About Communications Officer

This post will particuarly support the delivery of public health messaging as we respond to and recover from the coronavirus pandemic.


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 dedicated resource to help deliver a programme of COVID-related communications.

As a local resilience forum, we're looking for a communications officer to deliver a range of campaigns - both online and offline - to change behaviour and manage reputation.


You'll have a track record with creative communications and you'll be hands on, eager to get things done and willing to work with people.

This is a crucial time for public services. This is your opportunity to grow your skills and networks.

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

This post will be lined managed by the vacant Communications Manager post and part of the partnership's communications cell, chaired by Jo Morrison, Head of Communications and Digital at Leicestershire County Council.
