Senior Communications and Engagement Officer
£17 per hour
Full Time Contract

Novax Recruitment is actively seeking a Senior Communications and Engagement Officer based in Chichester. This is a temporary role with scope for extension. We can accommodate partially remote working for this role, but the candidate will be required to attend the Chichester office occasionally for meetings. For this reason we are only considering candidates from commutable distances.

As a Senior Communications and Engagement Officer you will be responsible for establishing and delivering the communication strategies for several key technology and service transformation projects that are either underway or on the horizon.

You will own, shape and deliver campaigns and engagement activities across a range of channels, focusing on internal and staff engagement, as well as including local and national media, digital, and social media. We are looking for a good 'all-rounder', but particularly interested in candidates who have experience in transformation or project-based communications.

You will lead and co-ordinate communication and engagement activities for several key projects, managing the delivery of complex messages, guidance and progress updates via the most appropriate channels, advising on the most efficient and effective way for the project sponsors to achieve their communication objectives. You will also need to deliver high profile engagement activity as well as develop campaigns for major behaviour changes.

We are looking for a candidate educated to degree level, as well as a high level of experience working within communications. Public sector experience would be desired also. We are also looking for someone with relevant advanced theoretical and organisational knowledge of communication platforms, procedures and policies and understanding how they may impact on the development and content of campaigns, for example, knowledge of drafting newsletters, website content, adverts and social media posts. Professional understanding of the latest communications and engagement methods, channels and metrics.
