Communications and Campaigns Officer

Contract Type: Permanent

Working Hours: Full time 35 hours per week

Salary: £42,510 - £45,711 per annum

Job overview

In the new post of Communications and Campaigns Officer, you’ll help deliver some of the council’s major campaigns, as well as running your own first-class projects and managing a portfolio.

Main duties of the job

Whether managing the media, running email and social campaigns or coming up with creative marketing ideas, you’ll be part of a range of high-profile and fast-paced communications work. You’ll be expected to advise councillors, directors and services on communications, quickly identifying potential issues and opportunities. 

You’ll come with good experience of delivering excellent communications and an understanding of the challenges facing councils and working in a political environment. And crucially, you’ll be creative – understanding how to cut through the noise and get noticed, rather than rely on the same-old tactics. 

You’ll draw on and collaborate with our specialist internal, digital, creative and engagement teams to create brilliant content and ensure your work is targeted and tested with the audiences it’s designed to reach. 

Working for our organisation

The award-winning Communications and Campaigns team is key to achieving the council’s ambitions – telling the story of its priorities, campaigning on behalf of residents and businesses, and supporting the transformation of services for the people who use them. 

You'll join a refreshed team recently redesigned to reflect the council’s mission and changing priorities – with strategic communications and engagement at the heart of its work.
