Are you passionate about public service and want your communications to make a difference? We’re looking for a senior communication and engagement officer who can lead on high-impact campaigns that inform residents and businesses about the issues that matter in Croydon and involve them in bringing about positive change. Working with colleagues across the council, politicians, and our partners, you could be working on some of our major campaigns – including Don’t Mess With Croydon and Choose Your Future – targeting your communications based on insight and evaluation. The team also support major regeneration in Croydon – a massive £5.25bn investment that will strengthen the local economy and develop major new infrastructure – helping to make sure everyone can share in the benefits of growth. The successful candidate will be enthusiastic and self-motivated, with a proven track record in delivering integrated communications plans. You’ll enjoy finding creative solutions to meet our objectives and translating complex issues into engaging content that works across print and digital channels. You’ll also be confident engaging with residents and partners face-to-face and through social media. You should ideally possess a communications or marketing qualification and a good working knowledge of local government. In return you will be joining a proactive, professional and supportive team positioned in the office of the chief executive at the heart of an ambitious council. No week will ever be the same - your work will be varied, interesting and challenging, with opportunities to use and develop your skills in all areas of communications. Croydon Council provide excellent benefits for its staff, including a brilliant Local Government Pension Scheme, work flexibility, generous leave entitlement of 28 plus days per year and numerous staff discounts.
