Media Coordinator, Manchester City Centre
Are you a super-creative, driven media expert who wants to use their skills for the greater good?
MAG (Mines Advisory Group) is developing an ambitious strategy which puts media engagement at the heart of our communications and fundraising.
We need you to help us maximise the reach, and impact, of work that ensures people are not living in the daily fear and poverty caused by landmines and unexploded bombs.
The Media Coordinator is the first point of contact for journalists and undertakes both proactive and reactive media work through traditional and social media channels. You will lead on the generation of newsworthy content, with the aim of securing consistent, high-impact media coverage to favourably position MAG with our target audiences across core work areas.
An expert in building relationships, with an already-established list of journalist contacts, you will define and execute a media plan that achieves a year-on-year growth in audiences and engagement, inspiring everyone along the way.
We are open to this being a flexible working post, if necessary. Candidates interested in flexible working should indicate this on their application support form.
About the organisation:
The Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is a global humanitarian and advocacy organisation that finds, removes and destroys unexploded landmines, bombs and munitions from places affected by conflict.
We make it safe for communities to use their land again so people can take themselves out of poverty and live without fear. We also provide education programmes, particularly for children, so people can live, work, travel and play as safely as a possible until land can be cleared.
Since 1989, MAG has helped over 18 million people in 40 countries rebuild their lives and livelihoods after war.
