Do you have a strong background in communications? Do you have a good knowledge of various media channels? Do you want a role where you can implement change?

About the Team & Role
In this role you will be mainly focussed on activities such as introducing and designing a new website, assisting with the introduction of any new scheme member and employer portals, producing email campaigns and monitoring their effectiveness, hosting webinars and face to face events, individual meetings with employers, graphical/animated videos, targeted communications, and newsletters.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to lead our approach to communicating and working with the members and employers that make up the Gloucestershire Pension Fund and you will be responsible for helping the Fund achieve its ambitious goals by specialising and leading the Fund to achieve best practice.

It would be helpful if you had experience of working in Local Government Pensions (or any pension related role) but this is not essential.

You will also lead a small team so it would be helpful if you also have experience in this area (but again this is not essential).
