Current vacancies

Marketing Officer 

We are seeking a Marketing Officer to help grow and service the charity's international membership, increase the value of our membership offer, increase our income, and deliver our e-learning programmes. You’ll help ensure our members are informed about the latest developments and learning opportunities and they’re valued for their contributions to the PVRI. No two days are the same. One day, you might be writing content for our website and social media channels, and the next, you might be welcoming respected speakers and attendees from over 30 countries to our scientific webinar. 

We are looking for someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills and attention to detail. You’ll need to create successful marketing plans and grow our membership. You will also bring excellent organizational skills and the ability to coordinate high-quality webinars. 

PVRI is a diverse and inclusive organisation. We value lived experience and we’re genuinely open minded about your background. If you think you have what it takes to make a real success of the role, we would love to hear from you. 

Applications will be judged against the criteria set out in the Person Specification, so please ensure that you reference these clearly in your supporting statement. Please email Katie at admin@pvrinstitute.org
