This is an exciting time to be part of the team working directly with Mayor Dan Jarvis, the Sheffield City Region Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA), and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Devolution has never been higher on the political agenda, and the MCA and LEP are playing an increasingly important role in shaping our economy. From transport to housing, from business growth to skills, SCR has a great story to tell. We have ambitions to deliver recovery and renewal for people, businesses and places across South Yorkshire after the COVID pandemic.
To help us achieve this we need a highly skilled and experienced communications professional to support the Mayor as part of the Communications and Marketing team. If you have outstanding communications skills, from speechwriting to social media, from op eds to video messages, and can operate effectively in a political environment, then this could be the job for you.
If you are up for the challenge, have a proven track record of delivering work to the highest standard – can manage and inspire a team to do the same – then we’d like to hear from you.
In return, we offer a competitive salary, access to a local Government Pension Scheme and the chance to be part of an organisation where you can really make a difference.
Located in a vibrant city centre location, we are well-placed for transport links and encourage employees to take advantage of the active travel facilities we have such as bike storage and shower/changing facilities. We believe in a healthy work/life balance.
