We’re looking for a candidate to join us as a Communications and Marketing Officer, working with the council’s communications and marketing team.

- You will promote events and news stories by writing engaging news releases for the media, using the team’s media monitoring system to log and evaluate media coverage for the council.  

- You will be part of the team’s media rota, taking media enquiries and drafting media statements for the council.  

- You will generate photo and video content using the in-house video editing equipment.  

- You will keep the team informed about relevant communications and marketing activity happening in other public sector organisations, recommending how we can use this to develop our campaigns.
