Head of Internal Communications and Engagement, MS Society
Job type: Full-time
Salary: £44,695 – £49,076
Closing date: 26 Jan 2018 at 9am.
This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of an ambitious organisation where we put people affected by MS at the centre of everything we do, and it’s this commitment that unites us across the UK.
Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure, but until then, we will do all that we can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone.
We have a strategy that is based on what people affected by MS have told us is important to them, and it gives us a clear and determined focus. We have big aspirations – and in recent years have achieved big things with our award-winning campaigns – and we need to retain the talented people we already have and attract brilliant new people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
Achieving a high level of engagement with our people is key to achieving our ambitious goals and delivering our key change programmes together. Communication is a big part of that but there are many other elements to successful engagement too.
The Head of Internal Communications and Engagement will have a central role in ensuring all our people feel engaged, valued and well informed; and have a voice which is heard.
A key part of that is to continually improve our engagement and communications approach, including the use of new technologies and innovations. This role will also develop and deliver the annual engagement and communications plan.
The role will be responsible for one direct report and the internal communication resources such as our intranet site and internal communication publications and channels, as well as our staff survey.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced and talented, digitally savvy employee engagement and communications person with initiative and vision.
