Anonymised Application – in keeping with Camden’s commitment to inclusion the recruitment to this role is anonymised and supports the objective of reducing the impact of unconscious bias.

The Role

This role is all about helping Camden Council to respond quickly and effectively to issues or crises and proactively communicating the Council’s priority work through well-produced multimedia content.

If you enjoy the buzz of big media and political stories, creating a variety of engaging, message-driven content and are looking to develop your communications skills and experience in a multi-discipline team, this could be the job for you.

You’ll be based in the Media and External Relations team within Camden Council’s wider Communications service, working with guidance on day-to-day work from our Senior Media and External Relations Officers and reporting officially to our Senior Media Manager.

Your role will include a specific focus on producing and publishing multimedia content and you will have a good understanding of how to target audiences through a variety of channels. With the support of the team and following the Council’s Channel Strategy, you will be expected to manage day-to-day output of the council’s social and digital media channels, produce short videos and other shareable social media content, write copy for, edit and manage the distribution of the council’s e-newsletter and assist with print products the council produces, including the Council’s residents’ magazine and information inserts in local newspapers.

You will work with experienced External Relations professionals to produce news releases and interview briefing notes, provide broadcast media support and agree responses to media enquiries, allowing you to gain experience across the team and build a clear connection between news and channel.

You will work with and advise key stakeholders on a daily basis including cabinet councillors, directors, heads of services, partners, journalists and service users.

You also will help provide an out of hours emergency news media service and enhanced monitoring and reporting service, on a rotational basis.

About you

You’ll be imaginative and possess excellent communication skills, verbally and in writing. You will also be an experienced problem solver who can work on their own initiative and with others, be adaptable and be prepared to take on a wide variety of project work. You’ll also have a keen news sense and political awareness – and be as interested in the story and campaign, as the channel.

You will be customer-focused, with experience of developing good relationships with various teams and services across an organisation. You will have a strong desire to work for a public sector organisation dedicated to supporting its communities through a variety of challenges including the cost-of-living, housing and climate crises.
