Liberty, Media Manager
An exciting new leadership role has been created at Liberty in what promises to be a pivotal year for human rights and civil liberties in the UK as we come out of the pandemic. The primary remit of this role is to ensure we secure quality media coverage for a campaign that sits at the core of Liberty’s mission – the ability for ordinary people to stand up to power.
Working closely with the Communications Director, the Media Manager will be responsible for devising, delivering, and supervising press plans on the campaign to safeguard the UK’s human rights framework as well as Liberty’s other 2021 campaigns.
This role demands someone who is highly organised and expert at time management as they will be expected to coordinate a busy press office alongside strategic planning. The post holder must be a creative self-starter who is goal-orientated, but who also has a good handle on strategic communications and an understanding of how to affect change through targeted and thoughtful media engagement.
Working closely with the Communications Director and the Digital Manger they will ensure Liberty continues to issue fast and effective responses to breaking Government announcements and emerging legislation so that Liberty leads the conversation on human rights in the UK.
The Media Manager will lead a team of two Media Officers and be responsible for the day-to-day smooth running of Liberty’s busy press office. They will supervise incoming press queries, delegating a fair workload and ensuring that the press office’s processes are followed and that the associated databases – such as the quote database and the coverage log – are maintained to a high standard.
This is an exciting role and a great opportunity to lead a dynamic press office in one of the UK’s oldest and most effective human rights campaigning organisations.
