Communications Manager

We are looking for a creative self-starter who is enthused by working with a wide range of people, and finding new ways of engaging them. They will be fluent in Welsh and be equally comfortable using their skills to write press statements and policy papers, deliver training sessions to small charities or adapting to new social media platforms. As with most communications roles, the working day will be busy and you will be juggling competing priorities. That isn’t code for working lots of overtime; we care about work life balance. As we launch our new strategy, our new Communications Manager will help us to craft communications that ensure we are reaching the people we need to. They will be audience and data driven, ensuring we reach our full potential and are focussed in what we do.

They will lead and deliver fully bilingual communications for Hub Cymru Africa, engaging effectively with the public, the media and in policy matters, adapting communications to the different sectors and audiences. They will maximise broadcast and social media presence, represent the partnership to the media and at events as required, and play a key role in promoting Wales’ role in international development and global solidarity. They will also be responsible for delivering the day-to-day communications including social media, web editing, case studies and reports, working with volunteers as appropriate.

The Communications Manager will provide strategic coordination of many events organised by the Partnership, ensuring that they provide good cross-sector networking opportunities as well as realising their public profile potential. They will also provide advice and guidance to organisations working within the sector on improving their communications skills within a broader set of development support activities offered by the Partnership.

This vacancy has arisen due to a secondment.
