Experienced internal communicator? Fancy setting up a brand new function? Been a trusted business advisor to senior stakeholders?

I'm working with an organisation based just outside Bristol to recruit a Head of Internal Communications & Employee Engagement. This is a rare opportunity for a passionate and experienced communicator to create an internal communications function, with a blank sheet of paper and engaged senior stakeholders, in a blended strategy and 'hands on' role.

In this integral role to the business, you'll work closely with the senior leadership team (predominantly the CEO) advising on all communication and employee engagement matters. You'll design and embed a compelling new strategy and communications that drives engagement and business performance. You'll set a budget, partner with relevant departments to deliver engagement surveys to ensure measurement, create recognition schemes, organise events and more.

The ideal candidate will have:
*Strong internal communications background with a track record of delivering effective messaging
*Gravitas and credibility to act as a trusted advisor to senior stakeholders
*Commercial awareness and an appreciation of key challenges that the employee population will face
*Exposure to a wide range of channels, including digital and social media, able to create content for a range of audiences
*Excellent project management skills, able to spin many plates and wear many hats!
*Experience in a multi-site operation or with non-office based workers would be desirable
*Degree qualified or equivalent with membership of a relevant professional body favourable

This excellent opportunity comes with a salary of £40,000 - £55,000 (dependent on experience, do still get in touch if your expectations are slightly higher) plus benefits including pension scheme, 22 days holiday + 1 for your birthday (and ability to buy/sell more), health cash plan and more. Easily commutable from South Wales and along the M4/M5, this is a great location with parking onsite.
