The job is a senior Board level post. You will work closely with a range of nationally recognised organisations involved in the wider Olympic legacy. The communications responsibilities involve the oversight of a busy press office, public affairs, as well as a corporate and internal communication remit.

The successful delivery of this project will be a key challenge for the next post-holder.
You will be a senior professional, with a wide range of skills that can be demonstrated across all 3 of the key delivery areas: communication, marketing and strategy. You will have an awareness of the relevant issues and have a depth of personal experience operating in one or more related areas. You will have a track record of relevant delivery. Further, you will be able to demonstrate experience of shaping and managing wider organisational strategies.
You will be comfortable operating at a senior level, supporting and influencing senior decision makers often at speed, under pressure on politically sensitive issues. You will be comfortable in representational work, potentially on public or media platforms.
