You would be based out of their modern open plan HQ in Marylebone, and in reaching distance from your key Stakeholders and the decision makers.

You would be covering all things internal comms across internationally across the UK, Europe and parts of the US with the help of one other based in Australia.

The role needs someone who thrives off a fast changing pace of work.

You will need to be a self-starter and someone who enjoys dealing with the Senior Executive level team yet someone who equally enjoys doing the creative delivery of those projects.

In terms of support you will have a fantastic in-house creative services team to hand who can help with anything from PowerPoints to larger projects.
