A leading insurance company is looking for an Interim External Communications Manager on a six month contract paying a day rate of £450 - £500 (inside IR35).

Due to an upcoming largescale business strategic change, the leadership team has recognised the requirement for an external communications specialist who can plan, develop and deliver the communications strategy for customers and other key stakeholders. This is a dual strategic/ delivery focused role with the ideal candidate having had experience with significant business transformation, ideally in the financial services (insurance, private equity, banking) or similar corporate field. Experience working on changes in business strategy, M&A, restructures or something related to this would also be extremely advantageous.

This position is stand-alone and reports to the Marketing Director with a dotted line to the Programme Director. The contract can be mainly remote, though there would be an expectation to go to the south coast office for meetings every now and then.
