ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty. Our dedicated local staff are changing the world with women and girls. We are ending violence and fighting poverty so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want.
The Women's Rights Media Specialist role is key to helping us increase the profile of our vital work, influence for change and bring in new supporters. It combines opportunities to develop media strategies, to tell amazing stories about the women and girls we work with and also to engage the public through PR and social media.
This role will provide a key point of contact for the media, and you will be handling enquiries and constantly liaising with journalists to make ActionAid UK the 'go to' voice on the rights of women and girls. You will write media releases, op-eds, blogs and social posts, and have an excellent understanding of what makes a great story.
We are looking for someone with strong knowledge and demonstrable engagement in women's rights issues, current affairs and international development. Strong relationship-building and communication skills are also essential, as well as the ability to manage deadlines and rapidly changing priorities.
If you have these skills and experience, this may be the role for you.

Our recruitment processes will evaluate the digital skills of all applicants.
