About the role
FYA is looking for an experienced media professional to join our team as Youth Media Lead on a 12-month contract basis.
The Youth Media Lead drives and delivers a strategic program to elevate the voices of young people to share their lived expertise on the issues that matter to them.
Working as part of FYA’s Advocacy and Campaigns team, in this role you’ll work to build a large network of youth talent, train and prepare young people for broadcast opportunities, and pitch them to journalists and producers.
You’ll also support youth-led movements to leverage moments to strengthen their advocacy in the media, and provide coaching for young people with a sudden profile off the back of a news event.
