Islington Council is looking for an enthusiastic, creative and hard-working communications and content officer to join our news and media team.
We are determined to make Islington fairer and there is always a story to tell about the work we are doing to achieve this – whether it’s building new council homes, tackling air pollution or giving young people the chances they deserve.
You will be making the news with stories about our work; dealing with inquiries from journalists from Local, London and National Media; devising compelling content for social media and resident bulletins; and making sure council officers and Councillors are kept up-to-date with media coverage.
You will have strong communications skills and creativity, be well organised, have bags of initiative and enjoy working to tight deadlines. As part of our lively, skilled, and supportive communications team you will have the opportunity to get involved in a range of exciting projects and campaigns.
