Communications Account Manager

The starting salary for this role is £41,127 per annum for working 36 hours per week. This is a 24-month fixed term contract. 

This exciting and purposeful Communications Manager role will lead the planning, implementation and evaluation of Surrey County Council’s Children, Families & Lifelong Learning (CFLL) communications, using strategic tools and channels, both internally and externally. This is a hugely rewarding role and plays a vital part in helping the directorate achieve its purpose: ensuring children and young people are seen and heard, feel safe and can grow.

The successful candidate will play a key role in developing the communications priorities and strategies across the CFLL directorate, often to tight deadlines and with conflicting priorities, and would be expected to support with complex and sensitive issues at times.

This 24-month contract will build on positive and productive relationships, will provide professional communications advice to senior officers, directors and Cabinet Members and will have experience leading communications officers to deliver high quality outcomes.

The role will deliver both planned and reactive work, alongside the wider communications team. 

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
