Change Communications Lead - Outside IR35

Job Reference: 37825903

My Client, a global Media company, has committed to a set of internal transformation programmes to improve on their processes and technologies over the next two years. At a high level there are two key programmes driving this transformation: a Salesforce programme and a Finance programme delivering SAP S4 Hana.

The Change Communications Lead will work with the programme team to build, maintain and deliver timely, targeted, creative and effective internal & external communications aligned to the overall project plan, respond to feedback and measure results.

  • A track record delivering change communications in a demanding complex organisation

  • A diplomatic and experienced influencer who can work with and across numerous teams, clients and internal stakeholders comfortably
  • A highly-organised, self-starting senior change communication communicator with a track record of developing communications tools and programmes to engage employees across diverse functions.
  • Proven track record of working with programmes and business stakeholders to deliver engaging communications.
  • Self-motivated, organised and confident managing upwards and working with more senior stakeholders.
The key responsibilities will include:
  • Lead and deliver all communications for the Platforms Programmes project.
  • Build, maintain and deliver timely, targeted, creative and effective internal and external communications through a clearly-defined, detailed communications plan that aligns to the overall programme plan.
  • Ensure business readiness through clear communication and clear, regular articulation of the business benefits of the programmes to our various stakeholders.
  • Partner with the Change & Adoption lead, Programme Director Project Sponsor to develop compelling change communications outputs to guide people through the change cycle.
  • Develop new and imaginative ways of communicating change to colleagues across multiple geographies, cultures and working environments.
  • Create engaging content (new stories, leader messages, videos etc) and ensure all messages are clear, consistent, easy for colleagues to understand and are engaging and collaborative.
  • Partner with stakeholders to oversee development of external communications connected to the project, including to suppliers and customers.
  • Coordinate activities with the rest of the programme team, communications team and senior leaders to ensure communications are aligned and messaging is consistent with corporate narrative.
  • Build relationships with and earn the trust of stakeholders and colleagues within and outside of the project.
  • Seek out and respond to feedback and measure results.
  • Build and maintain the communication platforms, such as the programme Google site.
  • Continually revise and adjust approach in response to feedback and impact of individual communications.
