Wycombe District Council
Based in High Wycombe
Full time, 37 hours a week. Six month fixed term, but with options for the future.
Closing date: 8 October 2017
We’re looking for a communications all-rounder to join our happy and talented communications team at Wycombe District Council.
What you’ll be doing
As an integral member of the communications team, you’ll have a role that is varied, challenging and at the centre of everything that goes on in the council. From engaging with our community about our multi-million pound regeneration projects, to sharing the council’s vision with our staff, in this role you’ll do it all.
Reporting to the corporate communications team leader, you’ll be working with our senior management team, our 60 councillors and everyone in between.
Who we’re looking for
We need you to be able to jump straight into our team and our work, so we’re looking for a passionate and professional communicator who has a proven track record of:
Giving strategic communications advice
Developing integrated communications plans for a range of projects of varying size, from inception to evaluation
Fantastic written and verbal skills
Creating exciting and creative content for social media channels
Writing interesting copy for a wide range of audiences, across a wide range of channels
Working proactively and reactively with the media
Working on your own and being a team player
Managing your own time, being exceptionally organised and working to tight deadlines
Tact and diplomacy and dealing with sensitive and confidential information
If you’ve worked in a political environment before, that would be a bonus.
The role is for six months at the moment, while our corporate digital strategy is developed, but we hope that there will further opportunities within our team after that.
How to apply
If think you can make our team complete, we’d love to hear from you.
Applications close on 8 October. Interviews will be on 20 October.
