The Department for International Trade (DIT) has overall responsibility for developing, co-ordinating, and delivering a new trade and investment policy for the UK. This includes negotiating Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and market access around the world, global trade promotion and finance, and inward and outward business investment. We are a department for the whole of the UK, and we work globally to provide a full range of services on trade. 

Our work is at the heart of the Government’s agenda, as we begin to operate the UK’s independent trading system and continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting businesses, building resilient supply chains, and working to keep trade flowing across borders. 

This is an important and challenging newly created role where you will provide best in class digital and content advice to our Secretary of State and wider Ministerial team. You will be responsible for creating a new data strategy for the Communication and Marketing function. You will have a flair for sourcing and interpreting data and have a deep understanding of digital communications to source new data. You will also be responsible for our social channels and be brand champion, having oversight of written materials that are shared globally.

To be successful in the role, you will be an engaging leader who will set a compelling vision for your team by creating an inclusive culture. This exciting opportunity requires exceptional knowledge of design and brand management coupled with digital and social communications experience. You will be well versed in data mining and understand how to use data to drive better outcomes across the communication function.  

Join us, and you will play an instrumental role in defining and delivering the most ambitious projects. With the freedom to innovate and ample opportunity to network, this is a role that will provide a myriad of fascinating opportunities. Further enhanced by a generous benefits package and flexible working arrangements (we are also open to a job share arrangement), you are sure to excel in our forward-thinking team.
