Council communications – HoC job and a contract opportunity

A couple of interesting opportunities hit my inbox this week, so I thought I’d share them here in case anyone finds them useful.
First up, Reading Borough Council is looking for a full-time Head of Communications, based in Reading. Full information is here.
Secondly Georgia Turner from Bournemouth Borough Council is looking for someone to undertake a communications audit from now until March 2011. The audit is to identify opportunities for:

  • Financial efficiencies in council spend on print and online communications by identifying scope for rationalisation
  • Better value for money through an improved focus on corporate priorities by centralising staffing and spend
  • Strengthening the council’s reputation through better communications branding and quality control

Ideally they’d like some to be based within our team, at least part of the time. The role is to start immediately and complete by the end of March 2011. The full brief is here and if you can contact Georgia at
