About Communications Manager

Fixed Term for up to 6 months (secondments considered)

This post will support the work of the local resilience forum, and will be hosted by Leicestershire County Council.

If you work in communications, you know that we're used to managing the odd crisis along with the business as usual. But this year's been off-the-chart.

Agencies across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland have been working together since February to manage our response to the coronavirus pandemic. We know there's still a long way to go and many more communications challenges to face.

So we're investing in our capacity. So far, the communications response has been successfully delivered by our partner agencies coming together and working alongside each other day-in-day-out. What we need now is more resource to call on and drive through a dedicated programme of communication.

As a local resilience forum, we're looking for a proven communications leader. You'll know how to lead on strong, creative communications strategies - preferably that change behaviour and culture. You'll know how to navigate the public sector and build strong relationships and credibility. You don't mind getting stuck into complex issues - and can emerge with simple, effective narrative.

Most of all - you'll be willing to work with the talented and determined officers across the partnership. Roll up your sleeves, pick up the phone, turn your camera on - and do whatever it takes to get the job done.

This role involves some out of hours working and on-call duties, which will be shared with a wider team.
