Why we need you

We have an exciting opportunity for an Internal Communications Manager to contribute to the strategic planning and delivery of organisational-wide internal communications activity which informs, engages and inspires our staff to beat cancer.

If you have extensive experience of internal communications in a complex organisation, top-tier project and stakeholder management, experience of managing a calendar of internal campaigns and events, and a passion for the difference strategic internal communications can make to our people's experience, then apply today.

What I will be doing?

Make an impact every day by…

  • Being part of a team delivering org-wide internal comms activity, taking responsibility for areas as designated by the Internal Comms Lead

  • Working closely with other teams across the organisation and with senior stakeholders, developing and delivering effective internal communications plans for priority projects at CRUK, in line with our broader corporate strategy

  • Working alongside the team to ensure that internal comms activity is planned into our internal comms calendar, and that messages to the organisation are prioritised accordingly with a consistent narrative

  • Working with our trading internal comms and volunteering comms teams to ensure that we are consistent in our messaging and process when sharing cross-organisational messages

  • Providing active leadership within the internal communications team, managing team members to deliver first class internal communications support for CRUK

  • Using audience insight and data to proactively feed into the development and evaluation of our internal comms and engagement strategy, led by the Internal Comms Lead, and drive improvements in channels and events accordingly

  • In line with the internal communications strategy and in collaboration with the Internal Comms Lead, managing and driving the longer-term roadmap for our events and campaigns to ensure maximum benefit to our people, increasing staff engagement and sharing of information

What skills are you looking for?

You'll bring to the role…

  • Influence: the ability to influence senior members of staff, and instill confidence in your decision making. You'll have the ability to hold your own and push back, whilst maintaining good working relationships.

  • Content creation: significant experience of content creation and copywriting, whether that's delivering yourself, through your team, or through commissioning other teams

  • Strategic thinking: you'll be a strategic thinker, who uses feedback and data to inform improvements

  • Communications skills: you'll have excellent communications skills, and deal with complex and sensitive information in a professional way, always showing a high level of self-awareness

  • Positive attitude: positive and can-do, ambitious in your desire to get things done to a high standard and to drive positive impact, with the ability to motivate others and get buy in from stakeholders across the charity

  • Decision making: experience of planning and prioritising internal comms projects and messaging, as well as prioritising and planning the workload of yourself and others

  • Line management: Experience of management is desirable, demonstrated either through line management, matrix management or temp management roles
