Associate Director, Digital, Internal Comms
£70,000 - £90,000 (REF. LB509753)

Our client is a well-established international agency with a boutique feel. It’s committed to produce first-rate communications advice for its clients that is tailor-made for the future: integrated, smart, innovative and driven by brilliant storytelling. At its heart sits an employee engagement team that helps clients discover their best stories in order to inspire, attract and engage the right people as employees and build those brands from the inside out. It is looking for its next core ambassador at senior level. You’ll be well-versed in collaborating with colleagues from digital spheres through to corporate affairs, and will have experience across integrated marketing campaigns, employee engagement strategies and business critical internal communications programmes. This is an established senior role – you’ll be an existing Associate Director or junior-end Board Director – so you’ll be responsible for managing client accounts, providing senior counsel and setting strategy. You’ll also help raise the team’s profile and relish identifying and securing new business opportunities.
