This role will enable us to deliver a consistent, high standard of communications in a timely and co-ordinated way.

We are working in strange and unpredictable times so you will need an open-mind and the intellectual capability to actively contribute from day one in a fast paced environment.
You will be equally confident delivering integrated plans and campaigns that reach our supporters, the public and corporate stakeholders with a strong narrative that cuts through and drives share of voice.
