportunity to make a mark in your career and a real difference to horses worldwide. 

Benefits include a generous pension scheme and cash health plan, paid employee sickness absence scheme, a minimum of 31 days’ holiday (including bank and public holidays and mandatory shutdown between Christmas and New Year) and death in service.
