This is an entry-level post, aimed at a young migrant with a passionate interest in using communications tools to improve the lives and amplify the voices of other young migrants; and to campaign for a fairer immigration system that works for everyone.
We Belong believes in investing in those with lived experience as a result, the Communications Officer does not need to show extensive experience as we will be supporting the successful candidate with an extensive training and development package.

By shadowing Fiona over a 6-month period, the successful candidate will receive bespoke training and guidance, including on narrative development, rules of engagement when working with journalists, pitching media stories, identifying key audiences, messaging, etc.
· Access to an enhanced training package including but not limited to Adobe, Photoshop, Public Relations and Communications Courses.
· Opportunities to practise learning and develop We Belong’s internal and digital communication.
