Client Side

If you're a comms professional who's looking for the kind of role which isn't just comms execution, but gives you the opportunity to really shape and provide consultancy to business stakeholders on what the best course of action to take. Really helping to define the approach, channels and creative/content strategy which will achieve the desired result from any communication. This could be just what you've been looking for.

The business we're representing has a lot of change communication programmes going on at the moment. They're covering many different bases including technology, service offerings to its customer base, the introduction of new products and services and also process base changes too.

This role will be acting as a business partner to those internal teams. Not just handling the execution of comms activities, but giving the guidance and direction necessary in order to achieve the right outcomes from each of these projects.

Your guidance will include ensuring things like tone of voice and language use is consistent, and the company's brand to both internal and external audiences is reflected in how communications come across.

Audiences will be a mix of internal and external, and comms executions will be multi-channel - really dependant on what you see as best and most effective to use in order to get the messages across in the best way.

The unit this will be joining is a team of 5 people, specialising in both internal and external comms projects and this role helping to tackle a lot of their change communications pieces.
