We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join our vibrant, dedicated and successful External Relations team. You will be responsible for managing celebrity relationships across the organisation and will take a lead role in implementing our celebrity engagement programme. You will also be a key driver in ensuring effective and timely engagement with appropriate celebrities from sport and entertainment, to support our relevant activities.
With your experience and expertise, from managing communications projects to utilising celebrity databases, you’ll advise cross-directorate colleagues on high-profile relationships, overseeing reputation management and ensuring that our best-known supporters embrace our values.

You will be flexible in your approach to maximising opportunities, and skillful in coordinating celebrity appearances at our charity events, partner events and media appearances. You will stay informed of digital influencers, social trends, celebrity news and activity. Your way with words and excellent written English will enhance our multimedia feature content, and you’ll have the ability to work to tight deadlines.
