About this role

The King’s Fund is an independent think tank that uses research and analysis to help improve health and care in England. 

We are already the leader in our field; we have a strong presence in the media, have a respected voice in parliament, and have strong connections across the health and social care sectors. We are now looking for a Press and Public Affairs Manager to help give our work even more impact in influencing positive change. 

The role will focus on continuing to develop strong working relationships with journalists and securing high levels of media coverage for our work. It will also involve leading communications on specific projects and working regularly with parliament and with other stakeholders. 

So, if you have already proved your ability to deliver first-class media relations work and have good knowledge of public policy and parliament, this role could be right for you.
