Further Information

Peterborough is certainly a City of opportunities and it’s beautiful and historic surroundings are also home to considerable challenge. The City Council is focused on making sure that citizens in our most deprived areas share in the wide range of developing opportunities, while the council itself ensures future sustainability.

To shape the communications for this work, we are looking for a professional Head of Communications to develop and lead our strategic communications service. You will be responsible for delivering both internal and external communications to support the delivery of Peterborough City Council’s vision and priority outcomes to best promote the interests of the city.

Accountable for developing and implementing a council wide communications strategy that creates and supports a positive reputation for the council and its services, you will ensure that positive messages about the council are communicated effectively to residents, key stakeholders and our people.

A passion for people, driving strategy and impact on engagement on organisational culture will be key, combined with significant experience in working at a senior level within a large and complex organisation with comparable scope, responsibilities, budget, and resources.

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire/Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.
