Fixed term Stakeholder and Communication Adviser

  • Be part of a dynamic and responsive team
  • Newly created position with the opportunity to make a real difference
  • Fixed term until December 2021

You will be an important member of strong and fast-paced team. The team is a part of the Prison Capacity Build Programme which will run until December 2021, delivering on four key tranches, comprising three key programmes dedicated to delivery of capacity and a further programme aimed at initiatives to reduce growth in the prison population.

In this operational role, you will provide specialist communications and stakeholder advice and support. You will have frequent contact with senior management, our National Office Public Affairs team and staff across the country. You will develop and implement communications and stakeholder engagement plans, to support the various workstream leads, programme directors and Prison Directors.

The successful candidate will be a confident communicator, a self-starter and a creative problem-solver. You will possess energy and enthusiasm, and a ‘can-do attitude. It is a busy and varied role, with a largely internal focus. There is complexity and challenge, so you will need to be adaptable and innovative to thrive in this environment.

This is a great opportunity for a communications professional with a least five years experience in this field. You will need to have experience in communicating with internal and external audiences, strong writing skills, initiative, an ability to plan ahead, the skills to develop collateral databases, and the resilience to work in a sometimes challenging, but always interesting sector. A relevant qualification is required and public sector experience would be of significant value.

Corrections embrace diversity and are committed to an inclusive workplace. We recognise and celebrate the uniqueness of individuals and celebrate the collective talent of all employees.

Applications close 22 April 2018.
