Job Description –
We are now looking for an innovative and creative individual to join our Communications Directorate. You will support the development and management of a comprehensive and complex multi-agency communication and engagement strategy aligned to a programme that promotes the WMCA’s strategic objectives.
The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority working with partners to deliver a stronger West Midlands, with a focus on skills, innovation, transport, economic development and regeneration. Individual Councils and Local Enterprise Partnerships will still deliver services and retain their identity but on the big decisions we will have the resources to work together.
This is an exciting time for the West Midlands – the Commonwealth Games will be here in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350m housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.
Against a backdrop of a uniquely challenging and evolving environment, we are looking for the right people to ensure we can meet the demands of delivering an ambitious agenda that aims to build a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands. All our roles truly have an impact on the whole of our region.
About the Role
As a key member of the communications directorate you will develop and deliver a range of marketing strategies and multi-channel promotional campaigns for the West Midlands Combined Authority. Engaging with partners across the region you will maximise public awareness of the WMCA business priorities and the brand.
Who we Need
As a communications and marketing expert, you will be experienced in delivering high profile projects with our partners, which maximise usage of various media resources.
You will be a driven, creative individual who can make and sustain key relationships with partners and stakeholders from all areas and can think more broadly about wider outcomes that helps improve the quality of life for people.
The role requires excellent communication and interpersonal skills, good organisation and time management and the ability to multitask and prioritise projects under deadline pressures.
Demonstrable experience in a similar role is essential.
In return for your hard work and commitment, we will reward you with a range of competitive and attractive benefits.
How to Apply
Please provide detailed information in your application outlining your suitability for the post and ensure it is submitted by the closing date.
