The Role
End-to-end management of projects.
It’s an all encompassing role. You’ll be managing, both on and offline Employee Communications projects at the highest level, in control from start to successful completion. Although your focus will be Employer Communications, you may have the opportunity to work across our other two specialisms, Corporate and Financial Communications and Brand. We would play to your strengths and at the same time help you develop knowledge and new skills in other areas. Where you’re not so experienced we will help you.

You will have extensive prior experience of delivering internal communications projects and employee engagement campaigns at this level to provide the highest standards of service. Ideally you will have managed Graduate campaigns, EVP or other attraction, recruitment and on-boarding projects. You will be able to facilitate senior level meetings, articulate your views, recognise what’s important to achieve a successful outcome, add value to the relationship, whilst empathising with clients through the more challenging situations.

In this role, you will be able to develop your skills, work on the development and roll out of one of the largest employee engagement projects at the agency and be responsible for enhancing your knowledge and skills in this area.
