Junior Communications Officer 

  • Contract Type: Permanent

  • Salary: £38,934 - £40,503 per annum 

Job overview

In the new post of Junior Communications Officer, you’ll work on everything from major campaigns, exciting marketing projects and filming and editing compelling content for digital channels. You’ll do something different every day – working across lots of different council services and priorities.  

Main duties of the job

You’ll have the opportunity to pitch your own ideas and generate your own content, and develop your communications skills and career in a fast-paced and collaborative team.  

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. 

You’ll come with some experience of delivering excellent communications, and a desire to develop your career in a local government environment. We won’t expect you to be the finished article, and you’ll have brilliant training and development opportunities to grow. And crucially, you’ll be creative – understanding how to cut through the noise and get noticed, rather than rely on the same-old tactics. 

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.
