JOIN OUR TEAM: We're looking for a new Network Manager!
At the Public Interest News Foundation (PINF), we want everyone in the UK to benefit from public interest news that speaks to them, for them and with them.
We work with print and digital news providers of all shapes and sizes, focusing in particular on independent providers with turnover below £2m. These innovative social enterprises are developing new models of journalism, but they face great challenges. Since we started work in March 2020, we have provided independent news publishers with funding and development opportunities, backed up by original research, worked with publishers and partner organisations to address challenges and build on opportunities in the sector, and launched the ‘News for All’ campaign to promote the value of independent news to policymakers and stakeholders.
Now, we are hiring a Network Manager to help us maintain, grow and mobilise the network of news providers and support organisations in the sector.
We want to continue building the capacity of independent news providers by sharing information and ideas, building relationships, developing leadership skills and identifying and making progress towards shared priorities. Do you want to see a better future for journalism in the UK? Do you have the skills to build, organise and engage a wide coalition of partners around capacity-building and advocacy goals? Do you want to work in a start-up organisation with big dreams?
If so, we invite you to apply to become PINF's Network Manager! Applications close April 14.
As Network Manager, you will:
Lead on the successful delivery of an engaging year-round programme of in-person and digital events for independent news providers and key stakeholders, including the Independent News Forum, a major in-person event to be held in a British city outside London in autumn 2023, and a range of online and in-person workshops, seminars, roundtables and meetups
Contribute to the successful delivery of the News for All campaign, working in partnership with the Campaigns Manager, with particular responsibility for ensuring that independent news providers are able to contribute to the campaign and that the campaign meets their needs and expectations.
We are committed to building a diverse team who can bring their experiences from work and home into this role. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from Black, Asian or minoritised groups, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities. We support anonymous recruitment, and we are working to remove bias from the hiring process.
We look forward to hearing from you.
