Press and PR Manager – Travel and Commercial
With a strong track record of planning, developing and implementing successful PR campaigns, you know what it takes to sell stories into the travel media – whether press, broadcast or bloggers. So join Royal Museums Greenwich – and give your talents a higher profile with one of the UK’s top ten visitor attractions.
Take a look around and you’ll soon discover what makes this such an inspiring place. Within this stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll find the National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House, Royal Observatory Greenwich and the Cutty Sark – all combining to create a unique and environment that’s rich in heritage and filled with fascinating stories. So it’s no wonder more than 2.3 million people walk through our doors every year.
Your challenge is to lift our visitor numbers still higher by raising our profile and reputation across the travel and other specialist media (corporate events, weddings retail and food for example). Creating and delivering engaging campaigns, you’ll work to make Greenwich a ‘must go’ destination as you forge strong media relationships, attend industry events and work closely with our strategic partners within the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage site.
This is a brand new role, so there’s the real opportunity to make it your own and shape it around your own vision and expertise.
While experience gained at a visitor attraction or destination would be welcomed, it’s not essential if you’re a first-rate communicator, writer and project manager with strong influencing skills and a proactive approach. You should also bring a thorough understanding of social media, excellent travel media contacts and the ability to think creatively, identifying original news angles and feature hooks.
