Seeking a communications and engagement professional

Our 15 projects are moving into the delivery stage and there are varying degrees of expertise and resource for communications within the projects. There is now an opportunity for greater impact across the portfolio with a new strategic plan and central resource to implement it. This resource will support the achievements of the Board’s objectives and work directly with the projects to inform and amplify the impact of their continuing communications work.

The foundations are already in place so outcomes will build on the work already done to bring greater understanding and participation to our targeted communities.

Those that are interested should be a natural ambassador and spokesperson for Hereford – local knowledge and understanding of our local community is vital.

We anticipate a 3 – 4 day mobilisation period followed by approximately two days per month. Some flexibility to work patterns would be required as activity type and dates will fluctuate.

This contract is anticipated to be for one year.
