This new role is a great opportunity for an External Communications Executive/Press Officer with some relevant experience to develop their experience and skills further in our leading trade association.

Within the post, you will have the chance to contribute to an essential industry critical to construction and manufacturing. Part of the attraction to the job will be the broad range of external audiences we communicate to over an equally broad range issues, including (but not limited to): sustainability; resource use; land use planning; regulation; climate change; carbon, energy and resource taxation; biodiversity and nature conservation; infrastructure and public investment; transport; housing, construction and the built environment. We have a strong track record in Communications, political lobbying and sustainable development initiatives, and we need your skills to enhance that reputation further.

As a result of the pace of evolving policy in all of the above areas, our Communications team, and especially External Communications, needs to be more proactive than ever on these and other developing topics, so this is an "outward facing" role, reporting to our Director of Communications and working with a range of colleagues, particularly the Public Affairs team and up to the Chief Executive.

In turn, you will have:

- A solid and proven track record in delivering media relations on a wide-ranging and rounded basis, i.e. "old" and "new" media, plus trade and social media, to enable them to make a quick and effective impact. We are open to that being from an agency background or in house.
- Good written, presentational, and general communications skills and an ability to produce accurate and concise outputs.
- Able to interpret sometimes complex industry issues and communicate these simply.
- Work effectively with specialist and technical colleagues.
- Comfortable working in a collaborative environment where constructive feedback (e.g. editing written work) can be both taken and given freely and openly, at all level of seniority.
- Finally, a self-starter, who can manage a workload independently, but also works closely, effectively, and collaboratively with colleagues.

Please apply today to be considered for this excellent newly-created opportunity.
