Communications Executive

Location: Slough

Are you an amazing writer and editor wanting to make an impact in education? Can you adapt your writing style for multiple channels including social media, internal communications and corporate publications?

Joining our client as a Communications Executive, your focus will be to plan and deliver a wide range of high-quality and appropriately targeted communications content for both internal and external audiences. The role is pivotal in increasing awareness of our client and the impact of their work, engaging with policy makers and education experts but also ensuring that colleagues are well informed.

Our client is looking for a creative, skilled and talented writer who is able to turn their hand to different outlets with a love of all things social, with a good working knowledge and proven experience of writing creative copy and editing blogs, articles and news stories for internal and external use.

You will be editing the bi-monthly staff newsletter, developing content for the intranet, working with colleagues across the organisation to identify stories and gain international experience working on case studies, brochures and website content for audiences around the globe. Our client also has ambitious plans to develop more video content, so you’ll be creating storyboards and working with external producers as well.

Your technical background:

- Exceptional writing, editing and proofreading skills

- Experience of writing for a range of audiences and channels

- A track record of working with internal teams as a communications expert

- Experience of briefing and working with creative agencies and third-party suppliers

You’ll love this job, if:

- You enjoy writing!

- You’re good at relationship-building

- You can work efficiently and accurately - proofread, fact check, and edit your own copy as well as that of external contributors

- You are flexible and creative with strong communication skills

Bonus Points:

You don’t need to have worked in education or for a not for profit charity, but our client is eager to hear from you if you have. You may have held similar positions as a communications officer or internal communications executive, as a blogger or content writer or editor.

Why join our client?

They are a registered charity that has contributed evidence, in-depth knowledge, and research expertise to support the creation of an excellent education for all children and young people for over seventy years.
