Summer 2018 Campaign Writer
Dates: 02 July – 31 Aug 2018
The Lewis Pugh Foundation is looking for a hardworking writer to manage media content on board a yacht during a high-profile environmental campaign along the coast of England this summer.
The campaign will highlight ocean issues, and in particular the need for the establishment/expansion of Marine Reserves, both in UK waters and globally.
The candidate will work closely with our Chief Writer and Head of Media Communications to draft daily content for the campaign (FB, Twitter, SnapChat, Instagram), file short pieces for our related websites, and field written responses to Q&A style queries from journalists.
In addition to great writing skills and social media savvy, the applicant should have a keen understanding of UK politics and current affairs. We are looking for someone who can compose a compelling tweet on the fly, and place it within a greater driven narrative/story.
The successful applicant will be working alongside a close knit team on board a yacht and will need to have a bright, happy and cheerful disposition.
In addition to their specific responsibilities, the candidate will be required to help ‘muck in’ with everyday duties on board. (Sailing and swimming experience not required).
Hours will be irregular, frequent, if not 24/7, and working conditions may be difficult, verging on tough.
This is an opportunity to be part of a major campaign that will be closely followed by politicians, the media and the public. Help us push the ocean protection agenda so that politicians prioritize our seas.
Kindly send short biography to firstname.lastname@example.org before 6 May.
