Job vacancy: Media trainer, in-house journalist, and content creator

A rare opportunity to join a unique team

We are looking for someone who loves the media to join an expanding training company that constantly punches above its weight.

We need a versatile and energetic team player to help deliver our bespoke media, communications and presentation training courses.

No two days are the same: You’ll be a lead tutor, a telephone journalist or a course designer – and you’ll be turning your hand to blog writing, podcasting and social media.

This is your opportunity to make your mark with a team that works with some of the country’s biggest brands – including 40 of the FTSE 100 – helping to communicate with clarity and confidence to develop their people.

Our courses are delivered online and in person across the country. So, there will be opportunities to travel.

And you’ll be fully supported by our small but perfectly formed operations and technical team. We’re a friendly bunch with an open-door policy.

Who are we looking for?

We pride ourselves on the realism and credibility of our training. So, you’ll need an extensive journalistic background, preferably across broadcast and print. 

You’ll also have experience in delivering training to senior managers and directors – ideally both online and in-person.

You’ll need an eye for a story and will be able to juggle different tasks and deadlines.

And you’ll combine creativity and compelling copy with attention to detail.

Oh, and you’ll need to be a team player and have a passion for helping others develop and improve their skills.  

Sound like you?

Here’s a closer look at the role and the person we are looking for:

Roles

  • Deliver bespoke training courses – in person and via Zoom (media, crisis communication, presentation skills, message development sessions and more).
    Write blogs for our family of companies.
  • Carry out mock print interviews with a broad range of clients in various sectors for training and development purposes.
  • Assist the sales team by generating incoming business enquires through the production of high-quality content.
  • Excellent proofreading skills.
  • Work alongside the account management team to develop bespoke training courses and packages that meet our clients’ aims and objectives.

Experience

  • A journalistic background
  • Experience in delivering media and communications training to corporate clients
  • Evidence of your skills and ability as a writer and broadcaster
  • Experience in working in a corporate comms, PR or media team could be advantageous
  • Must be a news junkie

What can we offer you?

  • Well, depending on your skills, you’ll get a salary of circa £45,000 a year with the opportunity of a company car if desired/required.
  • You’ll also get 23 days of annual leave a year (and it increases by a day a year for each of the first three years you are with us).
  • A convenient office location with state-of-the-art TV, radio and podcasting studios used for training.
  • Flexible working – you won’t always need to be in the office.
  • A supportive, ambitious, and fun team that works hard and is known to play harder (when baby/dog sitters allow).

If this sounds like you and you want to join a company where you can thrive and be creative, then please apply now.

To apply please get in touch with your CV and a covering letter highlighting your relevant experience.
