PINF is looking for a Programmes Manager

We are looking to appoint a Programmes Manager to support our mission for public interest journalism to survive and thrive.

  • £40,000 pa plus benefits OR consultancy contract

  • Home working

The deadline for applications is 12:00pm, 22nd March 2021 GMT (Europe/London)


As Programmes Manager, you will have lead responsibility for PINF’s:

- Grant-making programme, through which we provide targeted grants to publishers of high-quality public interest news, including local news; investigative reporting; and publications by and for under-represented communities;

- Leadership programme, through which we provide training and knowledge-sharing opportunities for the publishers of high-quality public interest news; and

- Research programme, through which we are building the public’s knowledge and understanding of public interest news, by mapping the sector and evaluating the impact of our programmes.

You will work closely with our Executive Director and Trustees, and you will oversee the work of consultants and freelancers. Joining PINF at this pivotal moment will give you the opportunity to help shape the organisation as we expand, and recruit further roles.

At this stage, we are offering a six-month appointment, on either an employment or a consultancy basis. With further funding, we hope to turn this into a permanent appointment - so this might be the start of a long-term role.
