Head of Corporate Communications

Is this you? If you enjoy working in a stimulating, fast-paced environment, this role could be yours.

Avon and Somerset Police is a BAFTA award winning force (Murder Detectives 2016), with a national reputation for creativity and innovation in our use of social media channels, marketing campaigns and documentary making. Our relationships with regional and national media - digital, broadcast and print - are positive and strong, and we’ve evolved a winning formula for pre-trial and other media briefings to support them.

We’re looking for a new head of communications to lead our talented communications team to even greater heights, and to provide strategic communications advice to the Chief Constable and his senior team. This, along with planning and delivering a compelling programme of internal and external communications, makes for a unique role.

You’ll be able to demonstrate success in advising senior leaders on communications and engagement, particularly through a period of transformational change. At the same time,
you’ll be skilled in understanding and managing the political dynamics involved in building consensus with external stakeholders.

This is no ordinary role - you’ll need energy, creativity and flexibility. So if you feel excited about this role, we want to hear from you.

Working pattern – Flexible working, full time, part time and job share applications will be considered. Please specify if you are seeking an arrangement other than full time and how you anticipate this may be managed in the role you are applying for.

Please be advised we are unable to supply any feedback after shortlisting.

Interview dates - TBC.
