We have a bumper edition this week with not one but two roles in the region.
PR Hub have partnered with local recruitment firm Brand Recruitment to bring you the hottest new vacancies in the region.
Vacancy One – Communications Specialist – 6-9 month contract
Operating on a global scale in 10 countries and employing upwards of 40,000 people, this organisation is a truly international company that are offering a rare opportunity for a communications specialist to join them on an interim basis.
Reporting directly to the Communications Manager your responsibilities will be heavily focused towards internal communications from both a strategic and operational perspective where you will be required to review and develop the internal communications strategy, channel and activities in order to help shape and deliver a progressive internal communications plan whilst ensuring consistency of corporate messages. One of the many exciting aspects of the role is that you will be fully exposed to senior personnel within the businesses and as such will also be required to develop a close relationship with the Global Leadership Team.
As well as being responsible for the more high profile and strategic aspects of the internal communications function, and because this is an all encompassing role, the Communications Specialist must be equally effective and comfortable when carrying out some of the more mundane day-to-day responsibilities, as well as supporting the Communications Manager. Due to this, the ability to be flexible and adapt where required is essential as is the ability to work autonomously and not be reliant on using external agencies.
This role would suit an experienced communications professional with a proven track record of success, preferably from within a B2B environment, however skill-set and previous experience are more important than sector background. You will be required to manage internal stakeholders as though they were external, therefore you will need to have excellent interpersonal and influencing skills as well as emotional intelligence in order to deal with these individuals effectively. It goes without saying, therefore, that you will also need to be an excellent relationship builder, ambitious, well organised and with strong communication skills to boot!
