Work for Us - Media and Communications Officer

OCD Action is the national charity for people affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The Charity provides support and information, campaigns for better services and raises awareness of OCD amongst the general public and health care professionals.

While more people are aware of OCD there is still a great deal of misunderstanding about the disorder and in particular its severity and treatability. The Charity wants to change this and encourage more people with OCD to seek help. This presents a significant communications challenge.The key purpose of this role is to support OCD Action’s media and communications work and develop the plans and strategy to meet this challenge.

Passion, commitment, empathy and the ability to express the real impact of OCD will be more important that previous experience. If this is your dream job, we would like to hear from you. For an informal conversation about this role, please contact Joel at the OCD Action office.
