Media Lead

Are you a highly collaborative media relations professional looking for a new challenge? Do you have a keen interest in health and care research and an appreciation for the difference it can make to the lives of patients and the public?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to raise the profile of the NIHR, its people, programmes and centres of research excellence in traditional and social media. You will be part of a small NIHR corporate communications team that works closely with coordinating centre communications teams, achieving change through influencing skills rather than through a traditional hierarchical structure. You will lead the cross-centre Press Office team, supported by a senior communications officer with strong media skills, and also provide strategic input into NIHR social media channels. This is a hands-on role requiring energy, tenacity and emotional intelligence.
