Job description

An exciting opportunity to join Hospice UK Communications and Campaigns team as our Senior Media and Communications Officer.

As Senior Media and Communications Officer you will take a lead on delivering Hospice UK’s media relations strategy, generating regular, high-quality national and regional media coverage for our work, and thinking creatively to promote the organisation’s work through the media and other communications channels.

You will make use of some of the best data in the sector to place stories that support hospices, change perceptions of end of life care, and tell the story of how important – and sometimes overlooked – hospice and end of life care is in the UK. Working with storytellers, fundraisers, corporate partners, and member hospices, you will have the great privilege of telling deeply moving human stories of compassion at the end of life. 

Working closely with the Communications and Campaigns team, you will help design and deliver communications strategies for different projects across the organisation and will contribute to creating content for Hospice UK’s digital channels and campaigns, including Dying Matters and Hospice Care Week.

Location: Hybrid Work Culture. We are proud to promote a truly hybrid work culture, recognising that every role is different and everyone has unique needs and preferences. 

This role is eligible for the Hospice UK Hybrid Working Arrangement from the start of employment. Our office is a short walk from King’s Cross station in London. Our expectation is that you will come to London at least two days each month for team meetings, including a quarterly ‘all staff’ event. The Communications team mostly comes into the office at least once a week.  

You may also find it useful to visit member hospices. You can work remotely for the rest of the time. Equally, you may prefer to work from the office full-time. 

Contractually this role is London-based.

Contract: Permanent, full time (35 hours per week)


  • 25 days annual leave rising to 30 days after 2 years (+ an extra 10 days on each 5th year)

  • Matched pension scheme up to 7% of salary

  • Support for staff with caring responsibilities

  • Family-friendly culture

Interview dates: Interviews will take place on Wednesday 6 December 2023, with a possible follow up on Friday 8 December 2023.

Interviews will take place in person in London or remotely via MS Teams. We’ll send questions to you in advance so that you can prepare. Let us know if you have any specific needs to be able to fully engage with the process.


This job expires on 30th November 2023
