Do you fancy doing my job – or strictly speaking the East Sussex part of it?
Well here’s an opportunity. I’m moving onto exciting pastures new next month, so the job of Head of Communications at East Sussex County Council has just been advertised.
It’s a great local government communications role based in Lewes, East Sussex. Here’s the full advert:
This is an exciting time for communications and marketing at East Sussex County Council.
Following a major review, we launched our new communications team last year. We aim to provide a modern, flexible and responsive service which helps to deliver the Council’s priorities across all channels using the latest communications and social marketing techniques. We have a client-focussed team that has recently been awarded the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA) Communications Management Standard accreditation.
The Council works in partnership with Medway Council as part of the Bluewave communications partnership. This helps provide resilience for both teams, sharing campaigns and experience and developing opportunities for providing communications services to other local public sector organisations..
We are seeking an experienced communications and marketing professional to lead the East Sussex team and share responsibility for developing and managing the partnership with Medway. If you combine experience of delivering strategic, evidence based communications and marketing activity that has real impact, with leading and developing teams, this could be the next role for you.
