Taking on this pivotal role at a time of bold transformation, you will be responsible for delivering exciting, innovative and standard-setting approaches to social media.
With a highly skilled and creative team in place, HMRC is proud to be a leader of digital communications within government. By 2020 we will be among the most digitally advanced tax authorities in the world. As we deliver our ambitious digital transformation, making it easier than ever for customers to take control of their tax affairs online, we are keen to pioneer innovative approaches to communications. Social media will be at the heart of our success.
As Head of Social Media, you will bring further innovation and new ideas to HMRC. Driving forward creative ways to engage stakeholders and customers through social media, you will lead a team responsible for delivering social media support and campaigning, as well as design for internal corporate content. Crucially, you will develop and oversee delivery of the external digital and social element of our communications strategy.
Widely recognised for your expertise, you will work with partners across the whole organisation, and contribute to cross government digital projects and groups. As a thought leader and senior consultant on external digital and social media engagement, you’ll advise our senior leaders across HMRC and within the Corporate Communications team. Setting high standards and never losing sight of the need to deliver value and minimise risk, you’ll enhance our reputation for excellence - and your own.
A senior social media and content design specialist, your track record spans both campaigning and regular publishing. Across digital and social media, you have proven editorial experience and a demonstrable flair for managing projects, programmes and stakeholders. Your team will be responsible for bringing industry best practice to the department, so we’ll expect you to be at the cutting edge of publishing social media. You will have planned, delivered and evaluated proactive, targeted campaigns. Crucially, you will also demonstrate excellent leadership skills.
Please note this is a fixed-term appointment of up to one year, to cover maternity leave. We will provide a training programme for your first three months, with various courses including an introduction to Government Communications. You’ll also benefit from flexible working opportunities.
