Pro Bono Economics (PBE) uses economics to empower the social sector and to increase wellbeing across the UK. We combine project work for individual charities and social enterprises with policy research that can drive systemic change.
Through our projects, we have worked with over 500 charities since our inception in 2009. Working with our network of both experienced consultant economists and economist volunteers from across the private, public and third sectors, we help charities and social enterprises appreciate their economic and social impact and so improve their overall effectiveness.
More recently, we have embarked on an exciting new phase of our development, adding a dedicated in-house research and policy function to supplement our charity projects with ‘macro’ insights into the value and the potential of civil society in the 2020s. Armed with fresh content, we want to play an enhanced role in actively shaping the policy debate in the UK. Our new External Affairs department is core to delivering on this ambition through the team’s core functions of media, marketing and public affairs.
About the role
We are looking for a Press Officer with some experience to join PBE’s External Affairs team. This is a terrific opportunity to get involved at the heart of a growing organisation, with scope to develop the role as we continue to expand. This is a new role, created to ensure PBE can fulfil its goal of being an influential, impactful evidence-based authority on the social sector, with a communications and media profile to match.
Due to the nature of the role, some out-of-hours and weekend working may be necessary, within reason.
Post type: Full-time, fixed-term (24 months). Flexible arrangements will be considered.
