Communications & Media Officer
Salary: £29,323 - £31,601 per annum
37 hours per week.
Based at Guildhall in Bath
Bath & North East Somerset Council is looking for a creative Communications & Media Officer to help deliver its messages and engage with communities via social media, video, online and print/broadcast media.
We believe that great communication is vital to ensure the public can access the services they need, and we’re maximising our use of social media to achieve this.
As part of a small, friendly and creative team, you’ll have a key role in liaising with colleagues across the Council on proactive communications campaigns; briefing senior directors and Cabinet members on emerging issues, and responding to enquiries from local, regional and national journalists – often working to tight deadlines.
We’re looking for someone with the creative spark who’s enthusiastic about coming up with innovative ideas which push the boundaries across a range of media channels and has the energy to carry them through to completion.
If you have excellent writing skills across a range of media; experience of using social media in a professional capacity and can make sense of complex information to present it in plain English; full of creative ideas which capture the imagination, and work well under pressure – then we’re keen to hear from you.
You’ll be based in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath – with the opportunity to work flexibly around the rest of Bath and North East Somerset.
