External Communications Manager (12-month FTC)

A superb opportunity for a financial PR professional seeking to make a move in-house to a global, FTSE 100-listed investment manager as External Communications Manager on a 12-month FTC basis.

A highly credible senior adviser, you’ll be responsible for helping to ensure that its corporate story is promoted positively through the business media and be a super-savvy press office operator when faced with reactive media interest or crisis situations.

Reporting to the Head of Media Relations, you’ll take on a significant role in promoting both the firm’s investment case and its corporate narrative, working with senior stakeholders and agency partners alike on proactive media strategy. You’ll be well-versed in the world of financial communications, especially results, reporting requirements and calendar work, with a demonstrable ability to act as a confident, proactive spokesperson on behalf of the business.

You’ll also need to be a resilient, accomplished relationship builder with the ability to contribute proactively to
the management of corporate news-flow and issues management, including media work on the Group’s investments and operations, business delivery, ESG and employee value proposition.
