Head of Communications (6-month FTC)

Here is a brilliant opportunity for a seasoned, highly credible Head of Communications to join one of the UK’s leading health providers on an interim basis for the next six months.

Leading a team of four colleagues, you’ll need to showcase a significant amount of tactical acumen and technical knowhow along with boardroom gravitas and executive nous in equal measure. This well-known brand has circa 1,000 employees, about 150 years’ history and some highly-engaged stakeholders so a personal passion for – or professional experience in - the health sector would certainly be an advantage, as would some demonstrable grounding in public affairs.

The role carries a salary of up to circa £110,000 on an FTC basis, plus a car allowance and various benefits. While a hybrid working policy is in operation, you’ll need to visit the HQ in Hampshire from time to time so should give some consideration as to whether this works for you.

Please contact me for further details or if you’d like to discuss.
