Join the team: Communications Lead

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

HIVE Portsmouth works with other people and organisations to improve the health and well being of people in Portsmouth.   Key partners include health and care statutory organisations with the city and the hundreds of voluntary, community and social enterprise groups (VCSE) who play a pivotal role in supporting local people.  We actively support and develop the VCSE sector within the City of Portsmouth and enable and support social action on issues that face people within Portsmouth.  

The role of Communications Lead will be to ensure effective communication, promotion, marketing, engagement, and involvement both within and out of the organisation to support our goals.

The role requires confidence in communicating with people and groups on all issues and at all levels.  Creativity in communication to effectively tell our story, and that of the VCSE to promote the sector will be key.  We are looking for someone imaginative, creative, and dynamic coupled with excellent organisational skills who can ensure that our story is heard and that the contribution of the VCSE is recognised.  Communication and promotion will be across all forms of channels, including digital and traditional so it is important to be experienced in social media, website design and content as well as traditional forms of communication such as press releases, radio interviews and written content. The postholder should be able to introduce innovative forms of communication that bring our work and that of the sector to life and can generate enhanced involvement from our stakeholders and the public.
