Reading is a great place to live and work. We have a successful local economy, buzzing town centre, fascinating history and a bright future. We also have some challenges.
To help us tell our story we need a Press Officer to join our busy Communications Team based at the Civic Centre.
You could be an experienced media or PR professional with public sector experience, or have a recognised journalism or PR qualification (eg NCTJ or CIPR), or both. If you think you can thrive in a busy, dynamic, politically sensitive environment, we want to hear from you.
This is a politically sensitive post.
