  • Produce comms activity planners that can be tracked - and feed these into wider Programme plans

  • Create and deliver communications that engage the audience using a range of innovative channels where possible – but at the least leveraging proven channels relevant for the business area.

  • Have the supporting skills that enable delivery: writing, creativity, collateral production, planning and organisation.

  • Manage internal and external suppliers as required to deliver channel content

  • Delivery of communications plans for designated change projects – this is subject to change and may flex according to the needs of the business.

To qualify for the role you must have

  • 3+ years communications & engagement experience minimum

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Excellent writing capabilities, project management and organisation skills
