This role will involve working outside of office hours and remotely.

We’re looking for four digital communications officers to join the Greater London Authority’s digital communications team at City Hall, London. You will manage our GLA business and Mayor of London social media and digital comms channels. If you’re a digital comms and/or social media whiz with experience of running public-facing digital channels, we’d love to hear from you.

This is an interesting, busy and challenging job. You’ll be at the heart of our efforts to engage Londoners in what we do. You’ll work across both our social media and comms channels including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, email and our website. Your main role will be to draft and post content, as well as monitor channel engagement.

You’ll be a self-starter who can work without direct supervision. Your communication skills will be second to none.  You should be as confident dealing with senior staff out-of-hours as you are with members of the public. You’ll need to understand what it means to work for a socially and politically sensitive organisation. It would be great if you knew a bit about the wider GLA group and London’s government too.

You should have experience of using social media for marketing, customer service or PR campaigns. Ideally, you’ll have worked in a similar role for a high-profile government or public-sector role. You will also be familiar with content management systems and email marketing CRMS.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate. If that sounds like you, please apply below.

*Working patterns will vary across a four-week shift plan to cover 7am-10pm, Monday-Sunday. An example shift pattern is available to view in the job description document*
