Closing date:


£24,313 - £26,317 pa. plus on-call payments for providing out-of-hours rota

Full-time: 37 hours per week (normally Monday-Friday), plus out of hours cover

Location:      Based at Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters, Bestwood Lodge, Nottingham

No two days are the same working in the Corporate Communications team at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service – from planning and delivering communications campaigns that help change people’s lives, to supporting colleagues dealing with serious incidents.

Using a full range of communications channels, you’ll need to think fast, have excellent written communication skills and be confident and creative on social media. A great news sense is also a must as well as having the ability to develop strong working relationships with staff at all levels, to support the delivery of high quality internal and external communications. 

Due to the nature of the role you will need a full driving licence, as you will be required to travel and will be part of an out-of-hours rota.

If you are an unflappable, enthusiastic, proactive individual, with previous experience of working to tight deadlines in a busy press office or in journalism, then we want to hear from you. This is a challenging yet immensely rewarding position. If you’ve got what it takes, come and join us.

In return, you will receive the range of exceptional benefits you would expect from a leading employer.

Please note that CV’s will not be accepted in place of application forms.

Previous applicants need not apply.

Closing date:                       Tuesday 11th February 2020

Interview date:                    Wednesday 26th February 2020
