Minimum Requirements

We’re looking for a story-teller. Someone with excellent writing skills and the know-how to find the stories that will help bring the business priorities, brand and values to life in an engaging and accessible way.

We want someone who's great with people - who can build strong relationships across the business, instil confidence in the most cynical, stand up to the most strident and bring the right blend of helpfulness and focus to the role. And perhaps most importantly we want someone who is looking to get fully involved, try new things and roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.

So if you’ve got strong writing, creative and organisational skills as well as a strong track record of providing internal communications support within a large, professional services company and are looking for your next challenge in a complex, fast-moving and ever-evolving company, this could well be just up your street.

Preferred Qualifications

A good knowledge of Word, PowerPoint and Adobe Creative Suite including Indesign and Photoshop.
