Innovation, transforming lives and value for money – just a snapshot of our current priorities. And by helping people live longer in their homes, securing funding for new, multi-million roads and being named the most productive council in the country for the second year in a row, we’re seeing results.
But there’s still work to do, including supporting the delivery of new homes and infrastructure and manage growth. To help with this challenge, we’re looking for a media and communications professional who can create content for press, broadcast and trade media. 
Our media, communications and digital team is responsible for:
- Proactive media relations – telling the council’s story – and running a traditional press desk, managing journalists’ queries and helping to manage the council’s reputation
- Social and commercial marketing campaigns
- Engaging stakeholders, staff and managers
- Creative design for print, digital, social and video
- Customer-focused digital services    
As a member of our busy team, you will bring your professional expertise to a range of communications activities. We’re looking for someone with experience in a press office or media environment, with an eye for a story and a grasp of print, broadcast, digital and social media.          
Are you right for the job? We ask all our team members to:
• Be original – crafting compelling content and striving to explore new ideas and better ways to achieve our aims
• Always place our audiences at the heart of your work 
• Be responsible for the council’s reputation and always act in its best interests
• Be responsible for the council’s money – acting in a business-like way 
• Be positive, flexible and open to new ideas and ways of working
• Be determined and able to face challenges head-on - and work collaboratively with a broad range of services across the council - influencing people to get results
If you’re keen to find out more, please read the job description and person specification.   
We'll be interviewing on 9 & 10 October.
