Do you want to lead communications with one of the largest and most engaged workforces in the NHS?

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the award-winning communications team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and shape how we involve, inform and inspire our staff so that they can deliver the best possible patient care.

As Internal Communications Manager, you will be the organisational expert on all things internal communications, supporting our clinical and corporate teams to deliver clear and timely information to our staff. You will be responsible for delivering a wide-range of different communications activity, from all-staff briefings and priority operational messages to targeted campaigns and awareness days.

You will work very closely with directors and senior managers across the Trust to make sure that organisational priorities are being communicated using the most effective and efficient methods and channels.

You will also be a champion for our staff, ensuring that their voices are heard and that we make best use of their knowledge, expertise and views in developing our communications.

As an organisation we never stand still, and this applies equally to our communications team. We are looking for someone who is always looking to identify opportunities for new and better ways of doing things.

You will be a superb writer, a creative thinker, calm under pressure and just as comfortable developing a strategy as delivering it.

As part of a large and busy communications team, you will have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of high-profile work which, in the last year alone, has involved the opening of pioneering new clinical services, responding to major incidents, facilitating VIP visits and supporting fundraising initiatives.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
