My client, a global FTSE100 company, is looking for an experience Content Specialist to join them on a permanent basis with a salary of £57,000 - £66,000.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a large communications team with an internal audience of c.100,000 employees. Perfect for an experienced writer or communications pro with a background in journalism.
