Job Description

Media and Communications Assistant

SALARY: £25,526, to £28,369 plus £3,216 location allowance. You will receive £25,526 the band minimum. Progress to the band maximum of £28,369 will be via incremental progression.

LOCATION: Central London

The largest police service in the UK. One of the biggest challenges in Communications.

Nearly nine million residents, 150,000 businesses and millions of tourists from all over the world: the Met Police is here to protect them all. Keeping London safe is 24/7 job. That means our press office is one of the busiest in the world. It’s an amazing place to be for a Media & Communications Assistant – you’ll help us fight crime by handling high-profile media coverage.

With the chance to work with and learn from a highly skilled and regarded team, you’ll bring the Met story to the wider world. With your help we’ll show what we’re doing to keep communities safe; how people can protect themselves; and how we’re fighting crime. This involves planning and implementing two-way communications via print, digital and face-to-face channels.

It’s an exciting opportunity to create the very best content, both for proactive and reactive delivery through our own and other channels. Breaking issues could emerge at any moment – which may mean working outside normal office hours. Continual improvement is a key goal and you’ll strive to apply insight, ideas and best practice.

At least one years’ relevant work experience in a communications team with a media focus working in or for a large organisation(s) with a significant external profile.

With this background, you’ll have honed your news sense and developed strong writing and editing skills. We’re also looking for an organised approach and project management skills. With these talents, you’ll be ready to handle media and communications for a large organisation.

In return, we offer a generous programme of benefits, including support for training and development, season ticket loan and extensive sports and fitness facilities.
