Morson are proud to be exclusively partnering with a Global Real Estate client who are looking to recruit a Communications Transformation Director for an initial period of 12 months.

Our client is looking to transform how they connect, engage and communicate with their people to support business growth and productivity. They are kicking off a comprehensive and strategically important initiative to review their entire internal communications ecosystem with a view to establishing a new Internal platform that addresses the challenges - and rises to the opportunities - they face.

Behind this, our client is looking to completely overhaul the governance and processes around their internal communications and employee engagement activities. This is a key priority in H2 2021 for which they require an experienced communications and content expert to accelerate the project and drive it forward, day-to-day.

Our clients challenge, at a glance:

  • Over-reliance on long form emails
  • Consistent feedback from our people that they are overwhelmed by the volume of emails and messaging they receive on a daily basis
  • One way communication
  • Cumbersome communications processes and lack of formal governance which has a tendency to complicate and slow down the communications process
  • A plethora of platforms - even though email is over used; no clear single point of truth
  • A tendency towards a siloed approach - we make it difficult for employees to network outside their "vertical" and this hampers productivity, innovation and career progression
  • We have a very diverse employee base:
    • How should we engage them?
    • Some of our specialist colleagues are not desk-based, they are constantly on the move driving from one job to another - how and when do they consume content, and what sort of content do they need?
    • Our Asia-Pacific colleagues, characteristically, do not like email

Our client is looking for an experienced Comms Leader who has experience of driving change and Internal platform enhancements. You will be tasked with auditing current processes, writing a business case for the planned change and then deliver this change / roll out working with a range of teams & support.

Suitable candidates will have experience of working in Senior Comms roles and have delivered similar change projects before linked to Internal Comms / Intranet overhauls.

Ideally candidates will be within commuting distance of central London although this role will offer some flexibility to work from home. This role will be offered on an initial 12 month fixed term basis and will come with a salary of up to £105,000 pa + benefits.
