Job Details

You have a UK port to thank for the screen you’re reading this advert on. Enjoy your coffee or tea this morning? You’ve got a UK port to thank for that too. In fact, with UK ports handling 95% of our trade with the world we rely on our ports for an awful lot. But ports are much more than just gateways for trade. They’re bases for renewable energy projects and a lot of other activities. And they’re also catalysts for investment, jobs and prosperity all around Britain’s coast. You probably didn’t know that. Not enough people do.

So we – as the trade associations for the sector – know we need to do something about that. Doing that means upping our communications game. That’s not just with external audiences. It’s also within the sector too – so that experience and the best ideas on vital topics like safety get through to the widest audience. We need to communicate in new ways with more impact. So we need a new person. Someone who can bring new thinking, new skills and bags of enthusiasm. We need a Creative Communications Executive.

This is a unique, brand new opportunity to grow the effectiveness and reach of three trade associations – UK Major Ports Group (“UKMPG”), British Ports Association (“BPA”) & Port Skills and Safety (“PSS”). You will join us in representing the interests of our members in a sector which plays a fundamental role in transport and the economy. Ports handle 95% of the UK’s international trade and the profile of the sector has never been higher.

You will play a crucial part in supporting all three organisations to up our communications game with external stakeholders and within the ports sector. Key to this – and the central goal of this new role – will be increasing the impact of the messaging from all three organisations. You will do this by developing the ‘look and feel’ of each organisation’s communications and increasing our effective use of social and rich media channels.
