You will actively ensure their internal communications channels are managed effectively and will play a key role in the planning and scheduling of content that has been proposed and/or requested, managing expectations and acting as a 'gate-keeper' for all internal communications. You will ensure that colleagues are up to date with any changes to processes, procedures and ways of working while embedding them across teams. You will also provide expert advice and guidance to colleagues in how to optimise their messages when delivering internally. Additionally, you will support senior managers in maintaining high levels of engagement across directorates both in London and in regional and national offices.
