An excellent opportunity to join Brent Council's Communications team  

Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here. 

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

The Post

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join our small high-performing team and work for the LGC Council of the Year.

As Communications Assistant you will provide support and assistance across all aspects of communications. From writing press releases for the media or new stories for the YourBrentMagazine to creating memorable videos and social media content, no two days are the same. As well as the day-to-day support functions that need to be carried out, including raising invoices and various admin tasks, you will get a wide ranging experience across a number of communications and digital marketing disciplines and be involved in evaluating the impact of multi-media communications campaigns.

The role is key to ensuring our high performing team continues to work well and is a great opportunity to develop your own experience, skills and knowledge in a fast moving communications environment. If you are keen to work at the heart of an ambitious and forward-looking council, Brent’s communications team could be the place for you. 

The Person

You will have top-notch organisational skills and the ability to multi task to be able to keep on top of everything that’s going on in a fast moving team. You will be positive and energetic with a ‘can do’ attitude and will relish variety and be comfortable juggling competing priorities. You will be self-motivated with excellent communication skills, whether that’s over the phone, through email or face to face, so first-rate written and verbal English skills are vital.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you. 

Closing Date: 30 May 2021 (23:00)
