London NW1

c.£35,000 - £45,000 (one year fixed term contract)

Right at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway, Network Rail own, operate and maintain the rail network that the whole nation relies on. We’re involved in some of the most ambitious engineering projects across Britain. As a result of investment there are one million more trains and half a billion more passenger journeys compared to 10 years ago. Despite this biggest investment in the railways since Victorian times the rail industry will continue to have to work hard to meet the rising demand we face. . We’re rising to the challenge though – and so can you.

Focusing on London and the South East, this exciting new post will see you play an integral role in devising and delivering communications plans to reach and influence some of the millions of people that use trains and train stations each day across London & the South East.

You will also be responsible for managing communications plans to support the delivery of billions of pounds worth of infrastructure investment.

This is a fast paced, passenger focused and challenging environment. You’ll work in close partnership with communications colleagues and senior management across London and the South East region to help ensure we deliver effective communications aligned to our strategy for London and the South, corporate strategy and business objectives.

An energetic and creative team player, you’re able to work effectively across a large and complex operating company. You also have what it takes to help identify stories, plan and communicate integrated communications activities with colleagues to tell  the railway’s story for  London and the South East. .  You’ll have experience within corporate communications, preferably with an operational bias, and you’ll need to demonstrate the ability to understand complex issues and present them clearly and persuasively. The role will require the ability to manage incidences and issues and work across a range of communications channels.
