Job Type

As one of the largest and highest performing authorities in the North West, Cheshire West and Chester Council has come a long way since our formation 10 years ago. We are proud of our excellent record of service delivery, we have an exciting regeneration and growth agenda, and our external partnerships are strong and productive.

We are currently seeking to recruit a Strategic Communications and Marketing Manager to lead the marketing, media and communications functions for the council. Managing a strong in-house team of 21, you will need to work closely with elected Members and senior officers to proactively promote the work of the council and reinforce what is already a strong brand, as well as keep our residents and staff abreast of all the latest issues via a wide array of communication channels. You will be at the heart of the organisation and there is certainly lots going on, with a new chief executive recently appointed, a significant economic growth agenda, and an on-going transformation programme.

We are therefore seeking candidates with a strong communications or marketing background, ideally within the public sector, as well as the ability to influence at the highest levels within a customer focused and politically led organisation. You will be a strategic thinker with strong prioritisation skills and the determination to put the council firmly on the 'front foot'.
