Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.

The Gambling Commission are now looking for an Internal Communications & Engagement Manager to keep their 300+ employees connected and promote the organisation’s objectives.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a communications or journalism professional to make a positive, lasting impact at an exciting time in the Commission’s evolution.

Specifically, you will:

- Oversee and manage the work and portfolio of the Internal Communications Officer
- Provide advice and guidance to colleagues, particularly those leading internal change projects
- Manage internal campaigns, including events and employee surveys
- Oversee the Commission’s intranet
- Deliver creative new ways to engage teams and celebrate the organisation’s diversity
- Work as part of the out-of-hours press rota

To be considered, you will need experience of the following:

- Working in communications or journalism, including managing projects, making decisions at a senior level and dealing with colleagues at all levels within an organisation
- Communicating complex issues to different audiences, including the public
- Developing stakeholder engagement programmes
- Working alongside business change teams to provide best practice engagement and communications advice
- Developing and editing content for the web
