Do you want to work at the heart of the action for a high profile politician in the South West?

Alison Hernandez, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is recruiting for a Communications and Engagement Manager.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, but regularly carrying out work for the PCC you will be responsible for ensuring that the PCC and her office is well supported in their day to day activities. As a member of the Office Senior Management Team you will also contribute corporately to the overall running of the office, and decision making.

This is not an ordinary Communications and Engagement role – you must have skills across a range of policy development areas, and a genuine interest in policing, community safety and high quality performance and a passion for high quality, genuine communications and engagement.

Spanning stakeholder engagement, media relations, publications, social and digital media, and events, you will be someone who is proactive and driven who thrives in a fast paced environment, who can both think and do.

You will be a confident, well-organised professional with experience of leading teams in a high profile environment. You will have the confidence and credibility to engage at senior level but be as comfortable at communicating with a vulnerable member of the public.  You will excel at working as part of and leading a team.

If this sounds like an experience that you would thrive on, then we want to hear from you.
