Digital Communications Officer x 3

Job introduction


We're looking for motivated and experienced Digital Communications Officers to help us continue our exciting digital transformation work.

You will join a small and dedicated team creating easy to use and elegant systems that meet the needs of our users.

You will create clear and user-focused content across all council digital services – using content design and usability techniques - to provide residents and businesses with easy to understand and actionable content. 

Fixed term until 31 March 2020

For an informal discussion, please contact Thomas Davies - Digital Communications Manager at or on 01273 291045.


About the role


As a Digital Communications Officer, you will:

  • create and update user-focused content for all council digital services using our style guide, analytics and user research
  • review the work of other Digital Communications Officers and provide constructive and honest feedback
  • work closely with developers, designers and departments to make council services and content easier to use
  • ensure digital content (webpages, documents such as PDFs, images and videos) follow industry standard best practice including Government Digital Service content design guidelines and web content accessibility guidelines
  • help departments understand the importance of clear and accessible content and why it's important


Additional information


Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.

Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.

From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.


Company information


We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, LGB, male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.

As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
