We are looking for a Communications Account Manager with the experience, creativity and drive to help us move forward with our new approaches in the Communications and Marketing Team.
You will be responsible for an account consisting of a number of council services and will also be involved across the whole mix of marketing and communications activities- this is a varied, interesting and challenging role for the right person.
A senior role with line management responsibilities, this is a great opportunity to have an influence at a council that is changing, learning from the past and working hard to improve and build a new future.
Do you have the passion, ambition, the energy and resilience to be able to operate at the heart of local decision making?
Can you deal with high-profile issues, while making a positive difference every day?
We need an experienced communications professional full of creative ideas, who can keep a calm head while delivering a best in class communications service to this large, complex, public facing organisation.
Comfortable with working in a fast-paced environment you'll be expected to hit the ground running, working at a strategic level, producing engaging communications and marketing plans, handling crisis communications and being a knowledgeable sounding board for senior figures.
You will know and understand the importance of our external profile and brand, as well as the integral connection between colleague engagement and internal communications.
You will be an excellent manager who will embrace the council's values and behaviours and will make a major contribution to the Communications and Marketing Team through a new phase in Rotherham's journey.
To arrange an informal discussion about the role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This post will have access to the Public Services Network, if successful you will be required to apply for a disclosure of criminal records check at the Basic level (unspent criminal convictions).
In order to support the Council's requirement to save a further £41 million from its budget, by collective agreement, from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2020 there is a temporary 1.15% pay reduction from the advertised substantive salary quoted, which will be spread out by means of a weekly/monthly deduction (dependent on pay frequency) from each pay period over the full financial year. In recognition of implementing this temporary measure three additional day's leave (pro rata for part time workers and new starters in year) will be granted.
Applications from Women, people from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities and Disabled People are welcomed as under-representation currently exists at this level within the organisation. Section 159 of the Equality Act 2010 applies.
