Closing date: 21 July 2017
The Metropolitan Police Service is the UK’s largest police service. We are here to protect London, one of the world’s most iconic cities.
Every day, we strive to keep over eight million residents safe by fighting crimes that range from murder to major terrorist incidents. No surprise that our press office is one of the busiest in the world. And you’ll be at the heart of it as our Media & Communications Manager.
You’ll be joining a highly skilled team that’s a trailblazer in its field. Together, you’ll tell the Met story: what we’re doing to keep communities safe; how people can protect themselves; and how we’re fighting crime. This involves planning and implementing clear two-way communications via print, digital and face-to-face channels.
It’s an exciting opportunity to create the very best content, both for proactive and reactive delivery through our own and other channels. Breaking issues could emerge at any moment – which may mean working outside normal office hours. With drive and high standards, you’ll be determined to excel. You’ll thrive on applying insight, ideas and best practice to bring continual improvement.
Degree-educated (or with a professional Communications qualification), you’ll have solid experience in a Communications team. With this background, you’ll have honed your news sense and developed excellent writing and editing skills. We’re also looking for an organised approach and project management skills. With these talents, you’ll have handled media and communications for a large organisation before.
In return, we offer a generous programme of benefits, including support for training and development, season ticket loan and extensive sports and fitness facilities.
How to apply
We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential and encouraged.
