Everyone keeps telling you to give up looking for that dream communications job. An innovative company with a youthful mindset combined with the security of decades of industry experience, looking for a Communications Manager to take the lead and implement ground-breaking strategies? They said it didn’t exist.
They were wrong.
We are Verisure Smart Alarms, and we’ve been providing peace of mind to millions of customers across the world for over 30 years. Our DNA is all about teamwork, innovation, and commitment to building trust across the UK by spreading awareness about crime prevention.
But we need help.
We’re looking for a motivated Communications Manager who is passionate about bringing people together. We’re a big company, and we need someone who is happy to chat with everyone, from our field agents to our Managing Director.
As the Communication Manager, you will source information from across departments and branches, and deliver it to the company through emails and by writing and managing content. You will be in charge and manage our new intranet platform. You will also work closely with the HR Director to enhance employer branding and promote company projects.
You’ll be given opportunities to plan and promote company events and be responsible for proposing innovative communications strategies. Additionally, there will be occasional projects with our marketing department.
We’re currently doing a huge push for new hires, which means you will work with recruitment to develop, implement, and retarget key campaigns. We will also need new content for Facebook, LinkedIn, and job sites. This is one area where a former copywriter might shine – we need someone who can draw people in with snappy content.
That’s why this position is perfect for someone with a digital marketing background who wants to move towards an HR-oriented profession, though we are of course happy to meet applicants who already have experience with internal communications and/or writing content for job ads.
