Just Like Us is recruiting for a Comms and Press Officer. This is an extremely exciting time to join Just Like Us – in 2021, our Growing Up LGBT+ report hit major national, regional and LGBT+ press, highlighting huge challenges that LGBT+ young people are facing today, and we recruited more schools than ever to join our programmes through press, billboards, social media ad campaigns and email marketing. In 2022 and beyond, we want to grow our Comms team so that we can continue driving our brand awareness, engagement and sign ups to our programmes.

Ideally, we are looking for a candidate with some press experience and press contacts (that could be through PR or as a freelance/part-time/full-time journalist), although this is not essential. Alternatively, you may be someone with great copywriting experience through marketing, sub-editing or another relevant field.

You need to be someone who can write succinct, sharp copy to produce effective press releases that journalists can easily pick up, as well as marketing emails and social media content that persuade our audiences to take action.

We are very keen to hear from underrepresented voices, particularly Black and PoC candidates. You would be joining a very friendly, creative and motivated Comms team, working alongside our Social Media Officer Malik Haddington-Ahmed (he/him) and reporting into Director of Comms and Media, Amy Ashenden (she/her).
