Salary : £36,711 – £39,774
Location: Newham Dockside
Closing date: 20 November 2020 (12pm)
We have an amazingly diverse world.
You can bring it together.
Our borough may not be the biggest in London, but it’s the most diverse. Our 350,000-strong population is made up of vibrant communities that give Newham incredible life and energy. As a Council, we’re dedicated to connecting with every single individual and putting them at the heart of all we do. We are seeking to build a team that genuinely reflects the communities we serve, to ensure that all our policy and communications work understands and speaks directly to our residents and their life experiences. Our communications are absolutely crucial. And their success will be down to you.
As Digital Communications Officer, you’ll join a freshly re-structured team within a highly motivated council. Together, you’ll aim to engage every resident in an extraordinary area. As we shape our borough and the future, we want to hear voices that haven’t been heard before. And we want to tell the world about our work – from delivering badly needed housing to giving children and young people exciting opportunities. We’re proud to campaign for a better future for all. Your skills will make all the difference. Here’s what your role will involve.
Working as part of a large Communications and Campaigns team, you’ll help to translate strategy into output. Your aim? To improve the Council’s image through multiple channels and interesting, high quality content. It’s all about building a better picture of our ambitions, work and policies among residents, businesses and visitors. That means developing our websites, managing the flow of contact to social media platforms and creating clear, concise copy.
Degree-educated (or equivalent) or working towards a relevant professional qualification, you’re already digitally savvy. You can create and manage websites, use content management systems and draw on knowledge of web, design and digital software products. Because we want everyone to be able to access our content, you’ll also understand relevant accessibility standards. And thanks to your brilliant people skills, you can work with a wide range of stakeholders, influence, present and build strong relationships.
