communications and media manager (temporary maternity cover), chartered institute of housing

Communications and media manager (temporary maternity cover)

Chartered Institute of Housing

Salary: £33,302 pa

Location/Base: Coventry  

Hours: full time

Closing date: 17 February 2015

Whether it’s spiralling house prices, rising rents or the bedroom tax, housing is rarely far from the top of the media and political agendas. We’re looking for a brilliant new communications and media manager to help us keep it in the spotlight - and highlight the solutions that could really make a difference.

CIH is the professional body for people who work in housing. What our members do couldn’t be more important – they are making sure people have a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.  We also work to influence governments across the UK to get us closer to our vision of housing that works for everyone.

We’re looking for an experienced PR professional who thrives in a busy, fast-paced environment. You’ll be responsible for making sure we respond quickly to the day’s news agenda and to requests for comment, but also for working with colleagues from across the industry to translate our work into stories that will grab the media’s attention. You’ll be able to spot a good story a mile off and build relationships with national, regional and trade journalists as well as bloggers and other social media influencers.  We’re looking for someone who can turn complex technical material and policy messages into sharp, clear and compelling media releases, statements, blogs and opinion pieces – but who can also identify when an infographic, video or Vine might work better. 

This position will be offered on a temporary contract basis for up to nine-months to cover maternity leave.

Closing date - Wednesday 17 February

Interviews scheduled to take place Wednesday 24 February
