Folkestone & Hythe is a dynamic and innovative place to live, work and visit. Situated on Kent’s south east coast, the district is both rural and coastal in character. With an established arts and cultural hub and unrivalled regeneration, including the Garden Town Otterpool Park, the area is well connected, with London just under an hour away via the High Speed rail link and access to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel.
Based in our modern offices in the heart of Folkestone, with easy access to transport links, local shops, entertainment facilities and the seafront, we offer a flexible working environment, corporate membership and reward schemes, Employee Assistance Programme, and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
As part of a creative and talented team, you will play a key role in developing and delivering communications that promote the council’s activities and its ambitious corporate plan, as well as promoting Folkestone & Hythe as the place to live, visit, work and invest. You will need to come from a solid communications background, experienced in media relations as well as producing creative and outcome focused communications. You’ll have a flair for social media and all forms of digital marketing. But above all else, if you’ve got first-class communication and interpersonal skills, can operate on your own initiative to identify key messages or potential reputational risks, and the ability to deliver campaign and marketing strategies across all forms of media, then we want to hear from you.
For an informal discussion please contact Ashley Wilcox (Communications & Engagement Manager) on 07966640318 or email: email@example.com
Closing date for receipt of all completed applications is 1st July 2019.
