They will also ensure that communications work for the above two priority areas supports and aligns with the Foundation’s wider organisational strategy and corporate narrative, ensuring coherence in our external messaging.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrable first-class track record of developing and implementing integrated communications strategies and plans to communicate technical and complex information effectively to both specialist audiences and the public, blending the full range of communications disciplines. They will also have significant expertise and experience in planning and coordinating communications activities and content pipelines, using planning tools and working closely with communications matrix and functional teams. Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work flexibly in a dynamic and busy communications environment are essential to be a success in the role.
