Are you looking for a role to be more than employee - be a storyteller, an advocate and a force for a positive change.
Embark on an exhilarating career journey as a Regional Public Relations Officer with the Royal British Legion, stationed in the vibrant South of England. Picture yourself at the forefront of our dynamic Public Relations team, where your passion for storytelling and strategic communication will shape the narrative of a revered organisation.
Come and be part of the leading Armed Forces charity, making a difference to the lives of those who have served to keep us safe and protect our way of life.
As the linchpin connecting our mission to the public, you'll travel the scenic landscapes of the South, bringing the Royal British Legion's impactful work to life. This isn't just a job; it's an opportunity to be the face of a legacy, engaging with stakeholders, representing Royal British Legion, and immersing yourself in the heart of communities.
Your role isn't confined to an office; it's about weaving compelling stories that resonate across traditional and digital media platforms. Imagine crafting press releases, articles, and speeches that captivate audiences, driving awareness and support for our noble cause. With your flair for media relations and negotiation skills, you'll secure significant coverage, ensuring the South echoes with the stories of the Royal British Legion.
Collaboration is key, and as part of our close-knit team, you'll work alongside passionate colleagues, contributing to the strategic vision set by the Regional Public Relations Manager. From managing impactful media campaigns to providing logistical support for events, your influence will be felt throughout the region.
What sets you apart? Your proven track record in media relations, public relations, or journalism, coupled with your adeptness in navigating MS Office and in-house databases. You're not just an expert communicator; you're an advocate for our mission, armed with the ability to connect with journalists, stakeholders, and the diverse communities we serve.
Here at RBL, we aim to support our people and their wellbeing, with a package including generous paid holiday allowance and pension scheme contributions, and a range of optional benefits and discounts.
You will be contracted to your home address, and you will perform most of your work remotely there using our collaboration tools to work with colleagues, with occasional travel (incl. for monthly team meetings).
