Short Term Contract | Till 31 July

As Communications Manager you will be responsible for managing the development of a single integrated report that meets legislative requirements for both the Government Response and 5-year plan and the content for a public web page to be launched in conjunction with the release of the report. To be successful, you will have a solid understanding of government processes and be confident coordinating and liaising with Department stakeholders.

This contract really requires you to deliver and comprises of two parts. The first to deliver the report, and the second to deliver the Communications 'implementation ' strategy. The report is already written, and you will be responsible for developing, reviewing, providing edits, proofreading and procuring a designer to produce the final product. The Communications Strategy is also written, but in very skeleton form. You will be responsible for fleshing it out, using the project schedule to include Communication milestones. You will work closely with the Strategic Communications and Digital Communications team, but will remain embedded in the project team yourself.

    • Deliver a final result of the publication which is presented in an innovative and engaging format which will set a benchmark for future reports.

    • Work collaboratively with stakeholders in DPC Strategic Communications, including Digital
