Job Title: Press & Communications Manager
Working For: Sheffield City Region Combined Authority
Salary: £42,683 - £45,591 per annum
This is an exciting time to be part of the team working directly with Mayor Dan Jarvis, the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA), and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Devolution has never been higher on the political agenda, and the MCA and LEP are playing an increasingly important role in shaping our economy. From transport to housing, from business growth to skills, SCR has a great story to tell.
To help us deliver this we are looking for an excellent Press and Communications Manager to help us fulfil this mission. The role will be responsible for ensuring our work is heard by the right people, in the right places and at the right time, among regional, national and international audiences.
An experienced communications manager, you will provide leadership and creativity to drive SCR’s external profile, devising and executing high-quality campaigns and reinforcing our strategic narrative.
You will be responsible for the smooth running of the press and communications team, leading officers to deliver high-performance and an excellent service to stakeholders.
A key member of Strategic Corporate Affairs Directorate, you will work collaboratively with the Communications and Marketing team and other directorates.
The SCR faces many challenges, and the MCA and its partners are tackling these head on to help create a more successful economy for the people who live and work here. If you want to be part of this, and have the skills, experience, and successful track record we need, then this could be the job for you.
In return, we offer a competitive salary, access to a local Government Pension Scheme and the chance to be part of an organisation where you can really make a difference.
Located in a vibrant city centre location, we are well-placed for transport links and encourage employees to take advantage of a range of benefits, including active travel facilities. We believe in a healthy work/life balance.
In light of COVID-19, SCR is following government guidelines on travel and working arrangements.
