Would you like to work in a busy, energetic PR team, driven by a mission to ensure every dog has a life worth living?

We’re looking for a PR Officer with demonstrative experience of working in public relations and generating media coverage.

The Public Relations team sits within the Communications & Digital directorate. We help people to know, love and understand the charity and to take action to support the charity’s work. We use our understanding of Dogs Trust and the needs of our wide and varied audiences to produce impactful, creative, on-brand communications. Our strong media relations work is our focus, proactively selling in stories and reacting to enquiries.

Our Press Officers are strategically placed around the UK to ensure a geographical spread, each connected to a set of rehoming centres.

This role will be responsible for our busy London and South East region, working two days a week from our London office and requires regular travel to the rehoming centres. It also plays an active role in the out-of-hours press phone rota. As well as contributing to the day-to-day running of the press office, and driving PR activity attached to the dedicated region, this role will work towards achieving the wider objectives of the team on regional and national levels.

You’ll have worked as part of a busy press office function, handling reactive media enquiries, researching and preparing statements, produce media briefings and managing media visits.

You’ll have great organisation and time-management skills and excellent attention to detail, written and verbal communications skills. You’ll have a proven ability to make things happen, with an innate sense of urgency and the ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines. Crucially, you’ll have demonstrable experience of delivering KPIs on a variety of communications projects, using your initiative and project management skills, and a working knowledge of assisting with crisis management would be great.
