The role has responsibility for both our digital communications and our media relations. This includes managing our website and social channels, as well as contact with journalists, newspapers, radio and television. The role will be responsible for the proactive identification of opportunities for further coverage related to poverty and inequality in London, ensuring that the organisations the Trust supports are placed front and centre.
