About the Media & Messaging team
M&M is the mouthpiece of XRUK, running all the digital and press comms: social media, website, email, Telegram broadcast channels, and mainstream media.
The team sits at the very heart of XRUK, closely linked with Actions and our many allies. The team’s output sets the tone and energy of the movement - this is extremely rewarding and impactful work!
The Internal Coordinator acts as the team lead, setting priorities, running the team, and driving the work.
This is one of the most impactful roles in XRUK, directly responsible for what XR says to the country.
This role works well as a job share between two people, supported by the External Coordinator and an additional Admin role within the team.
