Job role
Officer

Full time

The coronavirus pandemic has touched every aspect of the work councils do, and we're on the front line as the country recovers. Businesses need support to get back on their feet, schools have reopened for children who have been stuck at home for months, and social care services are helping a growing number of vulnerable residents. Many services will not be the same, so good communications and engagement with residents and staff are more important than ever before.

We’re looking for enthusiastic and dedicated communications professionals to join our team. 

You could be a press officer who wants to do more campaigns, or maybe you’re great at social media and want to do more PR. You could even be an internal comms expert who wants to branch out. Regardless of your background, we need someone who can create engaging content for a range of publications and websites, and manage the council’s reputation through the press and social media.

We offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop new ones within a high-profile organisation.

From the world-famous sights of Greenwich town centre in the west, to Thamesmead in the east, from the Greenwich Peninsula in the north to Eltham in the south, our communities are diverse. We want our workforce to reflect and respect this diversity and bring richness, productivity and innovation.

We’re based in Woolwich, but the role will comprise a mix of office and home working.

If you’re ready to be part of our exciting journey, please apply now, or contact us to discuss the job.

Closing Date: 7th October 2020
