Head of Communications - Want to work on a great cause
We are seeking a Head of Communications for one of the most caring political parties who champion green issues. The role is being offered as a contract initially for 3 months, but could equally be permanent.
The communications team of this party deals not only with the press but also social media, campaigns and design in head office. External communications need to work with and support internal comms to some 50,000 members. Their content needs to get the right tone, and also the right details, whether about the composition of a council or the appointment of a new head of the European Commission. The head of communications role is highly challenging, but also an exciting one.
You will need to strategically lead the party with communications. It is not primarily operational – it won’t involve large amounts of contact with media, hands-on social management or the campaign details, certainly not day-to-day. The Head of Comms needs to develop and maintain systems to make the most of this diverse, constantly changing network of people across the continent, both paid staff, elected people and volunteers.
You’ll be comfortable with politics and know about campaigns, the current fast-shifting
political landscape. You’ll need an acute political antenna for the big questions, and the ability
to sit in a room with senior people from the BBC and ITV, with newspaper editors and political
journalists, brief a new social influencer who’s starting out with a whole new social media format or advise campaigners on how to really make a difference. This is a varied and challenging role for someone who would love to work for a party that is really championing change.
The role is being offered as a temp contract and to start as soon as possible, day rate of £220-£300 or pro-rata salary of £55-£70k. If you are keen to work for a party that is dear to your heart and be at the buzzing heartbeat of the sea of change this is the perfect role for you.
Please apply online or send your CV and cover note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please call Justyne on 07971 361206.
