Hackney

Diverse communities, art, iconic buildings, an Olympic legacy, City Airport, the imminent arrival of Victoria & Albert Museum and the BBC, and exciting partnerships with The University of East London make Newham one of the most dynamic and interesting London Local Authorities to work for right now.

THE ROLE

Newham has so much to offer, and we’re looking for a creative and ambitious communications and marketing leader who will help us tell compelling stories and make an impact, whether that’s through lobbying, working with the media, via digital channels, or by developing innovative, thought-provoking campaigns to deliver Newham’s ambitions.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will lead a large service across marketing, communications, policy, public affairs, resident engagement, and Citizens Assemblies. The arrival of our new Chief Executive, rebranding ambitions and Newham’s recent bid to become the next Borough of Culture, present huge opportunities.

You will be able to lead and develop first-class resident engagement strategies and further our work to empower our communities and give them a voice to shape policy and delivery in local areas. You will be a lead adviser to the corporate management team, the Mayor and elected members, and will understand how to operate in a political environment to build a Fairer Newham.

As Chief Marketing Officer, you will help us harness our strengths and capitalise on opportunities for the borough and residents. We’re looking for someone with extensive connections across media, who can demonstrate a track record of leading high-profile campaigns, and brings passion for creativity and inclusivity in all its forms. You will be an excellent communicator, with strong stakeholder management skills, and the ability to work collaboratively to drive change.

This is a fantastic opportunity to make a significant impact in a diverse and exciting London borough.
