Communications Officer



The TCPA is a small but highly influential charity that works to improve the built environment. We need a communications officer with excellent written English to help us keep our media profile high, support the publication of a range of documents, and look after and develop our recently relaunched website. Based in a fantastic central London location, you will be working with a small but ambitious team that is at the heart of the debate about how we can build enough good homes, in great places, for everyone. Our events, policy ideas and publications attract the attention of politicians, professionals and the public, and we need a well-organised communicator to generate media interest, deal with enquiries, and oversee a range of newsletters, web content and social media.


The person

With support from colleagues, you will help generate news stories and respond to media enquiries. You will have excellent attention to detail, be able to proof-read and edit documents and support our Editor-in-Chief with the production of publications. As a valued member of our small, friendly team, you will co-ordinate a range of newsletters, helping ensure they are well-written, well-designed and appealing. You will oversee the content of our website, keeping it interesting, varied and accurate. This is a busy office in a fast-moving environment and we need someone who thrives on working across a range of highly topical projects and issues. An interest in the environment and social justice would be helpful.
