Director of News and Media – New Economics Foundation

Director of News and Media


Full-time • Permanent Deadline: 9am Monday 31st October
The New Economics Foundation aims to be the most exciting progressive think and action tank in the United Kingdom.

Our goal is build the case for a new economy where people are really in control and to partner with other organizations seeking to build that change here and now. We believe in an economy that is truly just and sustainable, one that takes power out of the hands of unaccountable elites and enables individuals and their communities democratically to shape their own future.

The New Economics Foundation has a proud thirty-year history but we are setting out in a new direction. Earlier this month, we launched a major plan for change, along with a new website and new branding. Following that, the newly appointed Director of News and Media will lead a major overhaul of the New Economics Foundation’s media strategy with the aim of radically enhancing the New Economics Foundation’s reputation among both print and broadcast journalists.

About the role:

The Director will be required to deliver high-impact stories about the Foundation’s work. We are, therefore, looking for someone with the skills to plan and execute a series of major interventions which are prominent on news bulletins and in print journalism.

The successful applicant will join a small but highly skilled and motivated team, with impressive expertise in digital communications, web design, report design and media training. The new Director of News and Media will add to that a strong strategic sense of how the New Economics Foundation’s research and campaigning activity can best capture the attention of a broad range of journalists.

If you feel you can deliver this exciting brief we would be delighted to hear from you.
