Digital Media Officer

Full-time, Permanent Contract

£26,128 pa (increasing to £27,502 after satisfactory probationary period)

This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we enhance the way we communicate with audiences across the North East of England. The communications teams in the Dioceses of Newcastle and Durham are merging, creating a larger team better equipped to promote the work of the Church of England in sustaining a Christian presence in every community.

With 381 parishes in a geographical area of 3,080 square miles and a combined population of 2.3 million people, there are many stories to tell about how the Church is positively impacting the lives of so many people across the region. Whether it is in our towns and cities, such as Durham, Sunderland, Newcastle or Berwick, or in our wonderful rural communities in the Durham Dales or Cheviot Hills, telling those stories in an engaging and creative way is crucial to ensure the Church continues to promote its mission and relevance in modern-day life.

As part of our new communications team, we wish to recruit a Digital Media Officer.

The Digital Media Officer will promote the work, life and mission of the Church of England through the effective use of digital media and supporting wider communications activities to support the visions of both Dioceses. Specifically, the post-holder will be charged with the implementation of a digital media strategy, manage our diocesan websites and social media platforms, and co-ordinate the gathering of online content. He or she will work with the Director of Communications and others to help deliver the communications strategies for each Diocese to maintain a high and sustained media and wider community profile. In particular, the role will see the effective delivery of informative, engaging and inspiring digital communications, delivering each Diocese’s vision to all our audiences.
