We are seeking a creative and dynamic Media Coordinator to take responsibility for helping to promote the work of our Rehoming Centres by developing ideas into useable newsworthy stories for use in all forms of media.

Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and normally cares for around 14,000 dogs across its network of 21 rehoming centres in the UK and one in Dublin. Dogs Trust has a non-destruction policy and will never put a healthy dog to sleep.

Our rehoming centres house thousands of dogs each year until they are able to find a loving new home and the success of our centres wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated team of staff and volunteers; there is a real family-community within each of our centres.

Dealing with thousands of visitors each month, our rehoming centres are the face of Dogs Trust and we pride ourselves on our staff providing the very best in customer service.

In this role you will support the work of our rehoming centres and the wider organisation by providing relevant and interesting content for local media. You’ll support media interviews, providing the required dog/background information, ensure that high quality photographs and videos of the dogs in our Centres are available for use in rehoming and publicity materials and overseeing the production of these by other staff members. You’ll also help to promote the work of the Centres and rehoming appeals by using a variety of social media mediums including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

An excellent communicator with experience of working within media, PR or marketing you’ll have an eye for a story and the ability to generate ideas to support them. You’ll have good photography and videography skills, be knowledgeable and experienced in using social media in a professional capacity including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and committed to the aims of Dogs Trust with the ability to accurately convey our policies, key messages and brand identity. A full, manual UK driving licence is also required, as driving is a part of the role.
