Experienced internal communications professional? You can help create a greener UK

Join us in the resource revolution

Whatever part you play at Suez, you’ll be doing something amazing. We need people in all kinds of roles to help us solve tomorrow’s challenges. By joining us, you’ll be contributing to a business that’s working for the planet’s future – one that’s not afraid to innovate and introduce new solutions. In return for your hard work, we’ll give you a fulfilling career within a supportive team. Here, you’ll be free to be yourself and develop in your way.

What will I be doing as Senior Internal Communications Manager?

It’s a chance to put your talents to the test in a stimulating role, where you will lead the team responsible for compelling internal communications that help our 5,000 engaged employees put SUEZ’s strategy into action.  

A key tenet of the role is to help develop the company’s strategic narrative, by producing a compelling business story that explains our background, vision for the future and how employees can contribute to this.

You will be part of our 21-strong communications department, in which you will manage a small, creative, team of internal communications professionals.

As a member of the department’s senior management  team, you will also be required to attend and input into management meetings and the strategy for the department. Reporting to the Director of Communications, the role is based at our modern and vibrant Maidenhead head office in Berkshire, where you will be part of a close knit, supportive department with a dynamic but friendly culture.

You will be responsible for managing all of the company’s internal communications channels and events, and for directly counselling the CEO and other senior leaders, with a focus on ensuring that employees can support leadership decisions; the company strategy; and understand how these impact upon their work.

The Senior Internal Communications Manager is responsible for developing internal communications strategies for each business division and must therefore be able to counsel, and have dialogue with, staff at all levels.

What are the requirements? (experience and qualifications)

You’ll be creative, but have an eye for detail, and a background in the recycling and waste industry isn’t essential, as we’ll give you all the training you need. However, you must be both strategic and passionate in your approach to internal communications. A CIPR diploma in internal communications or qualification in behavioral change is desirable and you will have at least ten years’ experience in a relevant field.

You must have experience of working with a diverse range of stakeholders, including senior leaders.

You will have excellent time and project management skills, and be able to work to deadlines. 

A true team player, you’ll thrive on working with your fellow colleagues and bring a creative, collaborative approach to everything you do.

The role will involve travelling to different parts of the UK, so the candidate must hold a current driving license and be willing to travel.


Our approach

With a raft of benefits, family-friendly policies and excellent remuneration packages, there’s never been a better time to join SUEZ recycling and recovery UK.

We are proud of our fantastic opportunities for personal growth and development, as we continue to build and grow our forward-thinking company, and you could play a key part in our success.

A friendly and supportive place where you will love to work, we believe creativity, clear communication and our drive for excellence are the keys to our success. We also expect our people to be enthusiastic, engaged and responsible. If you share our thinking – and have the qualities we’re looking for – you could play a big part in our dedicated team.
