Better communications for us. A bigger challenge for you.
Communities, partners, our dedicated team: we want every one of these audiences to get clear and inspiring council communications. It’s a complex and varied task that calls for an expert Strategic Communications Business Partner – a confident professional who’s keen to test their talents.
Working with our Head of Communications, you’ll help create everything from messages for communities to updates for our teams. It’s a chance to tackle internal and external communications, marketing, engagement and public affairs material; devising smart strategies and practical delivery plans. Crucially, you’ll keep our strategic objectives in sight whatever the project or campaign. With a firm grasp of our priorities, you’ll have the perspective and knowledge to advise at the highest levels. You’ll also have what it takes to motivate a team, getting the best out of staff to achieve outstanding results. Together, you’ll set high standards across the Council and create a function that’s fully digital.
Degree-educated with a solid background in strategic communications, you’re used to giving specialist guidance to senior leaders. You’ve also developed and managed successful communications campaigns, based on corporate goals and strategic ambitions. While this experience is key, you’ll need more to make your mark: good organisation, political sensitivity and a collaborative approach. If you strive for excellence and have natural influence, you’ll soon be respected Council-wide as a leader in your field.
