Communications Adviser, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea – Grenfell
Location: Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Town Hall, Hornton Street
Closing date: 14 November 2017 at 11.59 PM
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is expanding its communications team to support the response to the Grenfell Tower fire.
We need to rehouse hundreds of people, support thousands more, and rebuild trust with an entire community.
Our new Leader and Chief Executive recognise the Council needs to work in new ways and form new partnerships, both in the area where the fire occurred and across the whole Borough.
To help achieve this, the Council needs to strengthen its communications and community engagement teams, working across media relations, digital, stakeholder and internal communications.
Local or central government experience is welcomed but more important is common sense, empathy and the ability to grasp complex issues quickly and explain them clearly and sensitively to a wide range of audiences. We also need people who can engage with people outside the Council and feed their views constructively into our work. The following roles are available on one-year contracts:
Capable, experienced communications practitioners who can create high-quality communications products for a range of audiences using varied tools and platforms including digital. Key qualities:
- An ability to grasp complex issues quickly and translate them into simple, accurate, accessible language.
- An ability to understand an audience’s point of view and anticipate the impact communications activity will have.
