Media Relations Managers in Public Affairs
£40k to £50k first year earnings plus pension, WFH option
These are fascinating roles with a high impact public affairs business based in Westminster which regularly gets front page coverage.  Abzed’s mission is to improve the quality of policymaking by bringing to public attention important aspects which are being missed. We deal with complex and often contentious issues including climate change, animal welfare and public health. Our outlook is pragmatic, not ideological: no side of any debate monopolises good intentions.
We are seeking to recruit full and part-time media relations managers to further increase our traditional media placement. Those who do succeed will have the opportunity to grow deep specialist knowledge and, if they wish, learn the ropes in public affairs. Working from home will be considered.
Please apply if you have worked for at least one of the highest profile national newspapers, wire services, or broadcasters. We are also open to taking on those already working in media relations who have a track record of placing stories in these outlets.
Abzed is led by a former BBC TV news producer who has written for the Guardian and the Telegraph.
How to apply
CVs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a cover letter of no more than 200 words. The closing date is 15 January 2023 although we may start to interview before then if suitable candidates emerge.
