Job Description

Are you a highly collaborative media relations professional looking for a new challenge?  Do you have a keen interest in health and social care research and an appreciation for the difference it can make to the lives of patients and the public? An exciting opportunity has arisen to raise the profile of the NIHR, working in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care and partners including NHS England and NHS Improvement.

You will be part of a growing NIHR corporate communications team that works closely with coordinating centre communications teams, achieving change through influencing rather than through a traditional hierarchical structure. This is a hands-on role requiring energy, tenacity and emotional intelligence.

Your organisational base will be the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) Coordinating Centre (which is provided jointly by the University of Leeds and Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust) and your direct report will be to the NIHR Media Lead. Your employer will be the University of Leeds and you will be based in London. In the first instance, this post is offered on a fixed-term basis to 31 March 2024 to align with NIHR contracts.
