Runnymede Borough Council in north Surrey is looking for a Marketing and Communications Officer who has enthusiasm and new ideas coupled with experience and a string of successes to impress us with.
We’re looking for someone with the confidence to explain why marketing is important, how it works and who knows the best ways to deliver our messages and increase engagement and revenue.
In practice we’re looking for an experienced colleague who is comfortable conceiving, planning, securing support for and delivering marketing campaigns based on evidence, including demographic data.
You’ll be leading three main strands of our marketing work:
- Individual projects and services within the Council.
- Addlestone One and Egham Gateway, two small shopping centres which the Council owns.
- Our imminent Community Services shared service with another borough council.
In addition to this, you will have day to day responsibility for the Communications needs of two-three business units in the Council.
You should be able to demonstrate knowledge of campaign planning and show how you have supported teams or clients. Using evidence to shape activity, negotiating with senior colleagues and delivering strong outcomes with small budgets are central to our work, so be prepared to show how you have done this.
You’ll have experience of and the chance to work on:
- Web editing
- Paid and organic social media
- Content creation
- Media relations
Brand management, corporate style guides, photography, video and internal communication are also on our minds and we will be looking to you to contribute ideas to how we can innovate in these areas too.
We are a local authority, so knowledge of how councils work and the local government landscape would be useful, but first and foremost we need a professional marketer and/or communicator who can spot risks and opportunities, plan and execute projects effectively.
