We are looking for a creative and highly motivated individual with an eye for detail to support the development of our website and intranet. 

We have an exciting new opportunity for a Web Communications Officer who will create, edit and publish easy to read content which is engaging and helps to promote and explain the work of the council.

Working within the Communications Team you will contribute the team’s work plans helping to join up communication activities across the council. You will work with services across the council to ensure that all website and intranet content is accurate, relevant and up to date. 

You will also produce regular reports analysing web statistics and use these to improve content for our customers. You will also work closely with colleagues within Customer Services and ICT on the technical side of the website and intranet to ensure that both are fully accessible and developed to meet our customers’ needs.
