Strategy and Narrative Officer
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is a newly created organisation that promotes competition for the benefit of consumers, both within and outside the UK, to make markets work well for consumers, businesses and the economy. Our work is complex and compelling and can benefit the lives of everyone in the UK – and for those who join us at this formative time it offers a uniquely exciting professional opportunity.
Our Strategy and Narrative Officer has an important role to play in articulating and communicating the purpose, achievements and objectives of our organisation. You’ll make a considerable contribution to the development of key policy documents such as our Annual Plan and Annual Report and ensure that our corporate narrative is clearly understood and represented by staff throughout the organisation. You’ll also look for other opportunities to promote our work and develop our reputation, identifying suitable speaking opportunities and supporting senior colleagues in speechwriting as required. This role involves significant liaison throughout CMA, often at a senior level, and you will have the opportunity to develop a comprehensive perspective of our work.
You should be able to demonstrate practical experience of supporting corporate strategy, backed up by a very high standard of communication skills, across a range of channels. It’s important that you can influence and persuade at all levels, ensuring that key strategic documents receive the right level of input from all parts of our organisation. Therefore the ability to establish strong professional relationships will be valuable, as will robust project management skills.
This role offers real scope for professional development and will suit an individual who is driven and ambitious. In the CMA you will discover a working environment where there is real emphasis on working together to deliver to the very highest standards. We have an excellent benefits package, including pension, and encourage a healthy work/life balance.
We are an equal opportunities employer.
