Communications Officer
MAG (Mines Advisory Group)

Job Description

As the only UK aid and development charity to have shared the Nobel Peace Prize, Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an energetic, inspiring and forward thinking organisation. Wars and conflicts erupt, subside and end. But they leave behind millions of landmines, unexploded bombs and unsecure arms. These pose an every-day danger for decades and disrupt the lives of communities for generations. At MAG, we believe that whenever and wherever wars happen, ordinary people should not be the ones who pay the price.

We are currently looking for a dynamic Communications Officer to working in our HQ in Manchester City Centre. As Communications Officer, you will:

  • Provide creative, operational and editorial support to coordinate the delivery of MAG’s Communications Strategy to ensure that that all communications are influential and informative for the full range of our stakeholders.
  • Provide high quality copywriting, editing and digital promotion services to MAG including maintenance and development of MAG’s website and the design and development of online print materials.

You will have extensive experience producing high quality digital and print materials whilst working in a fast-paced environment and experience of working in a varied communications role. You will also need to have strong web-based publishing skills, content management experience and have desktop publishing skills using Apple Mac or PC and knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign.

Above all, you will need to be creative, flexible, have a good eye for the small details and be ready to work in a busy and varied role. You will also recognise that effective communication can make a real difference to MAG’s success in saving lives and building futures.
