This is a remarkable opportunity to play a key part in a rapidly expanding and unique arts and media organization, the Institute of Art and Ideas (IAI).
Described by the Guardian as “the return to big thinking” and by Total Politics as “Europe’s Answer to TED”, the IAI is a global platform for big ideas with the world's leading thinkers, politicians and scientists represented. In addition the IAI organises events, including HowTheLightGetsIn – the largest festival of its kind - which takes place twice a year in Hay-on-Wye and London.
We are looking for a talented Press Officer/Journalist to join our communications team. You will have input into the overall media strategy of the organization and be responsible for planning and delivering creative campaigns for HowTheLightGetsIn Hay 2019 and HowTheLightGetsIn London 2019 in conjunction with our PR agency. You will also be responsible for writing press releases and articles, and ensuring that they result in strong press and online coverage for our extensive programme.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate excellent journalistic and copy writing skills, a good knowledge of current affairs and an appreciation of our content, the ability to build relationships with journalists and the media, as well as devise and sell original stories, and the drive to succeed. Experience in a press/PR environment would be an advantage. Given the IAI's content an excellent academic background is essential with a least a 2.1 from a top university.
