We are looking for a confident and friendly person to join our team as Communications Officer to lead our climate change communications.

You will be building an extensive, long-running campaign so you must have experience of leading communications campaigns or projects. You will form good relationships with policy teams to transform policy information into appropriate communications for multiple audiences. You will create content for London Councils’ social media channels, commission work from external designers, manage events and stakeholder engagement.

Our climate change work has a high profile amongst senior management and external partners so you need the confidence and interpersonal skills to inspire their respect and to provide expert advice on achieving our communications objectives.

Reporting to the Head of Digital Communications and Campaigns you will enjoy being part of a close-knit team committed to working with internal and external partners.

Members of this team are currently hybrid working, combining office and remote working.
