News & Content Manager
Looking for a significant opportunity to shape and influence outcomes for the people of Cornwall?
Cornwall is a truly unique place with a unique set of challenges and pressures, so we're looking for people to join our Strategy and Engagement team that can bring creative thinking, build on strong foundations and challenge the status quo. The Strategy and Engagement Service has a team of around 60 staff and sits within the Customer and Support Services Directorate.
We can offer the opportunity to work on high profile strategic initiatives such as the Devolution Deal, the Strategy for Cornwall, the promotion of Cornish as a recognised National Minority Group and the Council's leadership approach across key policy areas as we commence the process of leaving the European Union.
If you'd like to be at the forefront of shaping ground breaking work and changing lives, then take a look at the roles we have on offer. We want people to join our team who will share in our journey of excellence in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
Delivering strategic communications, ensuring our residents are informed and that we engage with them in meaningful ways where they are able to influence the decisions the Council makes are core to our work, which can range from working with the media, to marketing, driving behavioural change campaigns or running consultations.
As News and Content Manager, you will support the delivery of insight based news and social media content that supports the achievement of Cornwall Council's corporate objectives, priorities and strategy. The role sets the strategic vision, leading, shaping and taking full ownership of the Council's media and social media content strategies and channels.
The role requires an experienced professional with expert communications skills, high levels of creativity and a deep understanding of communications. This includes developing an engaging and resident-centric content strategy with a focus on enhancing the customer journey and experience through traditional media and digital channels, ensuring that all content is on brand and supports organisational objectives.
Supported by the Head of Communications and Engagement, the role acts as an internal consultant, providing guidance and advice to teams across the organisation, and is a key member of the Communications and Engagement senior management team.
This role requires wide experience in order to gather and understand business requirements and to create news and content which supports these business objectives. The post holder will work at an operational level and must be able to plan and deliver integrated activities that respond to the behaviours of the Council's customers and stakeholders.
The post holder will be equally comfortable working proactively to plan, manage and deliver work, as well as reactively responding to changing environmental factors and emerging issues. The post holder will be expected to be flexible, and will likely be required to work across the many different areas of the Council as business priorities and demands change.
