Our Client, a London PR Agency is looking for a Communication Manager to sit within the Brand & Communications team. Working with the Account Directors and alongside the planning and project teams, the Comms Manager has responsibility for delivering campaigns and content across key accounts.
This role is specifically focused on designing and delivering employee-facing campaigns filled with multi-media content. There is an always-on creative requirement and the role is heavily weighted on campaign and content creation.
The ideal person will have an internal comms background and have worked on creative, campaign, channels and content side of the work more than the HR Business Partner side. Most likely from a background in social, PR, or corporate comms with a great understanding of building and delivering campaigns.
You will have great experience working with the live/events channel, and have been challenged to pivot a lot of traditional comms work on-line to work for remote audiences.
Working with the planning team, agree stakeholder planning processes and manage the reporting plans needed for deliverables in the account. Work into the AD on client set-up and reporting. Oversee delivery plans throughout the life cycle of the project.
Creative Comms & Campaigns
Working with the broader comms team, develop great ideas to bring comms solutions to life in their way. Our full team, at all levels, work hands on and pitch-in to dream up real world solutions for our clients that focus on impact and maximum engagement. There is a permanent requirement to find solutions and creative ideas across a full range of comms services; campaign ideas, engagement initiatives, change programmes, copy writing and all-round content production fit for multiple channels. As everyone is working remotely right now there is an increased focus on digital, film and social content for clients. Experience of digital thinking is vital in this role.
Presenting & Pitching
The Comms Manager will play a part in the overall pitch process - bringing insights and ideas, contributing to the pitch development content and when needed, presenting as part of the pitch team.
The ability to move between different client accounts, and therefore different briefs, needs and outputs is part of the job. A flexible style and working on changing requirements throughout the day is needed.
Your Experience - essential
Have experience, either working agency side or in-house, as a comms manager. You know what 'good' looks like and have a strong portfolio of campaign work that you have led from the briefing stage through to delivery.
You will have loads of experience designing and managing a channels plan, including a track record of creating/managing/re-positioning digital and social channels, alongside content management and briefing in production needs. A full working knowledge of print and production across the full sweep of creative services is needed.
Good copy skills are a given. Brilliant with people, strong presentation skills, working on deadline and a solid planning background is essential.
Your Experience - good to have
You will have an interest in brands, consumer trends and popular culture. This includes social media, digital services and the UK print media/news cycle. A willingness to consistently develop and stay up to date with trends in Internal Comms, Employee Engagement and Employee Culture is needed. We don't specialise by sector so it's important that you proactively take the time to research any sector you're working with and immerse yourself into a client's business, be that a small biz or a giant corporate.
