Strategic Communications Manager, EU Exit (SIO)
Are you a communications specialist with excellent experience across the communications disciplines working in complex organisational settings? Do you want to apply your expertise to some of the most important issues facing the UK and play a direct role in shaping the country’s future?
We are looking to recruit a number of talented strategic communicators to join the Home Office Communications Directorate on communications activity to support the UK’s successful withdrawal from the European Union.
Successful candidates will display a blend of political insight and intelligence, strategic clarity of thinking and hold good influencing and collaboration skills. You will be expected to forge strong relationships with senior officials and colleagues across government, as well as a range of partners and external stakeholders. You will have experience of joining up communications activity across disciplines to reach audiences with credible, useful material that builds trust and engagement.
You will be expected to develop, plan and implement communications strategies that deliver measurable change. You will therefore need demonstrable experience across the communications mix and to have the personal impact and personal resilience to bring people with you.
The Home Office offers excellent career progression prospects and invests in ongoing professional development. Successful candidates will be entitled to a competitive pension and benefits package, and have access to extensive professional support networks, such as the Government Communications Service, just, as you would expect from a large, progressive employer like the Civil Service.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity and inclusion at the Home Office. We are committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive workplace where all our people are able to bring their whole selves to work and perform at their best.
