ResponseSource Media Jobs

Recruiting public relations professionals? Looking for a journalism job? We have just enhanced our jobsite – ResponseSource Media Jobs – to make it easier to find that candidate or apply for your next career move.

OK, so there are a number of other journalism or PR-focussed job sites out there. So why use ResponseSource to advertise a role?

Since we began helping journalists and PRs connect in the late 1990s we’ve been developing a unique community of media people who rely on our services on a regular basis. To give an indication of the strength of this community, journalists send almost 30,000 requests a year through the ResponseSource Journalist Enquiry Service and over 50,000 editorial and PR staff get our popular daily newsletter the ResponseSource Media Bulletin.

Our aim with ResponseSource Media Jobs is to allow our deep community of editorial and communications professionals to connect in a way that allows recruiters and jobseekers to find each other.

We’ve actually been running a job site since 2000. Formerly known as SourceThatJob it became ResponseSource Media Jobs when we rebranded at the beginning of this year and now enjoys a more obvious relationship with our other services. Now we have also updated the site to make it easier to post, search and apply for jobs.
