Media and Campaigns Support Officer
The role of Media and Campaigns Support Officer works across Dignity in Dying and its sister charity Compassion in Dying. Both organisations engage in important work on end-of-life policy, an area that is both interesting and challenging.
Dignity in Dying is a not-for-profit membership organisation that leads the high-profile and historic campaign to legalise assisted dying as an option for terminally ill people. Compassion in Dying is a charity that helps people to prepare for the end of life, how to talk about it, plan for it, and record their wishes. It works to change the policy environment to ensure end-of-life care is not just person-centred but person-directed.
Both organisations are united in the mission to give dying people the control they need at the end of life to have the death that’s right for them. We are seeking an individual to support our existing media and campaigns team to achieve this goal.
This role would be ideal for an individual with experience in press and media handling who enjoys working on a high-profile issue and is seeking to become more actively involved in campaigning.
