A leading brand in the leisure and travel industry with a fantastic reputation are looking for an experienced Communications Manager to join their busy team.

  • Creating communications materials including press releases, blog posts, articles, website content and copy – in addition to video and imagery
  • Identifying media opportunities to promote the business proactively and drive positive brand association

Please note, due to the nature of this business, the role will not always be a traditional 9-5 model, and there will be times when you will need to be available outside of traditional business hours to suit business needs. A degree of flexibility would be required to accommodate this when needed.

  • A naturally inquisitive and curious personality, with a real passion for communications and your role
  • Prior experience in a line management or mentoring capacity in your roles, as you will be managing 2 direct reports

T’s & C’s

As mentioned above, there will be times where you will need to be available outside the traditional 9-5 office hours in line with business needs, so a degree of flexibility will be required.
