About the job:
Our Communications & Advocacy team create windows into the world of Kent; communicating inside and outside of our business to align our stakeholders with our purpose.

As Internal Communications Specialist, you’re part of the Communications & Advocacy team, and commit to staying genuine and curious in our working style, in line with our team motto, which is - We Show Up, We Learn, We Inspire.

Your responsibilities:

Reporting to our Internal Communications Director, this mid-career level role requires someone with proven experience in Internal Comms who is committed to their own professional growth.

As Internal Communications Specialist you’ll develop a deep understanding of Kent’s purpose, culture and Internal Communications Strategy. Using this knowledge and passion, you’ll partner with internal stakeholders to bring their programmes to life through engaging communications that enhance the employee experience.

We value connection and building relationships, both virtually and in person, as this role supports stakeholders globally. Therefore, we expect the candidate to be based either in the office or in a hybrid role located within 1 hour of a Kent office in the UK or UAE, where a significant portion of our team is already located.

In addition to the main role, you will have the opportunity to contribute to a new Intranet (SharePoint) project in your first few months - showcasing your creative thinking and project leadership skills. So a passion or interest in shaping digital communication channels for an exceptional user experience and/or leadership on a similar project would be a valuable asset.

In this role, you will wear multiple hats as we work smart and have fun together, creating exceptional experiences for our people that align with our open culture. Here are some of the activities you can expect to be part of:

  • Scheduling internal townhalls and workshops via MS Teams across multiple timezones
  • Work with our teammates leading creative design and external comms to ensure an aligned approach to our communications, inside and outside of the business.
  • Developing new communications document and templates, including word, excel and powerpoint.
  • Providing support and guidance to junior members of the team
Lastly, our focus on Sustainability is a top priority, including commitments to Inclusion & Belonging, Wellbeing, and Culture. We are eager to assign a new communications champion to one of these commitments, and depending on your interests, this could be you.

Your knowledge/skills, education, and experience:

Qualification/ Certification:
  • All relevant qualifications or experience in Internal Comms will be considered
  • Excellent command of the English language in both oral and written communication and skills.
  • As a champion of internal communications, we expect you to be committed to developing your own skills in all forms of communication.
